Alvis was born in 1846, and was born in Burgkirchen, Oberbayern, Germany. He married Agnes Spitzel (or Spiess) which means "little Spear". From 1858 until 1862 Alvis learned the trade of saddle maker in Passau

Passau (previously Latin: Batavis or Batavia) is a town in Lower Bavaria, Germany. It is also known as the Dreiflüssestadt or "City of Three Rivers," because the Danube is joined at Passau by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north.

Passau's population is 50,415, of whom about 11,000 are students at the local University of Passau. The university, founded in the late 1970s, is the extension of the Institute for Catholic Studies (Katholisch-Theologische Fakultät) founded in 1622. It is renowned in Germany for its institutes of economics, law, theology, computer science and Cultural Studies.

In 1868 Alvis was a volunteer in 2nd Yeager Battalion After 21 years he was released at the rank of Sergeant. At this time he became a clerk in the War ministers office, and a year later he was transferred to the position of cashier in the Military Treasury Office. In 1894 he was promoted to the position of "Functioneer" in the Military Treasury Office. In 1900 he was promoted to the position of "Consulate" and transferred to the 3rd Army Corps in Nuremberg. In July 25th, 1910 he was pensioned out due to wounds occurred in the Line-Of Duty (Shell-Shocked, Loss of hearing)

When WWI was declared against Russia, France and England, Alvis wrote letters to his son Erhard (who had moved to America to be employed as a jeweler/silversmith) to come back to Germany, going first to France to assist in the war effort; but Erhard refused. He said America was his home now.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Alvis' lifetime.

In 1846, in the year that Alvis Aloysius Wallner was born, on November 4th, the Donner Party was stranded in the Sierra Nevada on its way to California. The ill-fated wagon train was snowed in and couldn't get out of the mountains for 3 months. Some went for help - on foot - but the majority of the 87 people in the wagon train were stuck in heavy snow, without food. Only 48 of the original settlers survived - some by cannibalism of the dead.

In 1870, Alvis was 24 years old when on March 31st, Thomas Mundy Peterson was the first African-American male who voted in an election - a local election about the town charter. Peterson, a school principal, was also the first to hold elected office and the first to sit on a jury.

In 1888, Alvis was 42 years old when on July 25th, a court stenographer from Salt Lake City - Frank Edward McGurrin - decisively beat the competition in a typing contest in Ohio. He was supposedly the only person who used touch typing and is believed to have invented the method. Touch typing is ubiquitous now - but Frank's win is what convinced everyone that the method was good!

In 1905, when he was 59 years old, the first movie theater opened in the United States in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was the first theater to show nothing but movies - silent films. Two men, John P. Harris and his brother-in-law Harry Davis, opened the Nickelodeon on Smithfield Street - charging 5 cents for admission. The first day, 450 people watched movies at the new theater - on the second day, more than 1500 people stood in line to get in.

In 1924, in the year of Alvis Aloysius Wallner's passing, on January 21st, Vladimir Lenin, a leader of the Russian Revolution and the first leader of the Soviet Union died. He had survived two assassination attempts but had subsequent physical problems, suffering 3 strokes. He was in such great pain, it is said that he asked Stalin to poison him. The circumstances of his death are still disputed. He did oppose Stalin as the next leader - nonetheless, Stalin won a power struggle and ruled as a Soviet dictator until his death in 1953.
