Alburger, United States Marine Corps, was born in 1888 in Pennsylvania to Abraham C. and Lena S. Alburger. Besides Ralph, there was a brother, Eugene and a sister, Helen. The Alburgers had moved to Camden County, New Jersey, by 1913, when Eugene passed away at age 13. The family purchased a cemetery plot at Arlington Cemetery at Cove Road and Westfield Avenue. Ralph Alburger entered the military in 1917. Discharged after World War I, he was living with his widowed mother Lena Alburger at 209 South Cove Road in Merchantville, New Jersey, and working as a clerk in 1920, supporting his mother, grandmother, sister Helen, and a nephew. At some point shortly thereafter, Ralph C. Alburger rejoined the Marines, and had served all over the world, before taking ill. He passed away on March 9, 1945.
