KINDRED—Oct. 26, CHARLES FIRMAN, husband of the late Sara Elizabeth Kindred. Funeral services and Int. private, 1500 N. 15th st., Tues., 11 A. M. St. Paul, Minn. papers please copy. (Philadelphia Inquirer, October 28, 1918) [Contributed by Meges]
C. F. Kindred is endeavoring to prove to the citizens of Philadelphia that unless they get their drinking water through a canal, of which he owns a controlling interest, they will be liable to sickness and death from impurities. There are no flies roosting on Charles' clothes even in that large city. (Brainerd (Minnesota) Dispatch, 02 August 1889, p. 1, c. 5) [Contributed by A. Nelson]
C. F. Kindred, general agent of the Philadelphia & Reading railroad passed through the city Tuesday in his private car accompanied by Daniel Buck, select councillor, ex-Harbor Master Klemmer, his son Alfred and his sister, the latter stopping in Brainerd until the return of the party to visit her sister, Mrs. [Cornelia J. Kindred] Merritt [See Judge George W. Holland's Will]. At this city the party was joined by J. H. Koop who will journey with them to the National Park and from there to Vancouver and other points on the Pacific coast, returning to this city in about three weeks when Mr. Kindred will take his party to Sylvan lake for a few days fishing and will also introduce them to other interesting summer outing places in this vicinity. (Brainerd (Minnesota) Dispatch, 05 August 1898, p. 8, c. 4) [Contributed by A. Nelson]
C. F. Kindred and party from Philadelphia returned Wednesday from a trip to the coast in a special car. J. H. Koop accompanied the party from this city and reports a very pleasant trip. Last evening the band serenaded Mr. Kindred's party and spent a very pleasant evening in the "Reading" which has been standing on the track at the Sixth street crossing since its arrival in the city. The party leaves today for Philadelphia. (Brainerd (Minnesota) Dispatch, 26 August 1898, p. 8, c. 4) [Contributed by A. Nelson]
DEATH TAKES FORMER OWNER OF PHILA. TIMES
Chas. Firman Kindred, Long Active
in Politics and Rail-roadings
Charles Firman Kindred, one of the most prominent figures a score of years ago in the political and journalistic life of Philadelphia, died yesterday, at his home, 1500 North Fifteenth street. He had been ill for two months with a complication of diseases. He was about 70 years of age.
Mr. Kindred was born in Clifton Valley, New Jersey, and went west as a young man accepting a position with the Northern Pacific. Later he became assistant agent of the Great Northern and when he came to the Philadelphia and Reading, it was a general agent. Mr. Kindred was actively interested in the extension of the Northeast Penn branch from Hartsville to New Hope, and when that line was completed, he bought a farm at Grenoble, some ten miles north of Willow Grove. During this time he maintained a home in this city and was soon a Republican leader in the Twenty-ninth ward, of which the late Israel Duncan was the head. He never held office, though he was one of the "306" "old guard" delegates to the Republican National Convention, which voted to give Grant a third term.
In 1909 Mr. Kindred, who, meantime had left the Republican Party to espouse the cause of free silver under Bryan, purchased the Philadelphia Times, and as the owner of that paper, he is chiefly remembered in this city. He was, however, unable to make much headway with his new enterprise, and sold it about a year later to Adolph S. Ochs, of the New York Tines, Later the Times ceased to exist as a separate publication, being merged with the Public Ledger. (Philadelphia Inquirer, October 27, 1918) [Contributed by Meges]
