Charles Augustus Gorman was born in Ireland, April 15, 1856. The youngest child of James and Ellen Slaven Gorman.

Charles arrived in the United States March 29, 1870 from Ireland, porting in New York City. He became a Naturalized citizen on December 6, 1888.

Charles was married to Margery Hamilton MacDonald on November 12, 1884 in Providence by Rhode Island Pastor James C. Walsh.

Charles and Margery made their home in Providence Rhode Island. They had 11 children, seven that lived to adulthood. The other four died before their first birthdays. Margory died at 10 months, Baby Girl died a month after birth. No record of the little girl's name. Two other children sex unknown at this time were born sometime between 1901 and 1910. The 1900 Census showed there being 9 children born to Margery and Charles, 7 which survived. The 1910 Census records show there were 11 children, 7 which survived. So, I know there were other children not named and born sometime after the turn of the century. The 7 children that grew into adulthood were Richard, Nellie, Jennie, Charlie, Mame, Eddie and Jessie.

Charles was the grandfather of Leonard, Raymond, Harold and Marjorie McCarthy, Margarette Gorman, and Virginia, Marion, Dorothy and Jeanne Preston.

Charles was my great grandfather

His Occupation according to census records was boilerman, laborer, he also worked in a zinc factory at one time, and
at the time of his death was a night watchman.

According to Charles death certificate Charles died by drowning. Doctor on record was C.N.Griffin. Undertaker T Quinn.

When I first added Charles Gorman to Find A Grave, the only information I had was his name and a marriage date, even that was questionable. I wasn't sure how many siblings exactly my grandmother had, and just recently I thought one was missing and found her under a name I never even knew, even though I knew my great aunt and stayed at her home many times as a young kid. There are still so many questions I have, and in time I know I will get some answers, and some I may never know.

I want to say thank you to Barbara Carroll. I found her on a genealogy site and she has helped me so much in searching for records I had no luck in finding. Barbara found the burial records of Margery and Charles, they are buried in Mount Saint Mary's cemetery, but years ago a fire destroyed the cemetery's records. Where I may know the cemetery, I may never know the exact location. I will keep searching though, I'm not sure if there is a gravestone, but if there is one, I'll find my greatgrandparents.
