Charles Schaufel was born in Vienna, Austria (Wein, Osterreich), on the 18th of September 1877. He was eldest son of Ludwig Schaufel, and his wife, Anna Jausch, both natives of Austria.

Charles siblings included four sisters, and one brother. Their names were: Laura, Mary, Henry, Ella, and Freda.

On June 24th, 1888, Ludwig and Anna Schaufel, along with their first born children, Charles, Laura and Mary (aka "Anna"), set sail from Hamburg, Germany, and Le Havre, France, aboard the ship Moravia, bound for America. The family arrived in New York, New York, on the 9th of July 1888.

From New York, the family traveled across country and settled in San Francisco, California, where Charles brother Henry, and sisters Ella and Freda were born.

Charles and his father were both employed by John Weiland's Brewery, in San Francisco. Charles held various positions while at Weiland', such as: bottler, cellarman, and brewer. The family resided on Bronte Street, San Francisco.

It was during this period that he met his life long friend, and future brother-in-law, Peter Mirrasoul, also employed by Weilands.

The early 1900's brought several life changes in Charles life. Among those changes were his marriage to Theresa Siegl, daughter of Antone and Theresa Siegl; the death of his father, Ludwig Schaufel,in 1903; and the birth of his two sons, Clarence (born 1904) and Charles (born 1906).

Charles work experience was vast. He worked in a variety of different fields over the years, ranging from that of a grocer, to a brewer, at John Weiland's Brewery, and later became a Foreman at Hageman's Brewery, located in San Francisco. Charles was also a talented auto repairman, as well as a successful Real Estate salesman, at McKenzie Realty Company, also located at the time, in San Francisco.

In later life, Charles moved to Los Altos, where he established a ranch, and raised horses. As the town began to develop, he moved to Los Altos Hills, and eventually to Oakdale, where he would live to celebrate his 100th Birthday among family and friends!
