Charles C. Day

Charlie was born in Tennessee in 1871 to John Henry Day and Susan Halstead Day. He was the second child in a family that included three boys and three girls. Charlie's brother's were; John Henry Day and James Day. His sisters were; Ida Anna (Day) Seay ,Lillie and Bessie Day.

Early life
Charlie's first record he appears in is the 1880 census in Maury County, Tennesse. His name is seen as "C. C. Day". An abbreviation that he uses more then once in later documents. His name is also found abbreviated as "Chas Day".

On April 1, 1894 in Lake County, Tennessee, Charles Day married Minnie Dovisky. She was described as "a blacked haired French woman" by Charlie's niece. Minnie's father, an immigrant from France, settled in Lake County, Tennesse. This fact can be confirmed in all of her census records. About a year after Charlie and Minnie's marriage, the couple welcomed a son. Charles C. Day Jr., born July 1, 1895 in Tiptonville, Tennessee, also of Lake County.

Family leaves Tennessee
Charlie was said to have given up farming shortly after getting married. This is told in a letter that was later written by one of his nieces. Charlie's father also died in 1899. He was said to have briefly stayed nearby to help his mother with some of the burden in working the family farm. It's possible that his new marriage or father's death were what compelled him to leave Tennesse and the family trade once and for all.

By 1900 Charlie, Minnie and their son were living less than fifty miles away in Pemiscot, Missouri. According to the census, Minnie's brother-in-law,William Blankenship (her sister's husband) was also living in the home. The 1910 census finds the Day family moved again. This time in Poinsett County, Arkansas. Charlie's occupation is listed as working at a sawmill. Minnie's sister Jessie Covington can be found living a couple houses away with her husband and children.

Aberdeen, Washington

Charlie and his family moved to the northeast in Aberdeen,Washington between 1910-1920. Both Charlie Sr. and Charlie Jr. were employed by White Star Lumber Company in the sawmill.

According to Charlie's last census records, he remained in the city of Aberdeen (also of Grays Harbor County) until his passing on July 12, 1937.

Charles Day's wife Minnie, followed him in death just fours years later, on June 5, 1940.
