His obituary in the Leon Reporter June 5, 1913. In part it says Charles Carroll the well known janitor of the south school building, was found
dead in the basement at the school building last Friday evening shortly after six o'clock, and had evidently been dead since the previous evening. He lived in the basement, doing his own cooking. Mr. Carroll was born in Germany in 1845
and was about 69 years of age. When a lad he came to America and lived for a time in St. Louis, and when the civil war broke out he enlisted in the union army and was sent to Jefferson Barracks. He came to Leon in 1869 and for a number of years worked as a wagon maker, being an expert workman. In later years he was employed as janitor of the court house and of the school buildings. He was a very quiet and industrious man and a good citizen. He was
married after coming to Leon to Miss Etna Akes who died about five years ago. One daughter was born to them, Mrs. Minnie Brady, who resides at Los Angeles, California. He is also survived by a half brother who lives at St. Louris Mo.
The deceased was a member of the G.A.R. Post, the Odd Fellows and Masonic lodges. Funeral services were held at the M.E. Church Sunday afternoon. Rev. Guy J Fansher gave a short funeral address. The Odd Fellows and Masons
attended in a body and his comrades of the G.A.R. Post acted as body guard.
The services at the grave were in charge of the Odd Fellows.
