Charles "Edward" was a son of George W. Duren and Nancy J. Link Duren. He had 5 known siblings: Frank (b. 4/1880), Dollif (brother--b. 8/1883), twin sister Ada (b. 8/1885), Etta (Duren) Ardenreith (b. 3/1890), and Gertrude (b. 5/1891).

Edward was the first husband of my great-great-aunt, Alice McClary Duren. They married on December 20, 1909 and had a daughter, Ruth, who was born prematurely and died at only 2 days old on April 1, 1911. They also had a son Elgin (b. about 1916) who my Aunt Annie remembers meeting. She said he could play a banjo and sing very well.

Edward was seriously injured when a wall caved in at the lead mine where he was working in St. Francois Co., MO. He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis, but passed away the same day.
