Thursday, April 4, 1929


Chas. J. Aldrich departed from this life March 25, 1929, after an illness of six hours, at the age of 48 years, 10 months and 21 days. His illness was due to gastric indigestion, followed by heart failure.

Mr. Aldrich was born Mary 4, 1880, in Smith Center, Smith County, Kansas. He lived for several years in Lincoln, Mo. After his school years at Olney, Mo., he came west to Garfield, where he started farming, as that was his chosen profession.

He was united in marriage to Miss Ellen Anderson, of Garfield, April 24, 1907. To this union were born seven children. He leaves to mourn him, his wife and six children, Ruby, Chas, Jr., Louise, Ruth, Dean and Gladys. Marvin having passed away July 19, 1924. A mother, one brother and two sisters: Mrs. Martha Alice Aldrich and sister Nell Aldrich, of Lewis, Kansas. Mrs. C.F. Doughty, of Lewis, and Don E. Aldrich, Jr. of Garfield, besides other relatives and a host of friends.

Charles J. Aldrich was born in Missouri, May 4, 1880. He hung around the "show me" state for about twenty years, during most of which time he was hearing reports both good and bad about the excellent chances for a young man of ability out in western Kansas. Being doubtful by nature, as all Missourians are, but hearing reports almost every day of a conflicting nature about the prospects in the Great Arkansas Valley, he decided to come and see for himself. He came west in 1902 and even though from Missouri, it was not long until all his doubts were cleared up and he had decided to make Pawnee county and Garfield his home. He was married on April 24, 1907, to Miss Ellen Anderson. They have one child. At present he is located on 160 acres six miles southeast of town. Mr. Aldrich has never been sorry that he has made his home in this community and firmly believes it to be the land of opportunity for those endowed with ability and perseverance.
