What became of Charles is SO sad!!
He died in the St. Joseph Missouri State Hospital #2.
I was originally puzzled by the lack of information on his death certificate. "Unknown" was written for everything else.The doctor who signed the certificate wrote that he had been in his care from Sept 29, 1927 until his death on April 22, 1931, yet had hardly information about him. Only that he was a widower, born in Illinois and his occupation had been a Drayman.
St Joseph Missouri State Hospital #2 is now a prison.

Note: Cemetery record and obituary were both transcribed incorrectly, they don't match. It's possible that nobody knew his information. Every census put his birth year as 1859.
