Charles' original burial record showed he was laid to rest in Central Cemetery. It is unknown if and where his remains were removed.

Charles was murdered by an individual who was following him and a prisoner he was transferring to the San Francisco City Prison. According to the report in the San Francisco Morning Call, April 28, 1877, "Charles was shot in the back of the head." The alleged murderer and his companion were captured by Mr. Eugene Wood and Officers Price and Eaton. Charles was survived by his widow Sarah and his two babies, Margaret Ann and John.
