Uncle Charlie Blue did not marry until late in life (in his 60's) when he married a widow. I have fond memories of visiting his Blacksmith Shop at Elkhart in the winter time when I was a child. It would be pitch dark inside except for the hot coals glowing in the darkness and always seemed sort of warm and cozy. Uncle Charlie was very stocky in build and shook all over when he laughed.
