Birth: Jul. 14, 1851
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 14, 1924
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA

Charles Oliver died in West Bradford Township. His age varies on different documents. I've settled on his Birth Year of 1851; mainly because his brother, Morris Cadwallader Handwork was born 4 Mar 1850, (he is aged 10 on the 1860 U.S. Census) and Oliver couldn't have been born 14 Jul 1850!

The closest document I believe to be most correct is the 22 Jun 1860 U.S. Federal Census, Loags, West Nantmeal Township, Chester Co., PA. It states he is aged eight (8) years, which means he would turn aged nine that July.

Therefore, I believe the Birth Year of "1850" as carved into the Memorial Monolith pictured here, is incorrect.
