Birth: 1844
Death: 1918

Son of Victor and Rebecca Stillwell Labenski.
He came to the Buda area with his parents when he was 6 yrs old. He served with Gen. Hood's Texas Bridgade and was wounded at Franklin, TN one of the bloodiest battles, 6,500 soldiers killed and 12 generals died. He served loyaly for several months without pay as the war began to wear down the South.
Like many Confedrate survivors, Pvt. Labenski had to walk much of the way home. On Nov. 3, 1869 he married Fannie Jane Carpenter, daughter of W.H.H. Carpenter, whose family members were devout methodists. They bought land and moved to the property south and west of their parents. They attended church services at Cole Springs and at Elm Grove School house. When the railroad came and the church needed a building in the new town of Du Pre (renamed Buda), Charles was one of the trustees of the church who acquired the land and constructed the building.
