Charles Cephus Middleton was born June 18, 1840, in Marion County, Illinois, son of William Harris Middleton and Nancy Elizabeth Eddings.

On March 13, 1861, in Marion County, Illinois, Charles married Mary Jane Breeze, who was born June 23, 1844, in Marion County, Illinois, daughter of Jesse Breeze and Catherine Maxine Maxey. Charles and Mary Jane had 12 children: Sarah C. born June 17, 1861 in Marion County, Illinois; James A. born April 4, 1864 in Illinois; Zillah E. born July 19, 1866 in Illinois; Susan Rebecca born November 18, 1869 in Illinois; Marion J. born December 22, 1871 in Arkansas; February 23, 1874 in Arkansas; John W. born January 14, 1876 in Arkansas; Nancy C. born March 22, 1877 in Texas; Mary born December 23, 1879 in Texas; Thomas T. born April 19, 1882 in Texas.

In 1880, Charles, age 39, a farmer, and Mary Jane, age 36, were living in Precinct 5, Texas (Wise County) with seven children: James A., age 16, born in Illinois; Zilliah E., age 12, born in Illinois; Susan R., age 10, born in Missouri; Marion J., age 8, born in Arkansas; George H., age 6, born in Arkansas; John, age 4, born in Arkansas; Nancy C., age 3, born in Texas; and Mary V., age 1, born in Texas. Several other Middleton families who likely were related were living nearby.

Mary Jane died January 21, 1883 in Texas. On September 14, 1884, in Aurora, Texas (Wise County), Charles married again to Nancy J. McLain, who was born May 16, 1837 in Jefferson County, Illinois, daughter of Joel McLain and Sarah Wigginton. Nancy had 11 children by her first marriage to Jesse Evert Daniel.
