Charles or Chas as he signed all his paperwork, was born in Minniapolis, Minnesota. He moved to Canada in the early 1880's to work on the railroad. On November 2, 1885 he joined the North West Mounted Police in Ottawa at a pay rate of seventy cents a day. He was described as 5 foot 11 inches tall, 168 pounds, blonde hair, blue eyes with good feet "a good man for the force".
He was stationed in Maple Creek, Northwest Territories (now Saskatchewan) and Stone Pile Creek, Northwest Territories (now Alberta). He left the force on November 1, 1890 to become a trapper.
In April of 1896 person or persons unknown entered his cabin near Sounding Lake (Alberta) and found the occupant deceased. They left a note in his cabin saying they had buried him next to the building.
