Charles Wellman Flaugh was the first child born to first cousins Ernest Flaugh and Effie Beige Flaugh after their marriage at Chama, NM. We are still not certain why he was born on the far southern border of Arizona at Douglas when their nominal home was near Pagosa Springs, CO. After the birth of two more daughters, Ruth and Vera, the family decided to move from Colorado back to Pennsylvania where Ernest and Effie had both been born. In about 1917 when Charles was 10, the family moved back east to Meadville, PA. His father was initially a locomotive fireman. In 1922, they moved to Cambridge Springs, PA where Ernest purchased a drayage or trucking company. On 20 Mar 1931 Charles married Marian Louise Sherlock. A year and a half later, Ernest Flaugh died suddenly in a trucking accident in eastern Pennsylvania.

Charles and Marian had two children, Drucella Ann born in 1933 and Richard Charles born in 1936. The family lived much of their lives together on Arch Street in Meadville, PA adjacent to Effie Flaugh, Charles' mother. Charles was employed by the American Viscose Company in Meadville. Charles enjoyed sports and often played volleyball at the YMCA behind their house.

Charles Flaugh died 24 Dec 1994 in Meadville after a short illness. He was 88. Charles' body was cremated and the cremains were spred by the funeral home staff "on his favorite trout streams."

Charles' wife, Marian, left Arch Street, Meadville to live with her daughter, Dru Liebler in Sarasota, FL after Charles's death. Marian died in Sarasota on 1 Jan 2003.
She was cremated and her ashes were scattered at sea off South Lado Beach Park, FL.
