Rev Charles Wesley Launius
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 10, 1811
Muddy Creek
Forsyth County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Dec. 3, 1885
Holly Springs
Dallas County
Arkansas, USA

Charles Launius married Elizabeth Russel in Stokes County, North Carolina on August 2, 1834. They had the following children: James Launius, Wesley Launius, Elizabeth Launius, Unknown Launius, Thomas Launius, Allen Roberson Launius, Charles Emory Launius.

Charles was the son of Jacob Christian Lanius and Christina Kroehn and had two brothers and five sisters.

Charles was born in the community of Hope, which was the first English speaking Moravian settlement in the Wachovia tract in what was then Stokes County, North Carolina. Hope is not listed on so I picked the next closest place "Muddy Creek" located just outside Winston-Salem in current day Forsyth County, North Carolina.
