Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 8, 1864
Death: May 29, 1924

June 4, 1880 census: laboring at mines four months
1900 census: he was living with his father and was a day laborer. He was still single.

Charles M. Kiehl was confirmed in the St. James English Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ashland on May 28, 1882. His brothers George E. Kiehl and John A. Kiehl were also confirmed on that date.

1905-1906 Ashland City Directory: "Charles Kiehl, lab. 3."

Charles is reported as living in Ashland on his father's April 1917 death certificate and on his brother's November 1923 death certificate.

1920 Census: Living at 814 Chestnut St., Ashland, Pa. Working at the Mines.

Charles is buried at St. Joseph's/St. Mauritius Cemetery located in Ashland just off 25th Street at the top of town. It is a clean and orderly cemetery situated in an open meadow. His grave is found at the end of the first row at the bottom of the hill. Tombstone:

1864 Charles M. 1924
1867 Mary E. 1950

1906 Bert J. 1971
1907 Eleanor E. 1979

Charles' niece Marion Bauchop (1912 - 2006) remembered that Charles got married late in life. His wife was "very religious" and was somehow related to Cardinal Dougherty and he converted to Catholicism when he married her. Cousin Bert J. Johnson (1935 - 2015) explained the connection. Cardinal Dennis Joseph Dougherty's sister Catherine married a Patrick McCormick. This couple had a son J. Carroll McCormick who became a Catholic bishop in Philadelphia. The couple also had a daughter Mary who married Charles M. Kiehl. So Bishop J. Carroll McCormick was Charles M. Kiehl's brother-in-law and Cardinal Dennis Joseph Dougherty was Charles E. Kiehl's uncle-in-law.

1930 census: Charles Kiehl [Jr.], 24, son, living with Mary Kiehl, 55, mother, and sister Elenore.
