Charles Lavern Allum
Birth: Jan. 9, 1898
Des Moines
Polk County
Iowa, USA
Death: May 5, 1973
Rock Island
Rock Island County
Illinois, USA

Son of Louis Rex Allum, 1878-1908, and Lake Winona Matthews, 1879-1941, Charles was cared for by his paternal grandmother Elizabeth (Baker) Matthews, and his uncle, John Hamilton Wade Matthews, in Appanoose County, Iowa. Perhaps because his Uncle John was at one time a railroad employee so, too, was Charles (employed by the Rock Island Lines). Later he was co-owner of K & A Truck Lines, Bettendorf, Iowa. In 1918, Charles married Rosetta "Rose" McLaughlin, 1892-1957, and had one daughter, Dorothy, and one son, Jack.
