Charles was born on a farm near Chat, Wisconsin (a town that no longer exists) about 12 miles north of Merrill. He moved from Wisconsin to the Chicago, Illinois area where he married Myrtle Gray. [According to family members, Charles and Myrtle had no children of their own; however, they took in a small girl and planned to adopt her. Myrtle abandoned them and Charles continued to attempt adoption; however, he was forced to return the child. Shortly thereafter he moved to Iowa.] He married Mary (Minnie) Belle Linn June 11, 1913 in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska. They divorced on 16 March 1949 in Council Bluffs, IA. Charles and Minnie had six children (Evelyn, Harold, Gerald, Lloyd, Donald and Phyllis). Charles later married Florence M. (nee Carlson), widow of Raymond F. Cervenka, Senior. The youngest child, Phyllis Jean "Peg" (Rolfe) Eyberg, Roselli, Radspinner, died in Jamestown, New York and was cremated there without burial.
