Charles ran a mercantile business in Boston, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Natchez. He died in Cincinnati and the FOBES family genealogy gives his burial as Old South Cemetery in Windsor. Charles and Persis were the parents of two children: Elizabeth West Forbes who married William Moore and were Baptist missionaries to Burma (they are buried next to Persis in Middleton, OH), and Charles M. Forbes who was a dentist and is buried in Judsonia Arkansas. SOURCES: FOBES Family History by Lawrence G. Fobes 1991, Cheney Genealogy by Charles Henry Pope 1897.
