Year of birth is given from son Ernest's repatriation papers. Census records show that the year of birth is probably 1825 or 1826. Death records state that he is 72 years old; which makes the 1825 or 1826 year more likely.

Son Ernest's papers also state that Charles was born in New Orleans. His obituary gives the place of birth as Matanzas, Cuba. Census records are not consistant giving both Cuba and Louisiana in varying years.

Attended St Louis University in Missouri.

Bookkeeper and accountant. Eventually formed own business with a partner dealing in real estate, land transfers and mortgages.

Married twice.

First wife was Augustine Mathilde Ramos and had six children.

Second wife was Josephine Adele de Liveaudais and had six children.

In some records the last name is recorded as "de Lafitte".
