Born 2 July, 1856. Charlie grew up in California; he was 11 when the family moved to Oakland, 18 when he arrived in Argentina. Always of weak constitution, ill since 1870, he collapsed after attempting to lift a heavy pump part when on a routine 30 km. trip for supplies to Caņada de Gomez. He lay down to rest in the railroad station master's home and died there that day, 12 April, 1877, just 20 years old. He is buried at “La California”.
Sorry folks, not just yet. For now please see his summary on Wilhelm & Josephine’s “Family”.
