  • Notes 
    • Charles was to get the home claim, but he became a bar owner in partnership with John Herreth. They bought the Knorr Bar.

      There was a terrible fire in Bridgewater in 1926. Charley and John did not rebuild the bar. Charley moved out to the claim that his folks lived on. No one liked working on the farm. Charley had never had to work so hard and the weather was hot and he was used to working inside. He soon got sick. His family talked him into moving back to Wisconsin. He made a trip to Barton and found a house, but Charley was never again well enough to work.

    Died:
