    According to ONE WORLD TREE at Ancestry.com
    Charles died on March 30, 1946 in Salem, Marion County, OR. He married Frances Sowers Reid on November 6, 1895. Three children were Walker Reid, Margaret Mary, Byron Jordan. Charles lived his boyhood on the farm and then became interested in the river boats that plied their way up and down the Williamette River. Soon he was a river-boat engineer and spent many years as one of the most able and colorful men on the river. When his son Byron grew older, he too learned the ways of the Williamette River.
