  • Notes 
    • Grandfather's (Charles) story that his mother told him that she was carrying (pregnant) him when she went down to see Lincoln's funeral train pass on it's way to Springfield. If this story is true Charles could not have been born on April 22,1865, because the funeral train left Washington on April 20, passed through Indianapolis on April 30, and arrived at Springfield on May 3, 1865.

      Also Charles could not have been born in April 1865, if his brother Henry was born December 22, 1864.

      According to Maybell Cooper's notes, written at Milford in 1942, the old bible did not give any record of Henry, nor month of Charles's birth ( 1865 given as Charles birthyear ). Also Maybell noted " There was a dispute between Henry and Charles - Charles remembered from what Mother told him, but on what Henry based his birthday is not known. It is logical that the bible may have been at Milford because Fred owned a large farm there and lived at the hotel ( site of the family picture ). It was frequently the location of family meetings.
