Charles Washington "Charlie" TAYLOR [Parents] [scrapbook] 1, 2, 3 was born 4 on 13 Mar 1876 5 in Hamburg, Ashley Co., Arkansas. He died 4 on 2 Feb 1941 6 in Ashley Co., Arkansas 6. He was buried 7 in Promised Land Cemetery, Ashley Co., Arkansas. Charlie married 4 Vada Lou GUICE "Vada" on 11 Feb 1906 8 in Bradley Co., Arkansas 8.

   Some have attributed an earlier marriage of Charles to an Ethel Parkhill on 2 October 1899, in Ashley Co., Arkansas (Arkansas Marriage Records).  However, in the 1900 census Charles is listed as single (without the widowed designation) in the household of his parents.  Another interesting note is that the 1910 census indicates it is his second marriage, so perhaps there was a brief marriage of less than one year to Ethel Parkhill.
   From Charlie's 1917 WW I registration card, he is noted as being "short and stout" with blue eyes and dark hair.  He is residing in Warren, Bradley County, Arkansas, at this time and is employed as "Cooking and Trucking" (not very legible) at the "South Lumber Co.".
-1910:  residing in Ouachita TS, Bradley County, Arkansas.  Charlie is the keeper of a boarding house.
-1920:  residing in River TS, Bradley County, Arkansas.  Charlie is employed in a lumber campe.
-1930:  Charles and Vada reside in Elon Township, Ashley Co., Arkansas where they run a boarding house.
-1940:  residing in Hamburg, Arkansas.
