1.  First-hand knowledge:  Lavernia (THOMPSON) JOSEPH was my great-aunt, whom I knew and loved as "Auntie Lou."  I'm too young to have any memory of Charles, but I'm told he was very handsome and personable quite the "ladies' man."

2.  Marriage Record:

3a.  1900 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find and I really looked.  I can't find any of his siblings, either, except his youngest sister, Hilda, who is still living with their parents.

3b.  1900 Census Index/Images (online at Genealogy.com):  can't find, and I scanned all index entries beginning Ja, Jo, or Ju, for anything likely.
