Charles Francis (31 July 1879 - 25 July 1953) born in Calhoun county, Ala was the oldest son of James Marcus L. & Mary Molly Howard. Charles had 8 other siblings, 5 sisters and 3 brothers (includes Jody).  

There was a large discrepacy in ages between the oldest and the youngest sibling. Charles probably did not have much interaction with his younger brother and sisters. Consider that in 1903, when he was 24 years old, his sister, Lorena was born (24th July), only 4 months later, he married (29th Nov) Beulah Vester Dulaney.

Charles died on 25th July 1953 and Beulah in 1973. They are buried in the Edgemont Cemetery in Anniston, Ala.
