  • Notes 
    • 013-05-2950 SS# Born in Augusta?

      Charles' mother was divorced by his father, and he remarried very shortlyafterwards. Apparently Charles B. sided more with his mother and he andhis father never got on very well after that. His mother died in just afew years and lived within a block or two of the father and the new Mrs.Poor.

      Rena seemed to be very well liked by many, despite these hard feelings.
