Charles is a cousin via my maternal grandmother. His wife Marian apparently remarried after his death (per her death certificate), but was buried next to him (per the cemetery’s posted records).

They had an unnamed son in 1939 who died at eight days, of erythroblastosis (which we now know is caused by Rh factor incompatibility). I don’t know where he is buried, as I can’t make out what’s scrawled on his death certificate.
