1910 Frank married Anna Dick, dom Feb 8, 1910, Jamaica Plain.
1916 Charles working at Durgin & Hallahan, 485 E. Broadway, living at 29 Elmore (just down the street from the police station where Frank works)
1918 Charles marries Mary A Hallahan b. abt 1891(daughter or sister of Hallahan, Charles is in business with) dom. Jun 26, 1918. (Cert) She died Oct 2, 1918 of influenzia. (Cert) Calvary Cemetery
1919 Charles listed as US Army, still living at 29 Elmore. WWI has just ended and he does not go overseas.
1919 Police Strike in Boston and most of the police are fired /not re-hired after the strike. Frank and Charles start Durgin Bros., 664 Center, Jamaica Plain (J P), living at 56 Day, Roxbury
1922 Charles marries (2) Isabel Dick, dom Nov 12, 1922 (Cert), his sister -in-law. Frank married Anna Dick, dom Feb 8, 1910, Jamaica Plain.
1924 No record on Charles or Frank in the Boston City Directory
1925-6 Frank is listed living at 46 Creighton. No record of Charles. No death record for Charles or Isabel Dick in Boston City Records.
We think Charles died abt 1925. Where?

My grand-mother, Anna Virginia Durgin married Julian P. Crosby, Sr. (grand-father). My father, Julian P. Crosby, Jr. was born in 1920. I am named after Charles Rolland Durgin, her brother, so I think something happened to him that deserved to be remembered, hence, my name.
Hope this fills in some blanks for some people.
