Yes the Charles you're refering to was the son of August & Mary. August & Mary are my Great uncle & aunt. So I don't know a lot about this side of the family. Here's what I do know:

August shows up in the St. Louis directoriesin 1886 along with his father (Anthony) and brother (Herman). His parents were Anthony and Christina Harms who are both buried at Gatewood Gardens in south St. Louis. August and Mary are also buried at Gatewood Gardens, which was called New Pickers until recently. I'm still trying to figure out exactly when they arrived in the US and where in Germany they're from.

Charles was born in 1896, 5th of 6 children. He's in the 1900 census with August & Mary. After they passed away, he lived with his grandmother, Christina. Charles, Lena, & Hanna (the 3 youngest) are all in the 1910 census with Maria (Christina) Harms.

I've got a Charles Harms who died on Jan. 11, 1927. He's also buried at Gatewood Gardens in the Harms family plot. I'm pretty sure it's the same Charles.
