He married, 1859 or 1860 Laura Acenath Maxfield.[3][4] She was born 16 Sep 1836, Chester, VT,[5] and died 22 Dec 1893,[6] New Westminster, BC.

They lived in Troy for several years, while Charles was working as a lawyer.

By 1880 he is living in Saint Louis, where he is listed variously as a lawyer and an editor.[7][8]

By 1890, we find Charles and his son, Charles Francis, both living in Courtenay,B.C. Charles M. started a newspaper there, and apparently started going by the name "Mayo" (his middle name).It was the Courtenay Weekly News.[9]
