It appears he could be a relative, but I'm not positive. I did find Charles' family on the 1850 census for Carroll County. His parents are John and Catherine. I assume John died between 1850 and 1860 as I find the mother and children listed but not him, in 1860. The siblings are:
The first two were born in Germany and the rest were born in Maryland. After that time, I have kept track of Charles, but I can't find the rest of the family. I am assuming they moved west as he takes his first wife's children to Preble County and leaves them there, after he lives there for awhile.
I have found bits and pieces, but would sure like to find the rest of the family.
