Charles Benjamin 1864- This was Henry and Mary's 4th son. For most of Henry's diary, Charley was missing somewhere in the United States. Eventually, he turned up in Pennsylvania where he was working in a glass factory, and living with his wife Clara. He is buried in St. Jude'sCemetery in Oakville.

Some further information has been found in the U.S. census taken at Pittsburg. Apparently Charles went to the United States around 1894 or 1895. He is not found in the U.S. census in 1900 or 1910. In 1920 he is in Pittsburg and working at a glass factory. He has a wife Clara, but there is no evidence of children. By the time of the 1930 census, Charles is in the Allegheny County Jail. Clara is not to be found. Charles was not a young man at the time. His age is given as 65. When he might have returned to Canada is unknown.1
