Warren: Dec 21, 1879 Charles Redfern Maxfield male white 2d, b. Warren to Charles S. and Sarah H. Maxfield of Warren. He trader b. Bristol; she b. Bristol.The 1900 census (634:20B) reported Charles R. Maxfield, a lodger, living on Holman Street, Attleboro, Massachusetts, working as a salesman in a music store.
Charles R. Maxfield probably married MARION B. BOWEN about 1904/5. They probably had two children. However, in the census records for 1910, 1920, and 1930, they do not appear in the same household. I infer the marriage from the names and ages of the children as they appear in census records, as follows:
The 1910 census (1436:1:190B) reported Marion Maxfield living at 19 Child Street, Warren, RI:
|Maxfield, Stanley Charles R.||son||M||W||3||S||RI||RI||RI||none|
|Bowen, Elizabeth S.||mother||F||W||60||W||RI||RI||RI||none|
According to this record, Marion had two children, both living, and had been married five years. Perhaps the census taker confused two children into one. Elizabeth had only one child; Hannah had two children, only one still living.
The 1920 census (1670:37B) reported Marion and son Stanley at 19 Child Street, Warren:
|Maxfield, Marion B.||daughter||F||W||33||M||RI||RI||RI||librarian
|Maxfield, Stanley B.||grandson||M||W||18||S||RI||RI||RI||none|
Perhaps I have misread Stanley's age and it should be 13. Charles was reported as a widower in the 1920 census (1670:1A). He and his son Charles were living with his father at Warren. Charles Redfern Maxfield was manager of an ice cream parlor.
The 1930 census (2169:14B) reported Charles, his mother Sarah, and his son Charles, living on North Road, on the island town of Jamestown, Rhode Island.
|Maxfield, Charles R.||head||M||W||50||Wd||RI||RI||RI||ice cream truck
|Maxfield, Charles R., Jr.||son||M||W||24||S||RI||RI||RI||poultry|
Charles R. Maxfield died at Pinellas County, Florida, in 1949 (FL D).
Charles Redfern Maxfield and his wife Marion had the following children:
