Stone of the construction of his fathers house on Currier Road which the Stone family moved into on 1-1-15. Othniel. R. Merritt had been the lead carpenter and Charles and perhaps other brothers worked with him.) Later Charles was involved in the carpentry business on his own and with his sons. Charles father having died when he was 5, and Charles only had four years of schooling himself. It was a source of great pride to him that all his children were high school graduates.      Charles married Mary Grace Findlen in 1915 and four daughters were born to them in Fort Fairfield.
