Charles Auble was born on 31 October 1849, probably in Newton, Sussex County, New Jersey. He moved to Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana with his family in about 1865, and then moved to Chicago, Illinois before 1894.

 

While in Chicago, he met his future wife, Georgianna Kemp (usually called Georgia), and romanced her with poems and flowers. They married on 19 June 1898 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. On the marriage record, Charles was listed as a painter residing in Chicago, born in New Jersey, with parents named D. Auble and S.G. Knapp. Georgia Kemp was listed as born in Ontario, to parents J.H. Kemp and M. Sovereen (Milwaukee County (Wisconsin) Register of Marriages, Volume 30, 1837-1907, FHL Microfilm 1,292,310).

 

In the 1900 U.S. census, the family lived at 515 West Adams Street in Chicago (1900 United States Census, Population Schedule, Cook County, Illinois, Chicago, ED 376, Page 264, Sheet 8B, dwelling #75, family #112, line 77, National Archives Microfilm Series T623, Roll 257). The family included:

In the 1910 Chicago City Directory, Charles Auble, a painter, lived at 611 West 76th Street in Chicago.

 

In the 1910 U.S. census, the Charles Auble family resided at 611 West 76th Street in the 32nd Ward of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois (1910 United States Census, Population Schedule, Cook County, Illinois, Chicago, Ward 32, ED 1391, Page ???, Sheet 2B, dwelling #28, family #33, National Archives Microfilm Series T624, Roll 278).

* Emily Auble -- daughter, female, white, age 10, single, born IL, father born NJ, mother born Canada English, attended school

 

The family moved to San Diego, California in about 1911, probably to be near Georgia's brothers, James and Franklin. Charles was a painter and interior decorator, and a picture of the home in San Diego at 767 14th Street has a sign outside that reads "Painting" and "Decorating". He used the basement of the house as his studio.

 

Charles suffered a fall three months before his death, and died of cystitis caused by a ruptured gall bladder from the fall.

 

Charles was a man who liked strong drink, and apparently lied about his age throughout his marriage (e.g., he is listed as age 35 in the 1900 U.S. census, age 54 in the 1910 U.S. census, and as age 61 on his death certificate in 1916). In his later years, he was portly, bald, and wore a mustache.

 

His obituary (San Diego Union, March 25, 1916) reads:

 

"Charles Auble, Old Time Painter, Dead.

 

"Departed Brother Leaves Widow and Daughter to Mourn Departure - Funeral Will Be Saturday Afternoon.

 

"Charles Auble, an old time member of the Painters' Union, died Thursday night at his home, 767 Fourteenth Street. He leaves a widow, Georgia, one daughter, Emily, to mourn his departure.

 

"Brother Auble has been a member of the Painters union for many years, coming to San Diego from Chicago about five years ago, and immediately affiliating with local No. 333 in San Diego.

 

"Funeral services will be held at the Bradley & Woolman chapel at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon, interment being in Greenwood Cemetery. All members of Painters' union and friends are requested to be present."

 

An article in the San Diego Union, dated about April 3, 1916, noted that the Painters Union No. 333 adopted a resolution of condolence in memory of "Charles Aubell," an old and honored member.

 

The Free Mason's Cemetery Company granted Georgia K. Auble grave number 15 in lot number 21 in Division S of the Masonic Cemetery for $25. The unmarked grave is now in the bounds of Mount Hope Cemetery in San Diego.
