In a life that was prolonged beyond the allotted period of existence, Mr. Charles won and retained the respect of acquaintances and associates. It was his privilege to witnes the development of our nation during the most eventful era of its history. His earlier recollections were associated with the country as an infant republic, its possibilities unknown, its destiny unforeseen. When he was an old man, and shut off largely from intercourse with others through deafness and failing sight, he was wont to dwell upon events connected with the far-distant past, and used to tell his children how, as a boy, he had shaken hands with George Washington, who had told him to be “a good boy”, and had hoped God's blessing would rest upon him.


The life of Andrew Charles began in County Tyrone, Ireland, May 6, 1782, and closed in Strasburg, Lancaster county, April 4, 1873, his body being laid to rest in the Strasburg cemetery in the midst of surroundings so familiar to him. His parents, William and Jane (Charles) Charles, were natives of Ireland, the former being a farmer all through his active life. In the family were the following children, all now deceased: John; Andrew; Hannah; Mrs. Charles Earlie, of Ireland; Catherine, Mrs. Wilson, who died in Virginia; and Mrs. Jane Hayes, of Pittsburg, Pa. While the family were Irish-born, they were of English extraction, and the genealogy is traced back to three brothers, of whom one left England for Ireland, another went to Scotland, and the third settled in Germany.


Accompanied by a brother and two sisters, Andrew Charles came to the United States in 1794 and settled in Philadelphia, where he soon began an apprenticeship to the cabinet-maker's trade. Owing to an epidemic of yellow fever when he was twenty-one years of age, he left his home city and afterward made his borne in Lancaster for a time, thence going to Lititz, where he followed his trade a few years. A later location was at Strasburg, where he not only followed his trade but also built up an important business in the sale of furniture and under- taker's supplies. For forty years he suffered the inconvenience of deafness, but prosecuted his work with diligence, notwithstanding this affliction. However, when finally blindness came to him five years prior to his death, he relinquished his connection with business. During his younger years he was an active citizen, an enthusiastic worker in the Democratic party, and for many times served both as burgess and as a member of the borough council. In religion he adhered to the Episcopal doctrines, and fraternally was connected with the Masons.


Before the days of railroads, Mr. Charles rode on horseback to Lancaster to be married and there the ceremony was performed which united him with Margaret Ferguson. They became the parents of the following named children: Robert F., deceased; Jane A., Mrs. Henry Hunter, deceased; Harriet, who was born in Strasburg, Aug. 18, 1813, and now makes her home in Lancaster; William, who died while in the army; John, who died in infancy; Amanda, Mrs. Charles Mellinger, of Columbia, Pa.; Margaret, who was born June 15, 1823, in Strasburg, and now resides with her sister Harriet in Lancaster; John A., who married Anna E. Bart, and is now deceased; and Adeline, who died in girlhood.
In I847 Miss Harriet Charles opened a millinery store in Strasburg, and this she conducted until 1882, when she and her sister removed to Columbia to make their home with a married sister, but after seventeen months they removed to their present home in Lancaster. Although her father accumulated little, Miss Charles was enabled to surround his old age with the comforts of life as a result of her own industrious efforts, and at the same time she accumulated sufficient to provide for herself and sister so that now, in their advancing years, they are comfortably and pleasantly situated. Their friends are many in the county where they have always lived.

The settlement of Dr. RICHARD CHARLES in Angelica in 1825 marked an era in the history of the medical profession in the county. He was so long, so generally and so favorably known by the many Alleganians to whom he became endeared by numberless acts of kindness, professionally and otherwise, that an extended sketch will be given. It is said that in hundreds of cases he made long journeys to visit families of poor pioneers, without the hope of fee or reward. His ears were never deaf to the appeals of the suffering, nor his eyes closed to the visible wants of his fellow men. For nearly half a century he was a successful practitioner, and an ornament to the profession. Had he been less liberal and kind hearted he might have amassed great wealth. His generous impulses prompted him to extend his aid and influence in support of those whom he deemed his friends and twice he was compelled to commence the world anew, his means becoming exhausted in the payment of demands not his own, for which he had become holden. It was a satisfaction to his friends to know that notwithstanding these reverses his declining years were blessed with a competence. He was one of the founders, always a communicant, and for a long time a vestryman and warden of St. Paul's Church at Angelica. His death left a great void in the ranks of the profession. "Dr. Richard CHARLES, M. D. * was a native of Belfast, Ireland, born May 24, 1800. He received his professional education at the medical departments of Dublin, Glasgow and New York City universities he took the degree of Doctor of Medicine at Glasgow, and his attendance at lectures in New York City was for the purpose of studying the idiom of disease in this country, as well as to acquire the practice adapted to their treatment. He had experience in hospital practice before coming to this country. He was surgeon of the vessel that brought him to Quebec in 1821. From Quebec he came to Buffalo, where he was taken sick with a protracted and dangerous fever, and, upon his recovery, he settled in Almond, and practiced in company with Dr. BURNHAM and afterwards with Dr. Asal E. DAVIDSON. After three years passed in these co-partnerships, he removed to Angelica in 1825 and took the practice of Dr. Southwick. He remained in Angelica until his death in 1863 at 63 years of age. From the superiority of his professional acquirements he gained a large and extended practice, often being called to Buffalo to treat difficult cases of disease, and as far east as Elmira and Bath and to other neighboring and distance places in Western New York. His superior education and professional skill was a generally acknowledged fact. In his addresses and manners he was a typical gentleman of the old school. He was a courageous and truthful practitioner, and had the admiration and confidence of his patients, as well as of the general public. He was a strong adherent of the code of ethics governing the moral conduct of his confreres to each other and to their patients, thereby maintaining a high standard for the scientific and philanthropic profession. He was a member of New York State Medical Society. He experienced the strong physique and determined purpose, he was equal to the hard labor and dangers besetting men in the period of primitive forests, when the road ways admitted of transportation on horseback only. He lived to see his adopted county of Allegany one of the foremost grazing counties in the state and an influential power in state and general politics, and several academies and a university of learning, dying at Angelica, April 24, 1863."
