Margaret and Charles Smith and Children

Charles was a member of Co. D 102nd N.Y. Infantry Volunteers.

Charles states that at the outset of the Civil War, he was “determined to enlist” and made “several attempts to do so” but was underage. He did not have his mother’s permission to enlist and she threatened to make him be discharged if he did so. In order to not be discovered by his mother, who he says would be searching for someone named Charles E. Smith, he enlisted with his brother, James, on 4 February 1862 under the name Charles McGowan. He stayed enlisted under that name until 1865.

Charles was captured at Black River, NC on 16 Mar 1865. He was brought from Smithfield, NC to Richmond, VA 23 Mar 1865 and was in the Alexandria, VA Prison until 26 March 1865. He rejoined his Company 27 Mar 1865 and was sent to Camp Parole, MD. He was furloughed for 30 days on 2 April 1865. He returned to his Company on 3 May 1865 in New York City and sent to Camp Distribution in Alexandria, VA where he was mustered out on 21 July 1865.

Charles’ obituary says that he was a member of Green’s brigade, 12th corps at the battle of Gettysburg and was at Culps’ Hill during that conflict. Later he was with Sherman during the march to the sea through Georgia.

According to a signed “Claimant’s Affidavit” Charles says that his father was George F. Smith and his mother was Jane Smith. Previous to marrying Mr. Smith, Jane was married to a Mr. McGowan. She had three children with him, Mary, James and John McGowan. George Smith died “during my (Charles’) infancy”. He states that while in school he was often called Charles McGowan because of his siblings.

Prior to the war, his mother lived on West Fourth Street in New York City. Charles lived with his employer, Sydney Mount, on Hester St. in NYC. His employer was a “pen and pencil case worker” with a shop on Chatham Square in NYC. Charles entered into apprenticeship with him in 1859. Charles is not listed with Sydney in the 1860 Census.

Charles is listed as living in Brooklyn, NY until 1868, Meriden, CT until 1871, Wallingford, CT until 1882, Hartford, CT until 1887 and finally Wallingford, CT again until his death.

On May 6, 1882 a newspaper article mentions that Charles is leaving his position at Simpson, Hall and Miller, where he worked for 13 years, to take a more responsible position with Hartford Britannia Co.

In 1894, Charles owned a building in Wallingford, CT that housed a saloon run by two Morrison brothers. One night in September of that year Charles was in a fist fight with the Morrison brothers. The newspaper said that Charles was in “ill health” and that the Morrison’s beat him badly. Charles’ father in law, Thomas Wrinn, went down to the saloon and got in a fight with the Morrisons. They beat him badly and he went home. He later died of his injuries and the Morrisons were charged with manslaughter but the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence.
Charles was able to return to work on September 25.

In March 1895, Charles was appointed as a Justice of the Peace.

In 1900, Charles was elected Chairperson of the local Democratic caucus. He was active in the Democratic party throughout the 1890s.

In 1910 Charles and Margaret lived with daughter Jen and her family in Wallingford.

Cause of death was Bright’s Disease. Charles’ death record incorrectly lists his father as “Terrence Smith”.
Pallbearers were John, Joseph and P. McGowan all of New York City, James C. Wrinn, W.S. Fogarty and William F. Wrynn. Flower bearers were Robert Wrinn, Michael Luby, Frank Brown, John McCormick, John Gannon, Gerald McKeon, Arthur Roberge, Thomas Carroll and Charles Wrinn.
