Charles Bevard was born at Muskegon and had seven brothers and sisters. He had a dog named Roudy. His jobs were taking care of horses and chopping wood.
He didn’t go to school but Charles was really good at fixing shoes. Charles was called a shoe cobbler and his shop was across from the school. He collected old coins and tools. Charles’ biggest historic events were the World Wars.
In Charles’ spare time he liked to work on gardens. Charles’ was married in Muskegon and was married for about fifty years to Addie. Charles’ had about five children and three died after they had the fire in their house. Charles’ best jobs were a shoe cobbler and picking mail up from the train.
One of Charles’ worst memories was when the children died. He traveled from upper Michigan to Detroit in lower Michigan.
