Charles W. August     

CHARLES W. AUGUST, carpenter, P.O. Evansburg, was born in Venango County, Penn., April 13, 1840, son of Benjamin and Susan (Barton) August, the former a native of Pennsylvania, the latter of New York State. They were the parents of nine children. Our subject, the second in this family, was born and reared on a farm. He states that during his residence in Warren County, and when but six years of age, he and a brother, two years his senior, started about half past 4 o’clock to go for the cows, but stopped on their way to play on some saw logs, a number of which commenced to roll down the hill, going over his brother and killing him instantly; the logs also caught our subject, holding him prisoner until 6 o’clock the next morning, when he managed to attract the attention of some neighbors by pushing his hat under a log, and was then released from his dangerous as well as uncomfortable position. Mr. August for some time followed lumbering, then learned the carpenter’s trade, in which he is still engaged. During the late war he served eighteen months in Company B, Twelfth Pennsylvania Cavalry. He was married, November 7, 1878, to Clara Weary, of Oil City, Penn., by whom he has two children: William Edward, born October 20, 1881, and Fred H., born May 10, 1884. Our subject and wife are members of the E.A.U., of which he is Secretary. He is also V.G. in the I.O.O.F.; in politics a Republican. Mrs. August is a member of the Daughters of Rebekah.
