Living in New Bedford when his will was probated.

CONFLICT: The death date of 9 Aug 1846 in Westport, Bristol, Massachusetts came from [New England Historic Genealogical Society, Massachusetts, Westport, Vital records of, to the year 1850, Boston : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1918, p. 295, Family History Library, 35 North West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84150, USA, FHL 974.485/W1 V28v.] It is being disputed by Pat Cordeiro who wrote T.Mason on 1Mar2002 that "You can find this Charles and his family on the 1850 census Fall River, Bristol County. The Charles that died on the above date I believe was married to Ruth Sherman and is buried in William H. Gifford private lot, Blossom Road, North Westport. I have not been able to locate the place or the date of death for Charles and Lovisa."
