Son of Henry Bernard Feldhaus Jr. and Mary Ann Schneider
Born:     Lawrenceburg, TN on November 17, 1895
Died:     Columbia, TN in January, 1983
Charlie was a veteran of World War One. However, I never heard him talk about it and don't know where
he served. It is my understanding that he was gassed during the war.
Charlie's wife was Elizabeth Akin. She was born on Jun 9, 1902 and died on January 15, 1983. She grew up
in the small town of Culleoka, southeast of Columbia. She was a school teacher. They lived in a nice brick house
in Columbia just off the Columbia to Lawrenceburg highway. Charlie worked for the L&N railroad until he retired.
They had one daughter. Her name was Elizabeth Charles but everybody called her Libby. She
graduated from Vanderbilt and married a Chemical Engineer, Robert E. Scoles on 11 June 1960 in Columbia. They lived
in Kingsport, TN where he worked for Eastman Chemical. Libby died about 2011.
Charlie grew roses after he retired. He liked to start roses from cuttings and had good success doing that.
This picture of my dad, Lawrence Feldhaus, and his brother Charlie was taken about 1970.
Kathy Niedergeses sent me the below article which she copied from the
29 January 1919 issue of the Lawrenceburg Democrat Union.
It's a great find to be able to read this letter that Charlie wrote almost
100 years ago to his father from the midst of WWI in France.
