Charles B. Edwards was born 1869. In 1913 he was hired by Westinghouse Machine Company and in 1914, the Edwards family moved to England, where he was probably still employed by Westinghouse. Edwards returned to the United States in 1916 and by 1918, he was working mainly in New York, and the family moved to Forest Hills, Long Island and soon thereafter moved again to Haddonfield, New Jersey. Probably around the same time, he began working for New York Shipbuilding Co. in Camden. By 1932, Edwards was retired.
