Notes:  Charles G. Hildebrand was born 17 Nov 1881 in Alhambra, California. His parents were Charles Hildebrand and Wilhelmina Staheli.  He was their only son, and grew up with seven sisters.  The entire family was musical, and Charles was no exception.  He played the violin, and participated in a recital given by the pupils of his sister Julia.
In the 1900 U.S. census, at the age of 18 years, Charles was working as a tower man, presumably for the local electric company.  He married Alice L. Dennis on 30 Sep 1918 in Santa Ana, Orange, California.  They are found in the 1916 voter registration rolls, registered as Republican.  Their residence was in a boarding house located at 826 E. 7th Street in Los Angeles City.  When he registered for the World War Draft in 1918, he was described as being of medium height, stout build, with gray eyes and light hair.  He was working for the Southern Pacific Railroad.  The 1920 U.S. census lists his occupation as signal supervisor for the railroad.

By 1924, Charles and Alice had moved to 842 Las Palmas Avenue, Los Angeles.  The 1930 USA census reports that they owned their home, which was worth $4,500. and had a radio.  Charles was still a signal supervisor.  In the 1940 U.S. census, the house was valued at $3,000.  Charles was a signalman for the railroad, and earned $2,820. in the prior year.  He had completed elementary school, 8th grade.

The 1944 Register of Voters shows that the couple had moved to 920 S. Olive Avenue, sometime after 1942.  Charles died 8 Aug 1944, survived by his wife and all seven of his sisters.  His services were held 11 Aug 1944 at 11 a.m. at Pierce Brothers on West Washington, Los Angeles.  He is buried in the San Gabriel Cemetery, San Gabriel, California, with his wife Alice.
