Notes:  Charles Morrow was born 19 Sep 1891 in La Riviére, Lisgar, Manitoba.  He was the sixth child of William Morrow and Isabella Shaw.  His father was of Irish descent, born in Quebec, and his mother of Scotish descent, born in Ontario.  The family was Presbyterian.  His older siblings were Katie, born in 1881, William James in 1883 (who probably died young), William Henry in 1885, Walter James in 1887, and Annie in 1889.  His younger siblings were Susanna, born in 1895, and John Wilfred in 1900.  His father was a farmer, and in 1901 through 1911, Charles is found living on the family farm in Lisgar, Manitoba.

In 1916, Charles and his older brother, William Henry, were farming a separate farm in the Lisgar district.  Charles served in the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Forces in the First World War.  On 1 Feb 1918 he signed an Attestation Paper, allowing him to remain in the military for the purpose of receiving medical treatment for disabilities caused in the service.  The nature of the disability was Pleurisy, which may have been caused by mustard gas.  At the time of signing the Attestation, Charles was still single, and living at 121 Gage Street in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Charles Morrow married Eva Myrtle Detwiller, probably in Manitoba, where they both were born and grew up.  They were married in 1919 or thereafter.  At some time they moved to British Columbia.  They had at least one son, W.J. Morrow.  Charles last occupation was as a transit company operator, ending in 1948.  His address at time of death was 2706 Telford Street, Burnaby, British Columbia.  His son lived at 2607 Telford Street, South Burnaby.

Charles died 25 Apr 1953 in Shaughnessy Hospital, Vancouver.  He had pyelonephritis for years, but cause of death was accute obstructive bronchitis and tracheitis.  He was buried 30 Apr 1953 in the Ocean View Burial Park, Burnaby, British Columbia.  His wife Eva Myrtle died 15 Nov 1975 in Burnaby, and is also buried in Ocean View Burial Park.
