Friday's Photo: Charles Giddens - Four Years Old

Charles William Giddens at age four.

Charles William Giddens, my grandmother's brother, was my Great Uncle Charlie. He was born on December 2, 1892 in Crewe, Virginia, but by 1896 was living with his family in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. At the time of this photo, his father, Charles A. Giddens, was working as a laborer and the family lived at 182 West Mercer Street. 

This photo was taken at Greisamer Studios in Phillipsburg. Charles had siblings Elizabeth, Florence, Edith, Warren, Georgie, and John; however, this is the only childhood photograph that I have seen from this family. 

I wrote about Uncle Charlie last year, at this time, as he made national news when loading dynamite into a cannon. Read Monday's News: Dynamite to find out more about this story. 

Uncle Charlie served in both WWI (in the Army) and WWII (in the Navy). Read 
Friday's Photo: Honoring Those Who Served, to find out more about his military career.
