    Gender Male 
    Research Notes 1900 Census shows Charles Byrne giving his date of birth as Nov 1847. This is problematic, in that his father, George Byrne, supposedly died on Oct 2, 1844. On the 1910 Census, taken in April 1910, his age is listed as 67. This would make sense had he been born in 1842, and for the moment I’m going to assume there is an error in the reading of the 1900 census, and am theorizing he was born in Nov, 1842.

    Notes 
    • “Copper teakettles were manufactured in Santa Cruz in 1888. Cook stoves also were turned out. Partners in the hardware venture were Charles Henry Heath, who established a hardware store in Santa Cruz in 1874, and Charles Benjamin Byrne. Byrne was a former superintendent of Hihn Water Company. He and Heath set up their business next to the southwest corner of Pacific and Locust street.. [12]
