      BIOGRAPHY:
      1. Mentioned in father's will per copy of partial probate record in my possession. It appears to be the last page of three pages and is marked "#269 Charles H.H." on the bottom of the page. What I have says:
      "...described Real and Personal property shall become the property of our children my sons and daughters and be Equally divided barween them namely, Lucy E. Hales, Mary Ann Hales Brown, James L. Hales, Charles Alma Hales, Caroline E. Hales Woodward, Franklin H. Hales, Hormon B. Hales, Edward M. Hales, Joseph M. Hales, Richard S. Hales, Sarah J. Hales, Hannah P. Hales and Daniel W. Hales.
      Fifthly, I hereby direct and order that the water rights applied upon the respective pieces of land heretofore, shall continue respectively as herein devised and bequeathed.
      Lastly, I hereby appoint my wife Julia Ann Hales the Executrix of this my last Will and Testament.
      In Witness whereof I have herenunto set my hand and seal this 22d Day of June A.D. 1889.
      The foregoing instrument consisting of three pages was... [witnessed and noted with Charles residing at at Spanish Fork, Utah Co., Utah Territory]."

      BIRTH:
      1. Date and place per obituary is 13 Aug 1870 at Spanish Fork. Live endowment and live marriage sealing use 13 Aug 1869 at Spanish Fork. All obituaries consistently say 13 Aug 1870. 1900 census says Jun 1869. An 1869 date seems more consistent to proper ordering of children. I use the temple dates since Harmon probably provided them himself.

      MARRIAGE:
      1. Date and place per obituary.
