From the Chicago Daily News January 28, 1920 page 30; Youngberg – Charles J., aged 58 years. Jan. 26 at home, 1421 E 75th st., beloved husband of Freda Youngberg, fond father of Myrtle Elvira and Lawrence Youngberg. Funeral Thursday Jan. 29 at 2:30 p.m. from late home to Swedish Mission Church, 74th st and Cottage Grove av., at 3 p.m.: interment Oakwoods. For information phone Stewart 77.

Charles Youngberg married my 2nd great-grandfather’s sister Frida Katrina Tolf on the 7th of May 1887 in Batavia, Kane, Illinois.

At the time of his death, Charles and Frida lived with their daughter Myrtle, her husband Joseph Friend and their son Norman [1]. The census shows that Charles was still working as a carpenter in a “car shop”. The car in this instance is a Pullman train car. Charles had worked at the Pullman company since November of 1883, more than 35 years.
