Charles O. Lash was born in Union County, KY in 1850's. Parents David Van Meter Lash and Amanda Alsop Barron. His siblings were A. H. Lash, William David Lash, half brothers Charles Lash and Robert Lash, and half sister Sarah Tabitha Lash. The half siblings were born in Bolivar Country, MS. Their mother was Permelia Wilson Lash. I do not know what happen to him after he was born. Did he die before David Van Meter Lash left Kentucky about 1861. Found him on the 1860 Census in Kentucky. Found William David Lash on the 1870 Census for Bolivar County, MS. Charles O. Lash and A. H. (Herman) Lash have slipped thru the cracks. Looks like their mother, Amanda, died before 1860 and she was not listed on 1860 Census for Union County, Kentucky.
