Charles Carman, probably Matawan's oldest citizen, died Sunday evening, Apr 1, 1945 at his home at the corner of Jackson and Church Streets at the age of 92 years. He was born in Dutchess County, New York, the son of John J. Carman and Mary S. Bowen, descending from pre-Revolutionary ancestry.

His entire business career was spent in the brick industry, fist at Peekskill, NY, where he was engaged in its manufacture until 1902 when he joined the Cliffwood Brick Company here and his family took up residence in Matawan. He retired about 20 years ago.

He was a member of Independent Order of Odd Fellow for over 50 years, keeping his affiliation in Peekskill where he was especially honored on that occasion. He was also a member of the Masonic Order with membership in Matawan Lodge No. 192.

His wife, Catherine Avery, predeceased him by 15 years. He is survived by two daughters -- Miss Mary Grace, with whom he lived, and Mrs. Walter V. Patton, Church St, Matawan; and two granddaughters, children of his deceased daughter, Anne White.

Services conducted from his home with the First Methodist church officiating. Interment in the family vault at Rose Hill Cemetery.
