Charlie was born about 1845, since Hannah Skavlem informs us that he was about 50 years old in 1895. Since she identifies him as the brother of Henry, he was the son of Four Deer Decorah and Four Deer Queen of the Lodge.
1895 — Hannah Skavlem tells us, "Until within the last few years a small band of (Winnebago) from the northern part of the state have wintered here, but in the spring of 1895 they broke up camp for the last time and Koshkonong knows them no more. Their camp or village numbered five lodges and their band was composed of the members of three separate families. These were Charlie Decorah and his squaw. Charlie was about 50 years old, and the "medicine man" Moses Decorah, squaw and three papooses; Henry Decorah and squaw. Henry was the learned man of the party, and could read and write English fairly well; Charlie Green and squaw, and War Club, squaw and one papoose."
