To The Memory Of
Charles A
Beloved Husband of
Marion E. Freedman
Born Dec 9 1865
Died March 9, 1908

Charles was a theater manager who had made his fortune during the Klondike gold rush. When he and his wife came home from the theater on the evening of March 9, 1908, they noticed a prowler in the pantry. Charles and the burglar struggled before the intruder pressed a rusty .38 revolver to the left side of Charles’ chest and pulled the trigger. Bleeding, Charles chased the attacker out of the house. He then fell, mortally wounded. Before he died he said; “Marion, I’m shot, I’m done for.”
