Charles James Stochl


Odd Harmony in Their Birth-Dates

Odd is the harmony of birthdates in the family annals of Mr. and Mrs. James Stochl, the Solonites, whose son, Charles James Stochl, died in service just five years ago yesterday, on October 11, 1918, one month before the glad tiding of the Armistice came to the brave boy. Mrs. Stochl made application during the current week for the bonus that Charlie earned, ere his gold star came to him. Two of the Stochl boys, were born on November 20th, and two of the girls, on Nov. 22nd. These were four of twelve children, ten of whom survive.
