Charles Powell

above 1925 The Arrow Yearbook Cape Charles Virginia

Charles Powell (1907-1996) was born in Delmar to John Henry and Lillie Dale Muse Powell. John Henry worked for the railroad in Delmar and about 1922 was transferred to Cape Charles with his wife and seven children; John Henry, Jr,  Charles, James Murdoch,  Arthur, Robert, Virginia, and Irvine.

I have no idea if the nickname "Ching" followed him through life.

about 1931 John Henry was transferred back to Delmar. Charles managed a gas station in Delmar before going in the Army Air Force in World war Two.  After he got out of the service he was a clerk for the railroad. He died at age 90 in 1996.
