"Charles Gaume died last week at his home in Pasadena, Calif., aged sixty-five years. Mr. Gaume was born and raised in Louisville and left for the West about thirty-five years ago. About fifteen years ago Mr.Gaume paid a visit to the scenes of his youth and visited his old friends. Mrs. Gaume and four children are living. (LGW note: Matilda was long dead at this time and Charles never remarried although his four children were alive at this writing.) Mrs. Eusebe Lamielle and Mrs. James McDonald, of Louisville, were sisters of Mr. Gaume. Funeral services were held at Pasadena, Sunday." [Source: Louisville Herald, March 9, 1911]
