I am looking for information on death of Charles Crary. I found a newspaper article on Ancestry.com. It reads: "A Bricklayer Ends His Life - El Paso Sept. 24, 1885 -Charles Crary, a bricklayer, was found drowned in an irrigating canal in the suburbs of the city, this morning. Drinking, caused by domestic trouble, it is thought, caused him to suicide". This article was in the Galveston Daily News the next day. This was in 1885. I believe this to be my great-great grandfather Charles Crary who left Cincinnati, Ohio and went to Texas. An Ancestry message board I found said he was an alcoholic, his wife in Ohio contracted TB, he left his two sons with wife's parents. After discovering this, I found a letter that indicated he went to Texas and no one knows anything after that. Could anyone please help me? He must have remarried. Surely some info would be somewhere in El Paso. Thank you so very much.
