I purchased the subject undated RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used) taken by M. H. Strong, Napa, CA. It depicts a three-story building at a corner location. The street number is 401, but the street name is unknown (I have not yet reviewed relevant Napa city directories). The sign above the entrance reads:


I found this individual listed in the 1900 Census data for Napa (resided on Calistoga Street), Napa Co., CA; the 1910 Census data for Napa (resided on Third Street), Napa Co., CA; the 1920 Census data for Napa (resided at 1202 Third Street), Napa Co., CA; and the 1930 Census data for Napa (resided at 286 Randolph Street), Napa Co., CA. Born Jun 1860 in Sweden, he was the son of an unknown Farman and Sophia A. (maiden name unknown), born Mar 1824 in Sweden. He immigrated in 1871; his sister Minnie S. Farman, born May 1858 in Sweden, immigrated in 1870; and their mother immigrated in 1896.

In about 1893, Charles married Emma F. Shogren, born May 1861 in MN, the daughter of a gleryman, Erick/Eric Shogren, born Jan 1824 in Sweden; and Catharine M. (maiden name unknown), born Jun 1822 in Sweden. Charles and Emma had four children (all born in CA)--Margaret A., born about 1895; John S., born about 1896; Philip C., born about 1899; and Carl H., born about 1902.
