Charlie's father was Josiah Marion McClain who first married Julia America King in Georgia but left her and their children to come to Alabama and marry Elizabeth Broadway who gave birth to Charlie in 1886. Charlie was a short dark Indian man who was very spiritual; he was in World War I and he worked at the Church, made caskets as the epidemics caused a great need, and he was a farmer.
