Charles H. Edwards served in Co. D, 12th. Me. Regt. Inf., Civil War. He was mustered out Feb. 11, 1865.

Charles Henry Edwards and family lived for one year in that part of Casco, known as "Chadeguay" in a log house built by himself and his brother Hall. He then purchased a farm located on "The Pond" road, where he resided until May 14, 1889, when his house was burned and the family was obliged to take temporary quarters in a small building which had then recently been constructed for farm purposes. Bunks were erected along one wall of the building and the remaining space served for all other household purposes.

In June, 1889, the present homestead located on "Mayberry Hill" was purchased. In later years the house was entirely remodeled to form the now existing comfortable two story residence.
