Charles was an assistant ticket receiver for the Penn. Lines West in 1886, and then a ticket agent for M K & T Railroad at Fort Worth. By 1890, he was a ticket agent for Rock Island Railroad; later a passenger agent for Santa Fe Railroad in Chicago, and finally, an agent for the Milwaukee Railroad in Chicago.
