Some sources spell his surname "Welsh." Charles crossed the Atlantic on the ship Ellen Maria in 1853. One of his obituaries says he arrived in Utah in 1850 but the ship record and the Jacob Gates Company Report demonstrate that this is incorrect.
Birth date is confirmed by his re-baptism record in the Salt Lake Stake record of members, the membership records of the Ogden 2nd Ward and the missionary register.
