Charles Pask (1856-1939)

As mentioned in a previous blog, we found information on Charles Pask in the New York City Death Index. Charles was the great-grandfather of John Pask, our long time friend, and fellow researcher.

John has applied for the death certificate, and this arrived yesterday.

It details that he died on the 22 April 1939 @ 5.45 pm at 41-53 Glenwood, Queens NY and was buried in Ocean View Cemetery on April 25 1939 aged 84 yrs. Charles' occupation was given as Livery business.

His father's name was given as George Pask from England and mother Elizabeth Woolhouse also from England.

This information confirms our assumption that Charles was the sister of Caroline [Carrie] Pask. See today's blog Christopher Lewis' Photograph Album that provides photographs of Charles' children.

Many thanks to John for providing this information.
