Charles Smith Battle

Charles Smith Battle was at 1835 Barclay Street in 1904. He was at 1050 Chilco Street from 1909 to 1912 and from 1915 to 1918.

Charles Smith Battle was a successful lumberman. He was at 1835 Barclay Street in 1904, and at 1050 Chilco Street from 1909 to 1912 and 1915 to 1918.

He was born on September, 1, 1863, at Vienna, Louisiana. His father was Colonel James Edward Battle of Raleigh, North Carolina. His mother was Sarah Suzanna Smith of Enfala, Alabama.

Charles’s father was a wealthy slave-owner, but that ended during the Civil War. Charles’s father was unwell, and he died when Charles was young, so Charles started working when he was 12. In his 20s, he had a series of businesses in Texas.

On June 17, 1894, in Chickasaw, Mississippi, he married Rosa Lee Tucker. After living in Texas for a short time, the family moved to Los Angeles and the Pacific Northwest. Charles arrived in Vancouver in 1901, and started a timber business; later he bought and sold timber, both for himself and for others on commission.

He belonged to several clubs, including the Vancouver Club, Vancouver Golf and Country Club, Shaughnessy Heights Golf Club, Vancouver Tennis Club. He was active in the Masons and in the Shriners. He was president of the Vancouver Golf Club in 1915 and 1915, and honorary president from 1916 to 1921: http://www.vancouvergolfclub.com/history/club-presidents-honorary-presidents/

He became a Canadian citizen just after the First World War.

The family travelled frequently, often to Europe and the eastern United States. According to some sources, a premonition caused Mr. Battle to avoid sailing on the maiden voyage of Titanic.

Charles Smith Battle died in 1939. He was buried in the family plot at the Masonic Cemetery, in Burnaby, British Columbia. Other family members in the Burnaby Masonic Cemetery are William Feimster Tucker Battle; Helen Fordham Battle, and Josephine Battle Harris. Besides his wife and family, Charles’s sister, Mrs. S.F. King of El Paso, Texas, also survived.

Rosa Lee Battle was born on September 1, 1866, in Okolona, Mississippi. Her father was General William Feimster Tucker (1827-1881), who was a teacher and a lawyer in Mississippi. During the U.S. Civil War, he became a brigadier general in the 41st Regiment of Mississippi Infantry. He received a severe wound to his right arm, which prevented him from further battle service. He was a member of the Mississippi Legislature from 1876 to 1878. He was murdered at Okolona, Mississippi on September 14, 1881.

Rosa Lee Tucker’s mother was Martha Josephine Shackelford (1831-1920).

Rosa Lee Tucker had a successful career as an elected State Librarian in Mississippi for two four-year terms, starting in 1888. After her marriage, she was active in church work. She also worked with the Red Cross during the First World War. She belonged to the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Daughters of the American Revolution.

She died in Vancouver on September 23, 1946. The family plot in the Burnaby Masonic Cemetery includes a marker for Rosalee Tucker Battle; there is also a monument to her in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Okolona, Mississippi.

In 1923, she received a Master of Arts degree from the University of British Columbia; her thesis was on the social ideas in the plays of Gerhardt Hauptmann (1862-1946). Later she was at the Sorbonne in Paris; she also studied at the University of Munich, and studied art and music in Berlin. In 1927 and 1928, she was an instructor in German at the University of British Columbia.

On September 1, 1928, in Vancouver, Sarah was married to Ernest Lloyd Harris, a widower who was the American Consul-General in Vancouver. He was born in Grinnell, Iowa on October 26, 1870. He was an academic, with doctorates in international and history at the University of Heidelberg. He had long career in the American foreign service.

He retired in 1935, and then spent his time in New York, California, and Vancouver. He died in Vancouver on February 2, 1946.

Battle, a wealthy Vancouver lumberman, was staying in London with friends prior to sailing for America. When April arrived, his friends urged him to stay for a few extra days so that he could sail home on the maiden voyage of Titanic. There was no reason for Mr Battle not to wait for Titanic, but he had a strange feeling that all might not go well if he sailed on the great liner. He deliberately booked his passage on Olympic instead, and sailed on board her on 3 April 1912.”

Edwards, Mrs. John Hanbury and Miss Catherine Marshall, who served tea and coffee from a table attractively arranged with poinsettias and crimson-shaded candles.”

The hostess, who had donned a becoming Leroux frock of Bulgarian filet lace, allied with modore [moiré?] brown silk crepe de chine and effective contrasting touches of blue, had assisting her to dispense hospitality, Mrs. C.S.
