  1. Elmira was a remarkable woman. She had 11 children, 10 of whom survived. Her husband John died in 1867 on his way back from the East after a long absence,leaving her to bring up 10 children under 17. In a letter to Hanson, Charlton referred to 'a mother’s prayers, a mother’s love and an anxious care of 25 years (and such a mother, old bro, as our darling),'.
