Charles Clinton Byers

Charles Clinton Byers was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, July 7, 1843.  He went to school there in the place of his birth, but at the outbreak of the Civil War joined the Seventh Maryland, and was made first sergeant of Company A.
     He fought through the war, and was there to witness the surrender of Lee at Appomattox.  He went back to Hagerstown for a while, but soon went out to Santa Fe, N. M., where he engaged in mercantile pursuits.
He came to Kansas City in 1871, and accepted a position with Tootle, Hanna & Leach, and remained in the wholesale dry goods business until 1890.  In 1895 he was appointed a Deputy Circuit Clerk, and upon the resignation of S. H. Ragland in 1900, was appointed Clerk of Division 3.
     He married Miss Lucy Stonestreet in 1874 at Kansas City, and is the father of one child, C. C., Jr.
     While in New Mexico, Mr. Byers organized the first Grand Army Post in that State, and was elected Senior Vice-Commander.
     He has ever been a consistent Democrat, and has contributed materially to his party's success by his enthusiasm and energy.
