Biographical Sketch of C. E. Duckworth

That the people appreciate enterprise and perseverance is shown by the success of one of our principal firms, whose name heads this sketch. They are closely identified with the business interests of this city, and carrying a complete line of general merchandise and miners supplies, are in a position to cater to the wants of their many patrons. That they do this satisfactorily is shown by the legions of friends Mr. Charles E. Duckworth possesses. He is a native of Clark County, Illinois, and in 1870, at the age of eleven with his father, came to Auburn, Baker County. Since 1871, with the exception of six years spent in farming in the valley, he has been engaged in merchandising in either Sumpter or McEwan. He has ever stood ready to contribute his share by word and act to the prosperity of the “valley,” putting its interests paramount even to his own. Fraternally he is au Odd Fellow, Woodman, Workman and Artisan.
August 13th, 1880, he married Miss B. Lence, of Jonesboro. Union County, Illinois.
