  • Notes 
    • Charles R. Street was a member of the bar, and a member of the California state assembly, 13th District, Shasta county, 1858-1860. Following the death of wife Lucy and one child in 1865, he returned to Huntington with two remaining children. He settled in Huntington, where he became a lawyer and newspaper editor. He bought the Suffolk Democrat, moved it from Babylon to Huntington and changed its name to the Suffolk Bulletin, but soon sold it, only to re-purchase it in 1881.

      Charles served as Justice of the Peace 1880-1884; Supervisor of the Town of Huntington 1883-1884 and chairman of the Suffolk County Board of Supervisors; member of the Huntington Board of Education. He undertook the copying, editing and publication of the Huntington town records 1885-1886; served as postmaster of Huntington during the first Cleveland administration [1885-1889]. He was a member of St. John's Episcopal Church, Huntington, where the funeral was held.

      As family genealogist, he was probably better acquainted with the town's history than any other of the Huntington citizens and in company with Henry S. Wood a number of years he had the old records of the town, which are almost invaluable, transcribed.
