Charles H. Pearson
Charles H. Pearson was born at Ossipee, New Hampshire on February 21, 1859. He "evinced a taste for literature at a very early age, and at fourteen published for one year an amateur journal. In 1882 he was for a time city editor of the Saginaw Herald. Subsequently Mr. Pearson was admitted to the bar, and in 1883 began the practice of his profession at Gladwin. In 1884 he was married to Miss Flora O. Biehn. Mr. Pearson has contributed to the Detroit Free Press, Drake's Magazine, Texas Shiftings, and other prominent publications. Suffering much from rheumatism, Mr. Peason removed to his old home at Laconia, N.H., dividing his time between law, literature and lumbago."
