Charles was a farmer and carpenter who "married the girl next door." During the Civil War, he enlisted as a private in Co. F, 22nd Regiment, Michigan Infantry, joining the Army for a 3-year enlistment on 21 January 1864 at Utica. He was 33 at the time, with blue eyes, auburn hair, standing 5' 8 1/2" tall. While at training camp in Grand Rapids, he contracted the measles. He proceeded with his company as far as Indianapolis, Indiana, where he became worse and had to be taken to a hospital, where he died only 30 days after joining the Army (Col. George H. Turner [comp.], RECORD OF SERVICE OF MICHIGAN VOLUNTEERS IN THE CIVIL WAR, 1861-1865, 22 [Kalamazoo, MI: Published by Authority of the Senate and House of Representatives of the Michigan Legislature, under the direction of Brig. Gen. Geo. H. Brown, Adjutant General, by Ihling Bros. & Everard Stationers, Printers and Publishers, 1903], 128). Charles' funeral was held in Detroit on 3 March 1864.
After the war, Minerva re-married. Her second husband was Peter Steele, whom she married 25 January 1866 at Utica. They had seven children. Peter Steele was a brother to Catherine Steele, the wife of Charles' brother, Thomas. These are two of the four marriages connecting the Steele and Scribner families. Another is the marriage of Charles and Minerva's son, Charles, who married Peter Steele's sister, Caroline. And, Charles' niece, Ellen (daughter of brother Enoch) married Peter's brother, Richard Steele, Jr.
Peter Steele also served in the Civil War, in Co. G, 5th Regiment, Michigan Infantry. That outfit fought at Gettysburg and other important battles, and was honored by being in the firing line at Appomattox Courthouse when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant, ending the war.
For some reason known only to them, Peter and Minerva separated in 1885, a few years prior to her death. He moved out to Oregon, where he died in 1891.

In 1860, Thomas and Catherine were living in Clinton, outside Detroit, where he was a farm laborer. By 1870, they had moved to Shiawassee Township in Shiawassee County (near the center of the state) where he operated a farm. In 1880, they were in Detroit (116 Woodbridge Street), where he worked as a carpenter. In 1900, he was operating a corner grocery store in Detroit, at 581 McClellan Avenue.
They had 5 children, of whom 3 were living in 1900.
The estimated death dates for Thomas and Catherine are based upon the Civil War Pension File of Charles Hetzler (husband of Catherine's sister, Mary Elizabeth), in which Catherine gives written support to her sister's request for a Widow's Pension. Catherine states that she is the widow of Thomas Scribner, indicating that he had died before the Pension Application was made in 1909. And, of course, this means that Catherine died sometime after that date.

Samuel was a wagon maker in Salem, Washtenaw County, Michigan.
Very little is known about Rhoda, except that she was born in Canada and, it appears, had been married previously to a Mr. Cor in New York. Living with her and Samuel in 1870 were what appear to be her four children - Charles M. , Fred , Helen , Benjamin F.  - all with the last name of Cor, and all born in New York. From the ages of those children and the children of Samuel and Rhoda, the assumption can be made that Rhoda Cor's youngest child (Benjamin F. Cor) was born in 1867. Sometime during 1867, or early in 1868, Rhoda and Samuel were married in New York, and Rhoda gave birth to their first child, Asa, in 1868.
In the 1880 Census of Pontiac, Oakland County, we find a Rhoda Scribner, born in Canada and aged 39, listed in what appears to be the list of names of persons living in the Pontiac poorhouse. A notation alongside the list of names reads "None of these persons were gainfully employed during the Census year." That list is several pages long.
