He died in early 1826 in York County, South Carolina. His will was dated 1815 and probated April 24, 1826. Charles married 1) Lucy or Lucinda _________, mother of the children listed. Before November 1781, Charles married 2) Elizabeth Patton, sister of John and David Patton, by whom he had no children. On at least 2 occasions, Charles sold supplies to the North Carolina Military. See Revolutionary War Accounts in the North Carolina Department of Archives and History: Volume XIV, page 13, folio 1, and Volume V, page 2, folio 1. Charles was living in Wake County, North Carolina, when his father, (John) Watson Brumfield died in November 1781. Apparently he lived in North Carolina until 1789, at which time he, some of his children, and the Kellys, moved to York County, South Carolina. His home was on Fishing Creek, York County, South Carolina, which was purchased from William Martin in 1807, adjoining land that he already owned. His second wife Elizabeth left a will that was probated 7-2-1834, leaving her estate to her side of the family, indicating that none of the Brumfield children were her own. Charles was a member of the Catawba Baptist Church, located between Catawba and Rock Hill, South Carolina. The church was aso called Ellison's Creek or Catawba River in its early years. Charles was a church messenger to the association meetings in 1796 and 1797. In one of the meetings, Charles presented the recommendations of his congregation, that a certain minister be censured because of subject matter in his sermons.
