Joe, Sorry for the delay. Charles was born on June 8, 1895 in Havana Cuba. Rose wanted me to let everyone know his parents were Cuban not French. Are you able to make the correction?
His wife, Lynne Castel was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on January 31, 1917.
Lynne was a master puppeteer and made her own marionettes. She would perform her puppet show and Charles would perform his Magic Show as a complete evening package, since 1941. As I get more details, I'll continue to keep you up to date.
Best Magical Regards,
Once is Magic...Twice is an Education.
