Treasure Chest Thursday - Charles Auble (1849-1916) Death Certificate

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time for another document or artifact from my collection of "stuff" collected on my ancestral families over the past 22 years.

Here is the Death Certificate for my great-grandfather, Charles Auble (1849-1916).

The information on this death certificate includes:

* Full Name: Charles Auble
* Place of Death: Agnew Hospital, Ward 4, City of San Diego
* Sex, Color or Race, Marital Status: Male, White, Married
* Date of Death: Mar. 23, 1916
* Husband of: Georgia K. Auble
* Date of Birth: Oct. 31, 1854
* Age: 61 years, 4 months, 24 days
* Occupation: Painter
* Place of Birth: New Jersey
* Name of Father, and Birthplace: Auble, New Jersey
* Name of Mother, and birthplace: Knapps, New Jersey
* Length of Residence: 5 Years at Place of Death, 5 Years in California
* Informant: Emily K. Auble, 14th & F St., City
* Cause of Death: ???? Cystitis, ???? shows -- Gall bladder ruptured, accidental fall

* [Doctor's] Signature: G.W. Compton, M.D.
* Place of Burial or Removal: Masonic Cemetery
* Date of Burial: Mar. 25, 1916
* Undertaker: Bradley & Woolman, San Diego

The family of Charles Auble still thought that he was born in 1854 rather than in 1849 as all of the census data before 1900 states (1950, 1860, 1870 and 1880 all indicate a birth year of about 1849). His 16 year old daughter, Emily, was entrusted with providing all of the information, so it's no surprise that she didn't know the first names of his parents, David Auble and Sarah Knapp. The home address is given as 14th and F Streets in San Diego.
