Charles Samuel Erbland is the right-most person in this picture.  The reverse of the print reads "Picture Taken About 1916 at Stark Steel Rolling Mill, a division of Berger Mfg. Co., Canton, Ohio."  Charles was the "Roller" which means that he was the head of the crew. At the time of the great steel strike of 1919, C. H. Charles was the General Manager of the Stark Rolling Mills.  Charles S. Erbland was born 30-JUL-1880 at Canton, Stark County, Ohio.  He died 05-SEP-1954 at Canton and was buried at Westlawn cemetery, at Sec Y. Lot 354.  He married Nora Emily Linton on 16-May-1901.  They had 6 children: Stewart, Hilda, John Gaylord, Donald, Linton and Alice Marie.  The location of the Stark Rolling Mill is known from the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps for 1914.  These maps also show the detailed layout of the position  of the rolling machines within the mill.  Even though the roller mill building (which ran in a north and south direction) was about 260 meters in length, there is only one location shown on the 1914 Sanborn maps where the configuration of rolling machines seen in this photo existed; that is, where two machines were spaced closely together, flanked by two other machines spaced equally, but farther apart on either side.  From this information, it is deduced that this photo would have been taken at location N40 48.317' W81 20.825' WGS84.  This is about 140 meters ENE of the intersection of Belden Ave. NE and 10th St. NE.

Mother of Charles Samuel Erbland. Annie (called Anna) Marie Gerber, born 1855 in Bern Switzerland, died 02-AUG-1934 at Canton, Ohio.  She married August Erbland 16-APR-1874 and they had 7 children: Fred A., Caroline, Annie, Mary, Charles Samuel, Herman A. and John Otto. She married twice more after the death of August.  Is it possible that she appears at the extreme right in Unknown Photo "R"?

Charles S. Erbland and his children are shown in these two photos which appear to have been taken on the same day, along with the one of Linton Erbland and dog that follows. The year was probably 1910.  The left photo, proceeding clockwise from the upper left, is: Hilda, Linton, Charles (father), John Gaylord and Donald.  The photo on the left, that includes the children's father, was scanned from the original glass plate negative. In the photo on the right, at the upper left is Hilda, upper right is John Gaylord, center is Linton and lower left is Donald.   The Charles Erbland family were living at 131 Graham Ave. at the time of the 1910 census, 25-APR-1910.  It is not know if that is where these photos were taken.
