Charles Clarence and his brother, John William Blackman ran the Blackman Livery Stable in Humeston, Iowa. The business was destroyed October 9, 1905 when a fire started in the Livery barn from unknown causes. Several other businesses were also destroyed. He also had a paper hanging and painting business. He had that business before the Livery Stable. After the Livery burned Charles Clarence went to work as a railroad brakeman. Charles was the mayor of Humeston, Iowa in 1905. Need to research for more details.
