    Notes 
    • According to OneWorld, his father was Solomon Ripley and his mother was Aurelia Pratt. In the 1820 census, there was a Solomon Ripley living in Farmington, Kennebec County, Maine.

      In the 1850 census, he was a farmer in the Town of Chesterville in Franklin County, Maine.

      In the 1860 census, he was a farmer in Minneapolis.

      In the 1875 state census, he and “Marthy” were living in Minneapolis.

      According to an article in the Minneapolis Tribune’s October 10, 1890, edition, Moses Ripley, Charles’s son, had questioned the older man’s sanity. “Charles Ripley has been pronounced sane by Judge Bailey, after a few hours’ visit. Moses Ripley, the son, claimed that the old man was incapable of manging his own business but the judge thought differently.”

      Charles died in 1891 leaving an estate of $75,000. He had real property that was considered quite profitable. This was mostly temement blocks on Washington Avenue south, near 12th and 13th Avenues, which yielded a monthly rental income of $400 to $600.
