KS, Family histories Vol. II pg. 91, Charles Hagen

On pages 91, in reprint of "Growing Up in Louisburg, 1926-1944" by Phil Thomas, History Writer, in a section called "Part 4 - Other Business and Personages in the Louisburg Area During the Period Being Reported", it says "Charles Hagen, private piano lessons."
