CHARLES EDWARD FOULKE, an old resident and worthy representative of Bucks county, Pennsylvania, was there born in Richland Center in 1845, the son of Hugh and Sarah (ROBERTS) FOULKE. Mention of the ancestral history of Mr. FOULKE is made in the preceding sketch of his brother, William Henry FOULKE. Charles obtained his education in the Rockridge public school, continuing there until he was eighteen years of age. He then engaged in assisting with the home farm work, and later spent six months in Quakertown with Mr. Richard MOORE.  He subsequently purchased the home farm in partnership with his brother William, and in the spring of 1891 purchased his brother's interest, and has since continued alone in the conduct of the farm. Mr. FOULKE is one of the progressive farmers of the county, his farm comprising one hundred and seven acres of mostly improved land. In politics Mr. FOULKE is a strong advocate of the principles of the Republican party, has always taken a lively interest in local affairs, and has served as committeeman of his township. He and his wife are members of the Society of Friends of Quakertown Meeting.
