  CHARLES H. OWSLEY, senior member of the firm of Owsley & Boucherle Co., architects, at Youngstown, was born at Blaston, Leicestershire, England, where he was reared and educated, his studies being in the line of his profession.
     Mr. Owsley came to America at the age of 22 years.  After living for a time at Toronto, Canada, he came to Youngstown, and here, for the past 35 years, he has been engaged as an architect, during 20 years of this period having been associated with Louis Boucherle, under the firm name of Owsley & Boucherle Co.  This firm has been concerned in almost all of the important building operations of Youngstown and vicinity, for many years.  It designed the Young Men's Christian Association Building, the Dollar Bank Building, the Tabernacle Church, the Memorial Presbyterian Church, the Richard Brown Memorial Sunday School, the larger number of the school buildings, several substantial business blocks and many imposing private residences, all the above at Youngstown.  The firm also made the plans for the Buhl club house at Sharon, Pennsylvania, and for school houses at Ashtabula, Bradford, Geneva, Franklin, East Liverpool, Martin's Ferry and Warren, Ohio.  They built the beautiful Presbyterian Church at Butler, Pennsylvania, and have designed many elegant country homes in the rural districts.  They have been commissioned the prepare designs and to execute plans for the new Mahoning County Court House, a view of which may be seen on another page of this volume.  The present activity in building, at Youngstown, will produce several important buildings designed by this firm, creating an architectural  standard not exceeded in any city of the State.
     At Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, England, in 1886, Mr. Owsley was married to Mary Williams, who was born at Newcastle-on-Tyne, Northumberland County, England, and they have five surviving children, viz.:  Dr. H. F., who has been a practicing physician and surgeon in New York city, for the past six years, a graduate of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and of the Royal Ophthalmic Hospital, London, England; Louise, wife of Edward Beadel, residing at New Castle, Pennsylvania, chief engineer and general manager of the Pennsylvania Engineering Works; William M., a successful practitioner of law at Youngstown, a graduate of the New York Law School; Charles F., who is associated in business with his father; and Martha M., residing at home, a graduate of Miss Baldwin's School, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.  Of the above family, Charles F. Owsley began his studies in 1896, as a pupil under Architect E. L. Masqueray, of New York City, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, with the degree of B. S. in architecture, and then studied this art in Paris and subsequently traveled extensively through Europe.
     Charles H. Owsley is a valued member of the Youngstown Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of the committee on postal affairs.  Fraternally he is a Mason and an Elk.  With his family he belongs to the First Presbyterian Church.
