Note it is interesting to note the dates Questions arise like Is James Birthday correct ?  Is Charles Marriage Date correct?   If they are correct.Charles and Maria  were married after James was born.    This is taken off the Brobst Family Tree line, perhaps more needs to be confirmed.  on the Census for 1850 it shows Charles married within the year.

Charles and Emmiline both could read and write. In the 1850 Census he is living with his father.

In the 1860 Census Charles and Emmeline have James  8 years old, from his previous marriage and Adeline who is only two.

In the 1870 Census. Charles and Emmeline have 3 daugthers and James is living with his grandfather.

In the 1880 Census Adeline is out of the house, and so is James, they have 5 daugthers living with them.
This would make a total of 6 daughter and one son.

In the 1900 Census they only have a farm helper and their granddaugther living with them. It states Emmeline only had 4 children living. James was not Emmeline's. so the remaining daugthers living would be the ones on James S Mengel obituary, which were Adeline, Ellen, Regina, and Emma.

Lived in Summit Hill, Carbon Co., PA where he operated a gristmill.

In 1900 there was only four of Emmiline Children Living.
Charles occupation is showing as a miller and a farmer.
It is most likely he only  spoke German.

Charles had sixteen children, only 5 living at the time of his death. Eleven children dying in his live time.

From the Brost Family Tree.

"James and Regina inherited the "Brobst Farm" from her father, Charles James Mengel who
bought it in 1871 from Elias George. It is located near Lehighton, in East Penn Twp,
Carbon Cty, PA, two miles west of the Lehigh River along Route 895, and consists of 20 acres -- five acres north of the highway and 15 acres south of the highway. The land was originally deeded by William Penn to John Rhoads on Aug 11 1750.

In 1942, Robert Brobst retained the property after the death of his mother, Regina.
Sadie Kressley, a niece of Robert Brobst, was raised on the farm by her grandmother,
Regina. Sadie lived on the farm until her death in 1981. Upon her death, the farm,
household goods, and personal belongings were sold at a public sale. The farm now
belongs to Ralph and Marge Cunfer; Ralph is Sadie's cousin, his mother Mary
(Brobst) Cunfer was Robert's sister

To put it simple Charles bought the farm, it past to his daugther Regina , then her son Robert Brobst  ( Grandson of Charles) had the farm, and now Ralph Cunfer (great grandson of Charles) is the present owner. It is not know if it is still owned by the family in present day
