Charles E. Kellogg was born in Berlin Heights, Ohio, February 13, 1873. He came with his parents to Iowa when a child. He received his early education at Greenfield, Iowa, and later attended Simpson College at Indianola, Iowa.
After completing his college work, he was a teacher in rural schools and later engaged in farming in Adair and Adams counties. He also served as justice of peace at Nevinville, Iowa, and for several years was in the implement business at Corning, Iowa. He represented Adams county in the Thirty-eighth General Assembly.
He was married to Sarah Van Vleet at Orient, Iowa, September 28, 1898, and to this union were born eight children. Those living are Wellington E., Doris A., Gladys A., Charles Philip, and Helen L. The dead are Mary E., Bessie A., and Sarah L.
