Typical of his belief that local politics should be divorced from party, during the early years of city government he was approached by the ward committee with the request that he allow the use of his name as a candidate for alderman, which was equivalent to an election but declined the honor from party standpoint, although signifying his willingness to accept the nomination as an independent candidate..

Walter Raleigh Babson, a great grandson, states that George came from Massachusetts circa 1846 and first settled in Chadbourn, NC. It seems that Charles kept in touch with his children in Massachusetts, for his son, George, settled first near his father, and lived in the Chadbourn area for about two years before moving in approximately 1848 to Brunswick County. Between 1848 and 1849 George moved and settled on the Waccamaw River, Brunswick Co. According to his descendants, he was a farmer, a Baptist preacher and also a school teacher. Jim Babson, a grandson, says he had been well educated by his aunts and uncles in Massachusetts. In a letter to Mrs. Paul Hanks, Clyde R. Babson told of George coming to Wilmington, North Carolina on a sailing ship from Massachusetts. Since his brother, Abraham, was a sea captain, perhaps George came with him on one of his voyages. Many years later, Abraham wrote to George that he was to put into port at Wilmington with a three-masted ship, carrying a load of mackerel and that he was to return to Massachusetts with a cargo of molasses, and asked George and his wife to return with him. Mr. Jim Babson said his grandfather, George, wouldn't return with his brother because his wife didn't care to live in New England. He and his family appear in Brunswick Co., NC, on the 1850, 1860 and 1870 U.S. censuses.1473,1474,1475

Their youngest son, Stephen Edwards, a remarkable gentleman at the age of 94, wrote on 7 July 1975 of his parents:

One of the interesting and perhaps unusual things in the Babson-Smith alliance is the fact that my grandfather on my mother's side - Stephen Smith - and my father were about the same age and both came from Massachusetts to California at the same time, Stephen from New Bedford and Seth from Newburyport. Stephen ran away to sea and was with his uncle, Capt. Stephen Smith of Baltimore, for a number of years before Capt. Smith gave up traveling to all the ports of the world and settled on a Mexican Grant on the coast at Bodega - 100 miles north of San Francisco and there my mother was born. ...

My father, Seth Paris ("Paris" is a mystery) came around the Horn, arriving at San Francisco in March 1850, but soon left for the gold fields at Coloma where the discovery was first made. The whole area was teeming with gold seekers, with little luck, and nearby Hangtown, now know as Placerville, became a place of gambling carousers, which was not to my father's liking, so he left and went to Sacramento. There he developed his native skill as a carpenter and eventually became a most capable architect and designed and constructed many of the homes of the pioneer families, notably the Crockers and Stanfords, now still standing as historical memories of those days. In 1875 he moved to Alameda, there building the home in which I was born (the house still standing as good as the day it was built 100 years ago)
