CHARLES UNDERWOOD is the son of Moses Underwood, one of the pioneers in the business of tanning and belt making in Connecticut. He made Coventry, Tolland county, his home in 1833, and three years later removed to Tolland, where he was for years interested in manufacturing. His son, Charles, was born in 1824 in Jewett City, New London county, Conn. He removed to Tolland in youth, and has since been identified with its interests, much of his time being given to agricultural pursuits. He is associated with the republican party in politics, and represented his district in the state senate in 1868 and 1869. For twenty years he has made Florida his winter home, where he is much interested in orange culture. Mr. Underwood was September 30th, 1850, married to Mary Hawkins. Their children are: Jennie H., Mrs. Frank Uhler, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; Mary L., wife of Reverend C. H. Daniels ; Kate M., Mrs. George W. Lansing, of Troy, N. Y.; and Charles F., who resides at home. Mr. Underwood is president of the Tolland Savings Bank.
