Charles Andrew Ahrens was born July 11, 1827 in Hohen-Wesdt, Holstein, Germany. He emigrated to Berling (now Kitchener) in 1851 and was first a bookeeper for L. Breithaupt's tannery in 1857. He married Henrietta Charlotte Roth April 16, 1854 and the couple had 12 children. The family moved to Port Elgin, where Ahrens operated a general store, in partnership with a Mr. Kinzie. They family remained in Port Elgin for 3-4 years. The family moved back to Kitchener, where Ahrens became bookkeeper for the Hepburn Shoe Factory. Charles opened his own shoe store and later a factory, in 1879, located across from the Walper Hotel on Queen Street South. He was also the clerk and treasurer for the town of Berlin and in 1886 he was a Town Councillor. In the early 1900's, the shoe factory was a thriving business, which was later taken over by his son, Charles August. Charles Andrew Ahrens died on 18 August 1903 in Berlin, Ontario.
