August Karl Rauhut was born in Zduny, Krotoschin, Province of Posen, Prussia (Part of Germany became Poland) in 1856. He changed his name to Charles August Rauhut after he came to America in 1876. Carl first came to Virginia City, Nevada and lived with his brother Robert who was a barber at a bath house. Carl sent for his first cousin, Christine, to come to America and be his wife. They were married in Virginia City in 1879. Their first child, Clara Virgina (Snyder), was born in 1881 and after a few years they moved to Benecia where Carl operated a merchandise store. Their second daughter, Cecil, was born in Benecia in 1890. They had six other children that died as infants. Carl moved to San Francisco where he was the owner of Reynolds Woman's Underwear store. After the San Francisco Earthquake in 1906 Carl left the city and relocated in Oakland where he helped his cousins with their business. When Christine died in 1911, Carl remarried a year later to Bertha Schultz. They had a son, Herman Carl Rauhut, born in 1914. Bertha died in 1924 and Carl married Ethel Denroche in 1929. Carl died in Oakland in 1938, eight days short of his eighty-second birthday.
