Biographical Information

Charles Penzel was born in Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) on October 8, 1840. He came to Little Rock as a child, fought in the Confederate army, and was married to Rosa Eisenmeyer in 1873. She was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on December 21, 1855, but her parents were from Bavaria (now part of Germany). They lived at 518 East Seventh Street in Little Rock until the death of Charles on February 16, 1906, and the death of Rosa on November 26, 1938. They had a daughter, Marcella, born on November 27, 1883, who died June 27, 1976. All three are buried in the same mausoleum in Mount Holly Cemetery in Little Rock. Among other accomplishments, Charles was the founder of the German National Bank in Little Rock.
