This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Charles Garfield Tracy was married to Rhea Lucille Snow (1896-1976) from April 10, 1918 in Farmington, Utah, until his death, September 11, 1955 in Arcadia, California. When they married she was a resident of Utah, having lived to age five in a Ladder Day Saint's family commune at Beehive House.  It had been built in 1854 near the Salt Lake City Mormon Temple to accommodate LDS founder, President and polygamist, Brigham Young and his wives and children. Rhea lived there the first five years of her life because it was the official home of her father, Lorenzo Snow (1814-1901), the Fourth LDS President since Young's death in 1877. Rhea's mother was Sara Minnie Jensen Snow (1855-1908), and she and Lorenzo had nine children. Rhea became the youngest and last surviving of Lorenzo Snow's six wives and 42 children.

In adulthood Rhea became an actress in vaudeville and motion pictures, wrote scenarios and radio plays, taught drama, authored several books and many poems and later as a widow and resident of Utah, served in California on behalf of the Indian Affairs Committee. She is buried in Brigham City Cemetery in Brigham City, Utah.

In 1919, Charles and Rhea Tracy had a daughter, Mauvia Snow, born in Salt Lake City, who became a highly respected health professional in the San Francisco area and also remained a member of the LDS Church.  A second daughter, Norlyn Snow, was born to Charles and Rhea in 1922 in Manhattan Beach, California. This daughter became a noted public speaker for the LDS Church, and in her obituary it was written: "Her father was Charles Garfield Tracy, a motion picture director, experienced vaudeville actor and renowned artist." This description would suggest that Charles and Rhea Snow Tracy met when both were active in theatre.

Biography from Carlson Gallery:

A signature note submitted in June of 2006 by David J. Carlson:

I recently found out that the majority of the paintings  sold by this artist in the 1920s and 1930s  were signed 'CHARLS'.
