Charles Browne Fleet (September 18, 1843 – May 12, 1916) was a pharmacist and inventor of the laxative and chapstick.[citation needed] His company, C.B. Fleet, was founded in Lynchburg, Virginia, and still operates producing laxatives, douches, enemas, and other products of the sort.[citation needed]

Although his family life was quite mysterious, several matches have been found. The Connelly family is known to share blood with him, as well as the Ferrone family.[citation needed] Although Fleet originally comes from Virginia[citation needed], his families now live in Long Island, New York.[citation needed]
