CHARLES F. CONRADY was born in New Bremen, Ohio, on Christmas day, 1853, the first-born son of Carl Friedrich Wilhelm and Julianne (Dickman) Conradi. Charles was given the same name as his father but he changed it to Charles after he left home and learned to speak and write English. He also changed the spelling of his last name to Conrady.

In 1871, just a few days before his 18th birthday, he enlisted in the First United States Cavalry at Louisville, Kentucky and was assigned to the west, where he served 10 years. He arrived at Fort Klamath, Oregon shortly after his enlistment in December of 1871. During this time, he was in the Modoc war. Mr. Conrady enlisted with a Mr. William Connelly and with him served all through the Modoc war and was with him at Fort Klamath.

Charles's five year enlistment ended on December 22, 1876 and he came back to Ohio for a visit and then re-enlisted on September 21, 1877 in Troop H, First United States Cavalry, in St. Louis, Missouri.

During his second enlistment he served at Fort St. Louis in Missouri and Fort Colville and Fort Spokan in the Washington Territory and Fort Lapwai in northern Idaho. Conflicts with the Bannock Indian tribe reached a climax in the spring of 1878. Charles had hoped to remain in Missouri and not be involved in the Indian Wars but this was not to be and he was reassigned to the northwest at Fort Colville in the Washington Territory. Charles fought in the Bannock War and participated in the famous charge up Birch Creek Hill under Captain Parnell on July 8, 1878.

He remained in Washington after his cavalry service and became one of the leading heavy mine owners in Stevens County, Washington.

On September 28, 1882, just five days after his enlistment date was ended, Mr. Conrady married Mary Louise King, daughter of Peter and Mary Ann (Finley) King. They were the parents of thirteen children:

1-Mary Louise "Mamie" (12/18/1882-3/14/1970)
2-Martha Elizabeth (3/12/1884-12/18/1973)
