Stephen Tingley
Birth: Sep. 13, 1839
Death: Oct. 9, 1915

Western Teamster. Born in America's North Western Territory, he went to British Columbia in 1861, to prospect in the Cariboo Gold Rush. After years of no luck, he hired on as a stage driver for the Barnard's Express in 1864. Known as the "Whip of the Cariboo", he incorporated as a partner with the British Columbia Express Company in 1871 and drove stagecoaches in the Cariboo region over what was then one of the most hazardous roads in North America. In 1886, Tingley became sole owner of the express company which he ran for before selling out in 1894. He then bought a ranch where he built the BX Barn Service which had large stables for draft horses that were used to pull the stagecoaches along the Cariboo road until he relocated to Vancover in 1909. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
