Murry Charles died at his home in Quinney, on Tuesday, at an advanced
age, and thus another character of this section of Wisconsin has passed away.
"Doctor" Charles was an Indian and will be remembered by many of the old
settlers. In early days he was a great violinist and made music for many
dances in which the pioneers took part. He had a number of remedies which he
prescribed for the ailing and in many cities of Wisconsin he set up an office,
on different occasions making much money by the treatment of the afflicted.
He was a member of the 21st regiment during the war and a good soldier.
