In 1885 Charles at age 13 moved to Barber Co. Ks with his family and later moving to Oklahoma.
In 1893 Charles was a participant in the Oklahoma Strip run they called the Cherokee Strip Run. On that exciting day it is noted that a cannon boomed exactly at noon September 16, 1893. Would be settlers of the unassigned land in Oklahoma Indian Territory race was on. They raced on horseback, in wagons, buggies and on foot to stake a claim. Charles land was located West of Hopeton a few miles south and west of Alva, OK. Because the salt flats are in the area, he felt that would be a good place away from the flats.
DECEMBER 25, 1896 he married Minnie L Fuller at her parents home Hiram and Sarah Whiteneck Fuller.
Charles went about building a home to live in and it was pretty much a dugout. All of his children were born here on the homestead. Later, he had lumber shipped in as the Frisco railroad was near his property line and build a nice home for the family.
