A.K.A. Samuel Wells. Member of the James-Younger Gang. Was said to be a loyal friend of Cole Younger, as he had been the one who had found and gaurded the body of Cole's father, Henry Younger. He carried this loyalty on even further when he accompanied the Younger Brothers (and the rest of the gang) to the State of Minnesota, in an attempt to rob the First National Bank in Northfield. When the remaining members seperated in hopes of confusing the pursing posse, Charlie went along with the injured Younger brothers. On September 21 1876 in the Hanska Slough, Charlie took the loyalty to the end, when he was killed in a shoot out. The Youngers were caputred and sentence to the Stillwater Prison.Location of his body is unknown.
