An Illustrated History of Central Oregon, Western Historical Publishing Company, Spokane, WA. 1905:
CHARLES BOLSBY who was born in Denver, Colorado, on September 22, 1862, is now one of tne substantial agriculturists of Crook county and resides in Suplee. His father was John K. Bolsby, a native of Ireland. When a young man he came to America and settled at Soda Springs, Colorado. By trade he was a cooper and baker and followed these occupations in Colorado. He fought in all the early Indian wars in that part of the country, and became a very prominent and leading man. He married Sophia Streeter of Scotch nativity who came to America when a young girl and the wedding occurred in Wisconsin. Our subject accompanied his parents from Colorado to Wisconsin when a mere boy and from that state, they journeyed later to Missouri. After that, they lived in Kansas and in 1876, Charles came on to the Willamette valley. His education was completed in the university at Eugene, Oregon, and following that he held the position of brakeman on the Oregon and California railroad for a number of years. Finally, in 1884, he came to Prineville, Oregon, and went into the stock business. That occupation has held him since and he has been quite successful in prosecuting the same. His ranch consists of six hundred acres of good land and at this time he is giving his attention to tilling the soil in addition to raising some stock. The place is well improved and Mr.Bolsby is planning more extensive additions and improvements to his estate in the near future.

Mr. Bolsby married Lily Delore, who was born at Dufur, Oregon, and died January 25, 1892. The household has been blessed by two children, Edith and Iva P. Mr. and Mrs. Bolsby enjoyed the esteem and confidence of all.
