Dear Jane,

thanks for the address to the article. It is
interesting. Unfortunately, it did not
provide any new information about Charley.

No, I am not a Parkhurst. Just very much
intrigued by Charley and her motivations.

Thanks Sabina.

Hi Sabina:

If you ever come up with anything new on Charley, I would be very interested. I have a friend who does camp fire stories for children at a campground near Yosemite.

Charley is one of her favorite topics and I like to try and get her additional material as she doesn't have internet access.

Hi Donna - my research on Charlie has been on hold for a while, mostly because I am not coming up with anything new. But I did find a book your friend migh be interested in: "One-Eyed Charley, The California Whip" by Randall A. Reinstedt.

Thank you Sabina!

My friend Vi does the campfire stories at a campground outside of Yosemite and Charley is one of her favorite tales. This will be a nice gift.

Thanks again... and I will let you know if I ever come across anything.

Hi Donna....after all this time you probably won't be checking but others may be able to use this. Our family speculated whether Charley could have been a member, but I find no record. Another book on him/her was "Six Horse Hitch"....I don't recall the author, but it was featured in one of the Reader's Digest Condensed books at least 50? years ago. Also, I believe I found info on Charley on Wikipedia.
