This is my Uncle Charles❣️ I remember when he died we lived in Texas & my parents (Harry & Cherry Stevens) went back for his funeral. I remember how sad they were. I don’t remember a lot of this but my Mom & Aunt Charlotte told me us kids used to play in the jail cells. Lol.
My uncle was a hero & wonderful man!
