From: Jack Conklin, (Class of 1967) E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Question/Comment: posted 2/20/2013 - My story is similar to the one by Patricia Cutler Hilton above. It appears that Bronco Charlie who said that he was born in 1849 or 1850 had a â?obigâ? birthday party at his restaurant in Oakdale; I am to guess that it was his 100th. My parents took me to that party when I was very young. The story that was told to me was that at some point I was placed on Bronco Charlieâ?Ts lap. My parents were concerned that I might fall asleep but I did not. In actuality he fell asleep while I sat there on his lap. My parents, and those who were caring for him, did not know what to do about removing me without startling him. My parents told me that I was a â?ogood sportâ? and stayed there until he finished his nap. I remember the interior of the restaurant and bar area and remember being awed by the â?olog cabinâ? appearance. I also have a vague memory of him sitting in his wooden arm chair. I donâ?Tt remember the event itself as I must have been too young.
