Charles “Charley” Parkhurst, born 1812, was a stage coach driver in California during the gold rush. Born and orphaned in Vermont, Charley was raised as a girl until the age of 12, when he fled the orphanage he was raised in, donned boys’ clothes and became a stablehand for a stage coach driver, who then taught him the tricks of the trade. Without revealing his identity to anyone, he became an extremely proficient driver and was known as “One-eyed Charley” in the Sacramento area for the eye he lost from a horse kick. It was only after his death in 1879 from tongue cancer that it was discovered that he was a transgender man. youngmormonfeminists.org...
