Charles A. Bilbo (Choctaw)
From Leaders and Leading Men
Born in Leake county, Mississippi in 1857; son of William Bilbo. Charles was educated at Kings’ College, Bristol, Tennessee, and came to Caddo, Choctaw Nation, in 1885; after which he entered the mercantile establishment of W. H. Ainsworth for two years. In 1890 he opened a drug store and confectionery business in Caddo, where he is also proprietor of a livery stable. He is also owner of three farms of 250 acres, besides a pasture containing 2,000 acres, which he rented out at the rate of four dollars per head per annum until the passage of an act forbidding the introduction of alien’s cattle into the Nation. Mr. Bilbo married Miss Ella McCoy, daughter of Dr. McCoy of Caddo in 1890. He is highly connected, being a nephew of Mrs. Flack, of Atoka, one of the oldest citizens of the Indian Territory.
(Mrs. E. A. Flack, represented one of the most ancient families of the tribe. Mrs. Flack died last June at the age of nearly eighty. Her nieces, nephews and other relatives were almost numberless throughout the Nation, so that her death was deeply regretted.)
