Charley Parkhurst

"One-eye Charley Parkhurst," working as a driver for stage lines came to California seeking fortune in the gold fields until around 1860. Charley was small, slim and wiry. When he spoke it was in an oddly high-pitched voice. Charley died 1879 in a small cabin near Watsonville. It was discovered that Charley was a woman.
Some years earlier on November 3, 1868, Charley had cast a ballot in an election which made her the first woman to vote in the United States.
