Fort Worth Star Telegram: August 22, 1991
Farwell, Charlie McCafferty
I will always remember the last story Charlie McCafferty told me. It was only a few days ago. I asked him about Edward McCafferty. Yes, Charlie told me, Edward was his ancestor from San Patricio. Edward died March 6, 1836, defending the Alamo.
So long, Charlie McCafferty. It’s too sad to say good bye.
Fort Worth Pride
Fort Worth lost a valuable asset then Charlie McCafferty died. With McCafferty’s passing goes a personal archive of Fort Worth’s history and so many of its historical characters. How proud the McCafferty’s would be of their son. After all, there were not a wealthy pioneer family, no cattle barons no oil-rich businessmen in the genealogical tree. Charlie’s father, C.B. McCafferty, was a weigh master and active participant in unionizing the Stockyards. Charlie followed his father’s pursuit of politicking as an active member of the Democratic Party and like his father, the Stockyards became an important part of his life.
Charlie showed us how interesting and how much a part of Fort Worth’s history those workers at the Stockyards were. And how important the Stockyards are to Fort Worth and its economy. Charlie and his wife, Sue, set out in the 1970s to save the Stockyards from decay and possible demolition. They formed the North Fort Worth Historical Society and by insisting that it was of both immense historical and economical value succeeded in preserving an important part of Fort Worth’s heritage.
Today, the Fort Worth Stockyards is a national shrine. It is a true symbol of where the West begins. And in many ways it is a legacy that Charlie McCafferty left to Fort Worth. I was always proud to say that Charlie McCafferty was my cousin. He was a true character. He looked the part of an old West storyteller. You couldn’t forget the round face, that extended mustache and that beautiful Scotch-Irish smile. He shared my family with so many, and I am both proud and thankful that he did. I am glad that strangers found our ancestors so appealing. I am sure that today Charlie is sitting in heaven with all those McCafferty’s each trying to out-talk the other.
I once read that if you want to find out what the important things are in life, attend a funeral. There you will not hear about the time put in the office, what part of town the person lived in or what kind of car he or she drove. You will hear how that person was a loving husband or wife, a caring parent, a true friend and what they gave their community. In reviewing the life of Charlie McCafferty and the eulogies that have been bestowed upon him, he had a very important life and will be missed by many. Farewell to the ‘Duke of Jacksboro Highway’.
Fort Worth Star-Telegram August 20,1991 OBITUARIES
‘Charlie McCafferty, 59, spun tales about Old West’
by Hollace Weiner
Fort Worth Star Telegram
FORT WORTH – Charlie McCafferty, the jovial, yarn-spinning, one-man tourist bureau for north Fort Worth, died Monday of a massive heart attack on the lawn outside the historic Stock Exchange Building, where he had helped create a museum of the Old West. He was 59.
‘Charlie died where he wanted to die – down in the Stockyards. He couldn’t have picked a better place,’ said Butch Hall, public information officer at the Fort Worth Fire Department, where Mr. McCafferty had worked as a fire engineer and public information officer for 31 years. ‘The tragedy, said fellow Fort Worth historian buff Marsha Anderson, ‘is that no one got Charlie’s stories on tape. He did walking tours. Thousands and thousands of visitors have heard his stories.’ In a booming voice with a heavy twang, Mr. McCafferty entertained close friends and a steady stream of tourists with outlaw tales passed down to him by his grandparents, pioneers who planted their roots in Fort Worth in the 1870s.
Funeral arrangements were pending yesterday with Greenwood Funeral Home, with burial to be in the historic Oakwood Cemetery. That burial ground is the site of the annual Fourth of July picnic and storytelling session of the North Fort Worth Historical Society which Mr. McCafferty founded in 1975. July Fourth of this year found Mr. McCafferty, a consummate actor, standing alongside his grandfather’s grave telling the story of the shifty stranger who stumbled into his grandad’s campsite one moonless night and asked to share a meal and campfire. When day dawned, his grandfather realized his guest was the notorious outlaw Sam Bass.
‘Charlie told the story so well, you thought it had happened to him,’ said Anderson, public information specialist with the Fort Worth Library, one of many municipal public relations people whom Mr. McCafferty took under his wing. ‘He was definitely the most unforgettable character I’ve ever met,’ Anderson said.
Barrel-chested, with a waxed mustache and a shaved head topped with a Stetson, Mr. McCafferty looked the part of an old-fashioned sheriff and once appeared on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ as Cowtown semi-official ambassador. ‘With his thumbs hooked into the pockets of his jeans, he breathed life into genealogy, recounting how one of his grandfathers drove the stagecoach between Fort Worth and Weatherford and how another was chief weigh master of the Fort Worth Stockyards Co.
‘His father C.B. McCafferty, was chief weigh master and Tarrant County Democratic chairman. Charlie McCafferty followed suit, becoming a Democratic precinct chairman and a fixture in the Stockyards Historic District as well. As vice-president of the North Side Business Association in the early 1970s, he revived the now wildly successful Pioneer Days Celebration. That experience, and the approaching U.S. Bicentennial, led him and his wife, Sue, to create the North Fort Worth Historical Society, which researched and saved dozens of structures that hark back to the city’s cowboy era. In April 1989, Mr. McCafferty was disciplined by the fire chief after reporting to the police and the media what he called extensive abuses within the department. Mr. McCafferty reported the use of city tools to repair private vehicles, favoritism in granting overtime, personal use of Fire Department vehicles, X-rated movies shown in fire stations and the out-of-state personal trips billed to the city. The Police Department investigation found no criminal violations, and Mr. McCafferty was ‘forced in-to early retirement’ from his $29,000-a-year job, his wife said.
Fire Department spokesman Butch Hall termed his colleague’s departure ‘accelerated’ retirement brought on by Mr. McCafferty’s health problems. For several years, Mr. McCafferty suffered minor problems with his lower heart chambers, his wife said. Recently he had been plagued with serious problems that included congestion of the heart arteries and an enlarged heart. He had been scheduled for a heart cauterization Thursday at Medical Plaza Hospital. He and his wife were returning from an appointment with the cardiologist about 3:15 p.m. yesterday when Sue McCafferty, who was driving, pulled into the gravel driveway of the Stock Exchange Building, 131 E. Exchange Ave., and heard her husband say he had a sharp pain. She helped him onto the buildings grassy lawn. Ambulance workers were unable to revive him. ‘He was near the place he loved,’ his wife said. ‘If Charlie could have planned this, he might have had a brass band.’
Survivors: Wife of 26 years, Sue McCafferty of Fort Worth; three sons (Charles adopted his second wife’s three sons), Barry McCafferty, Mike McCafferty and Mark McCafferty, all of Fort Worth; and four grandchildren.

Dies at home of Daughter:
John C. McCafferty, a retired business man and farmer, died at 6:45 this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edward C. Steinle, on east Seventh Street. He had grown gradually worse from the inception of his illness last Monday morning and his death was not unexpected by his relatives. He was afflicted with a chronic disease of the kidneys.
Except for a brief period of years when he lived in Oklahoma, Mr. McCafferty had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Steinle, since the death of his wife, February 20, 1901. He was born in Harrison township, October 13, 1832, son of Green and Lettie Gregory McCafferty. His marriage with Miss Elizabeth Jones took place in 1860 and six children resulted from the union. Three children died in infancy and one son Luther, was called to rest in July 1906. The surviving children are Mrs. Steinle and Hiram McCafferty of Washington. One sister, Mrs. John Russell of this city, and one brother, Henry McCafferty, of San Antonio, Texas also survive him. To Mr. McCafferty belonged the distinction of having owned and run the first ferry boat across the east fork of White River at the present Harriman’s ferry. He made several trips on flatboats to New Orleans, carrying products to the markets there. In the early 70’s, Mr. McCafferty moved to a farm northwest of Washington. Subsequently he traded his river bottom farm at Harriman’s for the Logan general Store, which was located at Fourth and east South streets in this city. He continued in this business for along term of years, but eventually sold out to L.C. Cosby. In 1902 he purchased the Gold Mine store from Dan Arnsman. The name was changed to the Boston Store and the the business was operated by Mr. McCafferty until 1906 when he retired.
For many years, Mr. McCafferty was a member of the Masonic Fraternity. He was a man of strong religious convictions and endeavored to put them into practice to the best of his ability. He will be remembered best by those who knew him intimately.
Lettie Leora McCafferty 6 (22 September 1866-08 March 1914), the first child of John and Elizabeth McCafferty, was born and died in Washington, Daviess Co., Indiana. She married Edward Charles Steinle (3 September 1863-06 May 1916) on 25 September 1889 in Washington, Daviess, Indiana. Edward and Lettie lived in Evansville, Indiana; Muncie, Indiana; Franklin, Indiana; and Washington, Indiana. Edward was a retail businessman. Lettie died at the age of 47 years. She is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, Daviess Co., Indiana. They had two children: Cecil (ca. 1890-1895); Marguerite. The following was her obituary:
Washington Gazette Weekly, Friday 13 March 1914:
Death Again Enters Home:
Eight days after the death of her father, John C. McCafferty, Mrs. Edward C. Steinle, wife of a prominent and well known Washington business man, and herself on of the city’s most highly revered women, died at her home on northeast Seventh street at 6:30 Sunday evening. Tuesday, the day following the burial of her father, Mrs. Steinle became ill, suffering from a cold and an apparent nervous breakdown. A physician subsequently was called and treatment began. A neuralgic condition developed later and recurring attacks of the disease left her in a more depressed and weakened condition. The pains, finally shifting, attacked her heart and death was the result, every restorative and stimulant known to science being used in a vain effort to aid nature.
The uncertainty of life has seldom been more forcibly illustrated and the city more generally shocked than it was when news spread that Mrs. Steinle had succumbed. But few friends ever knew that she was ill and they were inexpressibly shocked at the announcement of her death. Mrs. Steinle was personally popular in this city and her death, coming with such suddenness, was all the more distressing because of the recent death of her aged father. Her friends were Sunday night too shocked to express in words the deep sympathy they felt for Mr. Steinle, her only daughter, Miss Marguerite, and her brother, Hiram McCafferty, to whom is left a precious heritage of friends.
Lettie Leora Steinle was a daughter of John C. and Elizabeth Jones McCafferty of Harrison township, in which part of Daviess Co. she was born, reared and educated. She became the bride of Edward C. Steinle in Washington on September 25, 1889. The couple went to Evansville at once and subsequently lived at Franklin and Muncie. Upon the death of Mrs. Steinle’s mother in 1901, they returned to Washington and had lived here ever since. Two children were born of the union, Cecil, a son, having died at the age of five years.
Mrs. Steinle was born September 22, 1866, passing away in her 48th year. She was a woman that had built for herself a strong citadel of friendship. Patient and kind, of quick perception and warm impulse, she leaves at the closing of her helpful, busy and all too brief life, a great heartache and a great regret. She entered wholly in the activities of the First Methodist Episcopal Church and gave liberally of her means, time, and loving service for the advancement of that church’s good work. Truly a friend has gone out.
Marguerite Steinle 7 (ca. 1892), the second child the first child of Lettie and Edward Charles Steinle (ca. 1890), married -?- Ratcliff ca. 1912. It is reported that after her marriage she lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Nothing else is known about her descendants, if she had any.
Hiram Hendricks McCafferty 6 (11 December 1872-27 October 1922), the third child of John and Elizabeth McCafferty, was born and died in Washington, Daviess Co., Indiana. He married ClaraA Maria Davis-Jackson (13 November 1881-1 June 1938) on 6 March 1907 in Washington, Daviess, Indiana, the daughter of Delos Davis-Jackson and Laura Foster of Washington, Daviess, Indiana. Hiram is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, Washington, Daviess, Indiana. He attended Public School. Hiram was a Print Shop Owner in Washington, Daviess, Indiana. Their children: Charles Davis; Foster Jones; Lois Evelyn; Rosalie; Joyce.
Charles Davis McCafferty 7 (25 February 1908-26 April 1924), the first child the first child of Clara and Hiram McCafferty, was born and died in Washington, Daviess, Indiana. Charles was killed in a car accident at the age of 16, 6 miles east of Washington, Daviess, Indiana on Hwy. 5.
Foster Jones McCafferty 7 (22 July 1909-22 October 1975), the second child of Clara and Hiram McCafferty, was born in Washington, Daviess, Indiana. Foster gained his name by having the maiden names of both his grandmothers, Foster and Jones. He married Dorothy Pauline Smith (13 May 1912-15 April 1977) on 14 March 1931 in Minister’s Home in Mt.
