Charles Dill SPACE (son of Robert SPACE and Henrietta DILL) enlisted in the Regular Army at Cleveland, OH on Aug 9, 1870 and served in the 6th Cavalry, F Troop at Fort Griffin and Fort Richardson in Texas and in Wichita, KS until May 8, 1872 when he deserted from a camp near Ft. Hays, KS. His whereabouts after that are unknown until 1880, when he was found buying property in Belton, MO where he established and operated one or more feed mills. He later moved with his family to Sumner Co., KS and made his living with his family-owned threshing outfit.
