O.C. “Deaf Charlie” Hanks is noted as a rider with the Wild Bunch, notably helping in the Wagner, Montana train robbery in July 1901. He was killed the following year in San Antonio, TX.
Hanks had some interesting family connections as well. His stepfather, James Cox, was a fighter in the Sutton-Taylor Feud. A Taylor party that probably included John Wesley Hardin killed Cox in 1873. Cox’s son—Hanks’ stepbrother—was W.W. Cox, who became a major cattleman in New Mexico. It’s believed he helped finance the murder of Pat Garrett.
