As near as I can figure Chales Stanley Bagg was born in 1816 at either Sotos or Sotos Point, NY (both were shaker colonies.

I'm certian he was a Montana legislator (and lawyer) our of Deer Lodge and left for Omaha where he became a bogus physician

He married Rachell Shurtz in 1839 but it seems that fell apart. He also married Carrie Howard, seemingly in Leadville in 1879. She appears as his wife in the 1880

Colorado Census erroneously listing his age as 43 (he would have been 63).

Charles Bagg died in Los Angeles in 1892. while I'm sure this is Doc I've ordered some NARA archives that should settle it.
