My new book, From Gangs to Gangsters, A Sampling of Oklahoma Crimes, 1907 to 1940, is now available at Craighead’s or from the Bryan County Genealogy Library and Archives in Calera. You may order one from the library at P. O. Box 153, Calera, OK 74730-0153. Cost is $25 + $3.50 shipping and handling. Call 580-434-5848 if you have any questions. This book includes a variety of local crimes, from bank robberies to axe murders. Find out how Mrs. Bayse killed her step-daughter, her mother-in-law, and then her step-son…and almost got away with it. Read about the inmate who was allowed to leave McAlester prison each Sunday to attend church. Discover the 1908 fine for “using abusive language” and the prison sentence for stealing chickens. You may also find that your relative was a witness, juror, attorney, marshal, victim, or criminal. I hope you enjoy From Gangs to Gangsters!
