Indian Territory, Lot includes 2 issued pieces that are unrelated to each other. One is Form 155, a General Form of Indictment from Indian Territory, issued to a J. D. Cowling for larceny in 1904. Cowling stole a $151.25 check from the Indian Trading Company and cashed it. Cowling had a $500 bond for the criminal activity. Includes witnesses for the United States, as well as signatures from the United States Attorney of the Southern District of Indian Territory. The second document is Form 296 for the Recognizance for Appearance Before Court, issued in 1905 for Joe Harlin, who was charged with murder. Harlin had to appear personally before the United States Court in Indian Territory, and was indebted to the United States $2,500, as it appears he was bonded out by two men who provided the funds. Signed by the United States Marshal. Neither man appears to have belonged to a Native American tribe. Both documents are in Fine condition. Indian Territory, also known as the Indian Territories and the Indian Country, was land within the United States of America reserved for the forced re-settlement of Native Americans. Therefore, it was not a traditional territory for the tribes settled upon it. The general borders were set by the Indian Intercourse Act of 1834. The territory was located in the Central United States. Unique piece of criminal history from Native American territory in the early 1900s. (2)
