Cash Book No. 1, Sheriff, Meigs Co.

This page contains a transcription of Cash Book No. 1, kept by the Meigs County Sheriff from 1904 through 1908. It is apparently a record of the amounts owed to the Sheriff for room and board for the prisoners in his charge. I have also interspersed newspaper items related to the various prisoners.

City Prisoners 1906

Jan 11  Morris Culbert                  Jan 16
Jan 11  One tramp
Jan 19  One drunk

1/18/1906 The Leader

Morris Colbert was before Mayor Webster Friday morning on the charge
of being drunk and disorderly. Colbert was at the opera house the
night before, and after several encounters with Manager A. V. Howell
the latter assisted Watchman Casto in taking him to the county jail.
Colbert was fined $5 and costs, and was sent to jail until the bill
is settled in full, the entire amount being $11.65.

This was Mayor Webster's first case, and it looks as if the "lid will
be on" as far as Pomeroy is concerned when it comes to handling law
breakers in the mayor's courts.

2/22/1906 The Leader

Samuel Selbe, of Burlingham, was taken in under the protecting wings
of Marshal Arnold Saturday evening for being drunk and disorderly, and
Monday was given $5 and costs by Mayor Webster, the entire bill amounting
to $10.35. Selbe's father keeps a boarding house at Kerrs Run, and he
tried to clean out the ranch with the above result.

Thomas Congalton, of the Fourth Ward, was given the same amount Monday
morning for being drunk. Both paid up and went away happy.
