Source:  RICHLAND SHIELD & BANNER (Mansfield, Richland Co., Ohio):  05 September 1896, Vol. LXXIX, No. 17 

The lists of prisoners, who will be transferred from the Ohio Penitentiary, has been furnished at last.  There are 150 of them and the transfer will be made between the 1st. and the 15th. of next month.  The prisoners have been measured at Columbus by the Bertillon system.  It is said that while a large number of the prisoners are first-termers, yet a number of them are old timers, and the authorities at the Reformatory will find that they are not exactly a bevy of Sunday School workers and were not there for a reward for good behavior.  The complete list is as follows:
