Program for July 21, 2014: Mike Sheriff - "US Marshals in Indian Territory"
Mike Sheriff of Norman has been a student of the Civil War and law enforcement in Oklahoma for over forty years. He will share some heroic tales of early day law enforcement in the Indian Nations of Oklahoma Territory at the Monday evening, July 19th meeting of the Edmond Genealogical Society (EGS) in the Edmond Museum. Since the US Marshal's inception in 1789 to today, Sheriff said, roughly half of the US Marshal or Deputy or posse members, who have lost their lives in the line of duty, were in Oklahoma. The speaker is a recognized authority on law enforcement in Indian Territory and the Civil War. He is a Life Member of Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS) as well as a docent with OHS and Fort Smith National Historic Site. In his work life, he serves as Superintendent Generation Deployment and Planner, Oklahoma Gas & Electric. I will share some stories of a marshals work in the twin territories of Oklahoma from 1870 to late 1890, Sheriff said. Some of these true exciting activities seem actually stranger than fiction.
Mike Sheriff graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, and from Oklahoma City University with a Master of Business Administration. He has worked for OG&E for more than forty years in various capacities, and is an expert witness for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Oklahoma Corporation Commission, and District Court.
The EGS meets on the third Monday evening of each month, with speakers on subjects of interest to genealogists; membership is open to anyone interested in historical or genealogical research. For more info on EGS, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~okegs/ or www.facebook.com/EdmondGenSoc
