Researching Woodson H. Morris b. November 08, 1848, Christian Co., KY. Family in Newkirk, Kay Co., OK by 1900. A wealthy landowner, he was convicted for murdering Finis Cassidy on April 6, 1907 and sentenced to life at Newkirk. Woodson died September 01, 1916 assuming at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlister, OK where he is listed in the 1910 census.
Would like to have copies of the court documents pertaining to this event or newspaper articles.
Wondering if the local historical society may be able to help and/or a researcher for the courthouse.
