This judicial case file contains a subpoena, arrest warrants, and an affidavit related to the charge against Clayton Baine, W. B. Oldham, John Lamar, and C. Bryant for trespass in Lykins County (now Miami County), Kansas territory between February and April of 1858. On November 23, 1858, John Ellis testified to the Second Judicial Court in Paola, Kansas territory that Baine, Oldham, Lamar, and Bryant had stolen timber from lands belonging to the Wea tribe. During the 1820s and 1830s, many Native American tribes were forcibly removed to lands west of the Mississippi River. When Kansas became a territory in 1854, the influx of settlers led to encroachment on lands promised to Native American tribes like the Wea.

Date: crime February - April, 1858
