These bail bonds for Marshal Coffman and Samuel A. Coffman, also signed by Perry Fleshman, were issued on May 9, 1856. The bonds order Marshal and Samuel to appear before the court of Calhoun County (now Jefferson and parts of Shawnee and Pottawatomie counties) during the next court term to testify about an assault on Samuel by an unnamed party. These documents may be related to the Kansas Territory vs. Samuel Coffman for failure to keep the peace (#444893) and the Kansas Territory vs. Orville Thompson for the murder of Austin Coffman (#445717).

Date: May 9, 1856
