This folder on Criminal Matters comes from the Correspondence series of the Governor Charles Robinson Papers. The documents here include transcripts of the testimony, examination, and proceedings against Conk Risk and William Pickles from the city and county of Leavenworth, Kansas. The documents include testimonies from victims in Missouri and persons who could account for the two individuals. According to the documents the two individuals are being accused of theft of clothes and money and threatening to shoot members of the Missouri family. This is important because it describes the process that was involved to press charges during that period. Charles Robinson was Kansas' first state Governor, serving from 1861 to 1863. He was born in Massachusetts in 1818 and headed the New England Emigrant Aid Company's first colony to Kansas Territory in 1854.

Creator: Kansas. Governor (1861-1863 : Robinson)
