Title: Capture of Drake
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

On Thursday last a party of horsethieves from Indiana were overtaken and captured at Gilman, in this county. The captured party proved to be the Drake family, father and two sons. One of the sons was recognized as Stephen Drake, murderer of William McCormick at Danforth, and who escaped from our jail over a year ago. He is now in jail, and will have his trial at the March term of our Circuit Court; as no amount of cunning on the part of the prisoner will out-wit the vigilance of Sheriff South.
