Sam Pasco out on bail

Lewis Olden of The Glen went before Judge Hodgson on Jan. 24, 1910 and swore out a warrant for Alvin "Sam" Pasco who was charged with assault in the third degree. Sheriff Smith served the summons. Pasco gave bail in the sum of $500 to assure his appearance before the next Grand Jury. The bail money was provided by John McPhillips and Jay Pasco of The Glen.

(Note...Sam Pasco was the bad-boy hero of the North Country. He was shot in the back and killed by a sheriff's deputy in April of 1918 when he was running from the law after he had shot and killed his cousin's husband, Orley Eldridge in Thurman. He is buried under a boulder in the Thurman Pasco Cemetery.)
