The Guthrie Daily Leader, June 11, 1896
Ardmore, Indian Territory
Seth Morris, a wealthy stockman who killed Albert Crow at Fox, Indian Territory, some 30 miles west of this city, a few weeks ago, was captured by deputy Marshals in the Table Mountains, near that place yesterday. Morris resisted arrest and was shot in the arm and one bullet grazed his neck. He was taken to Purcell for preliminary hearing. The Crows live near Morris and have a bad reputation in the neighborhood for branding other peoples stock. Crow met Morris one day and accused him of circulating these reports, threatening his life and punching him with his gun.
