Rockville Republican, October 26, 1933 

  • “Despite all the warnings Gypsies continue to ‘gyp’ Parke County people. Thursday last one man and four women stopped at the home of R. F. Ogden, southwest of town, and asked for a couple of nails. Mr. Ogden accompanied one of the women to get the nails. Talking volubly she got close enough to him to pick his pocket and secured a $20 and a $10 bill. 

  • Earlier in the day the Gypsies robbed Albert Shuler, who has a filing station in Marshall, of $8. Schuler formerly operated a filing station in northeast Rockville. 

  • Sheriff Moore and Deputy Smith chased the Gypsies to the south but they eluded them. Sheriffs of Putnam, Hendricks and Owen Counties notified the officials here that the same party had been working their counties.”
