Found in 1 Record:
The Anti-Horse Thief Association was a grass-roots organization of U.S. citizens that emerged in the 1850s as a vigilance body for prevention of theft, especially horse stealing. It remained active in the early 1900s, with membership bodies in many states and counties. This minute book of the Association's Hughes County, Oklahoma unit (Subordinate Order No. 179) contains its minutes from December 1911 to May 1912, and lists names of the unit's officers and members.
