The Infamous Black Bird Southern Oregon History, Revised

Jackson County News: 1876

    ROBBERS DISAPPOINTED.--The chief of the Bureau of Statistics received, by this morning's mail, several returns from the collector of customs at Puget Sound, enclosed in an envelope which bore marks of rough usage, and contained the following endorsement: "Torn by robbers on Siskiyou Mountain, Jackson County, Oregon, August 10, 1876, 8:30 o'clock p.m." The robbers were, no doubt, in search of facts, not figures.
