Anamosa Gazette, July 1, 1859, reprinted in the Dubuque Herald, July 6, 1859

The ANAMOSA GAZETTE of the 1st inst., says that on Tuesday previous, Sheriff Noble and Deputy Scott arrested a couple of counterfeiters-one in Marion, the other at Cedar Rapids-named Thomas W. Parsons and Edward Gillett, hailing from Maquoketa, Iowa. The evening previous, they made their appearance in Anamosa and succeeded in passing some ten dollars in counterfeit bills on the White River Bank of Vermont. Upon being searched, some $21 in counterfeit threes, on White River and a five on Hadley Falls Bank, Massachusetts were discovered in their possession. The fellows were committed to jail.
