Looking for any information on Orrin S. Rarick/Rearick who served as a deputy U.S. marshal for the District of Kansas during the early-mid 1880s. During this time, he made frequent trips to the Cheyenne & Arapaho Reservation in a law enforcemenet capacity. In the 1890s, he came to Oklahoma Territory and settled at Guthrie where he may have again served as a deputy U.S. marshal.

Any info is appreciated!

The following is excerpted from an article in The Atchison Globe 14 March 1885 p. 1. The story of the day was that a large group of boomers under a Captain Couch gave notice that, in defiance of the law, they intended to settle in the IT. Opposing them were troops led by none other than Major Benton, "one of the bravest men in the army who was with Reno in the Black Hills when Custer was killed, and six companies of the Ninth cavalry." The article goes on to note that "this evening Commissioner Spearman, Assistant United States Attorney Batton and Deputy United States Marshal Rarick reached this place [Arkansas City?] from Whchita and it is understood that blank writs of arrest will be made out and if the boomers cross the line . . . they are to be arrested and placed under bonds in the sum of $3,000."

Nancy Samuelson, in Shoot From The Lip, refers to an article that appeared in the State Capital, 25 January 1896, about the capture of Bill Doolin: "'Shook Hands With Bill: Captain Rarick Thinks Doolin Gave Himself Up.' This article claimed Deputy Sheriff Rarick, who had been a deputy marshal for years, said he had last seen Doolin in Arkansas City (Kansas) and that a friend of Doolin's had approached him and said Doolin wanted to turn over a new leaf and turn himself in"(p. 68). In an endnote Samuelson observes that "Deputy US Marshal Rarick is mentioned several times in the Army investigation report of the Cherokee Outlet opening. Rarick was in Arkansas City, Kansas, and was assigned to the District of Kansas."

I tried typing in Hannah Harper Rarick in the search option and only find this thread. Where exactly is it on the Oklahombres website?

Thanks!
