I found an interesting article about a piece of the rope that hung Cherokee Bill. It's from the Muskogee Phoenix, March 19, 1896, page 5:
---Post Master Berry, who returned from Fort Smith yesterday, brought back with him an interesting souvenir --- a piece of the rope with which Cherokee Bill was hanged at Fort Smith on Tuesday last. It was given to Mr. Berry by his uncle who is the U.S. jailer at Fort Smith.
