Check-out the "Frank & Jesse James" topic posted on the Oklahoma Pre-1907 section, page four (4), on this site!
One of the most popular sources for information of this sort comes from "Oklahoma Treasures and Treasure Tales" by Steve Wilson - - which Dee Cordry notes on this Pre-1907 site (p.4)!

Jessie James was in and about the Indian Territory near Bennington, Cade, OK. I have a newspaper article stating he rode in one evening and went to the local minister's home and partook dinner with them. Gov./Chief Jones had given this minister the gold allotment money for safe keeping since he had heard the James Gang was coming into the Choctaw Nation to rob him of the same. One of the James Gang, at dinner, grabbed up the 9 year old son of the minister and asked him where the money was. Jessie told him to unhand the boy and said, "We don't steal pennies from preachers." Unknown to Jessie, the minister had hundreds, if not thousands, of gold coins buried in the chicken coop yard. Jessie's father or step father was a minister and Jessie respected a man of the cloth.
