The Catskill Recorder January 29, 1875, Page 3

....Something over a year ago Mr. Albertus Bogardus, formerly of this village but now residing in Michigan, hired a lad named Cargill, 15 or 16 years old, to go West with him, obtaining, as he says, the boy's father's consent. The lad did go, and was in Mr. Bogardus' employ for some time, but is now working for another party, and is so well satisfied that he refused to return home, though Mr. Bogardus offered to pay his fare. Being on a visit here, Mr. Bogardus has been put to some annoyance by Thomas Cargill -father to the boy- who is a miserable creature, and who threatens to prosecute Mr. B. for abducting his hopeful, alleging that the lad was taken from home without his, the father's consent. It is the general opinion that young Cargill would be infinitely better off anywhere than at home.
