Title From Deputy US Marchal to Flotsam and Jetsam
Description The story does not end with the exit of Clawson. On paper, he was still the legal administrator of the Joseph Christiansen estate. Hannah Joe appealed to the District Court to have Rasmus Clawson removed as administrator of her late husband's estate, and to have herself appointed in his stead. The court issued a citation demanding that Rasmus Clawson appear in court to defend his position as administrator. Joseph Judd, Sheriff of Sanpete County, hunted for the missing man. Unable to find the deputy marshal, the sheriff served the citation on Clawson's wife in Ephraim, On Hay 9, 1898, Judge Jacob Johnson issued a decree in which he declared that Rasmus Clawson was Rasmus Clawson as administrator and qualified Hannah Joe Christiansen in his place. When the game of hide and seek had ended, at least one person, Hannah Joe, found a measure of satisfaction. Three Ephraim men who had served as Clawson's bondsmen were required to pay the Christiansen estate $3,200. 'In Mayfield, women were known by their own and their husband's given names. Sources: This tale in its essential details was told to me by Lloyd Christiansen of Manti- One of Lloyd's sources could have been Matt Warner, one of Butch's gang, who in later years lived openly in Manti. The writer's imagination supplied the missing pieces as indicated, Mr.. Christiansen graciously provided me with a copy of the citation for Rasmus Clawson to appear in court to defend his position as administrator of the estate of Joseph Christiansen* Also given me was a copy of the decree of the District Court issued by Judge Jacob Johnson removing Rasmus Clawson as administrator of the Joseph Christiansen estate and appointing Hannah Joe Christiansen in his stead. 63
