4 Men Hanging- The Birth Of Ada

I’ve been asked again about the great hanging in Ada in the early part of the last century. So here it is again. This is a story of the birth of Ada, OK in the late 1890’s and the struggles of the ‘good’ people to overcome the remains of the old Indian Territory outlaws and renegades. A section of the town was known as “The Bloody Bucket”. It was a well known area where the very bad men of the old Indian Territory gathered. As law and order came to the new state, the outlaws chose Ada as the ‘hold’ where they could hide out from the law. It was such a bad place that even the law did not want to go there unless they absolutely had to go.
