Claim Your Ancestor #58: Blown Away & ---

Dear Students,
In helping you find your ancestors, I came across "Blown Away" being charged with larceny at the Federal Court in Fort Smith, Arkansas in the 1800s. 

 Have you ever heard of him? Was Blown Away his real name or is it an alias?  

Please notice his friend's name. 
 I am not going to type it here - I want you to decipher the handwritten document. 

The last page of these documents shows Blown Away's friend being sent to the Federal Penitentiary in Detroit.  

 You should definitely investigate.
