My sister's husband's mother use to tell me stories about the gypsies.
When they came to town, people would have to really watch their animals and other possessions very closely.
The gypsies would steal anything not nailed down.
That is how they survived, by stealing..............people at the turn of the century would litterally shutter their windows and bring their smaller
animals inside while someone would have to stand guard in the barn all night with a shot gun for fear of losing their cattle.
Normally while I am not in agreement with persecuting any group, Grandma as I fondly called her said the gypsies were a real gang like bunch of
thieves. They refused to work and would steal and murder in order to survive. They were very lawless, lazy and ruthless bunch.
Just old stories I remember told to me 45 years back.
