Scope and Contents

This docket book kept from 1828 to 1830 records cases heard in an unknown, but possibly Steuben County, court. Entries include names of plaintiffs and defendants; dates of actions; final dispositions; and fees, damages and court costs. Most of the cases were decided for the plaintiffs. There were a few trials held at Harpending’s Inn, and a few were appealed. The towns named in the cases were located in Steuben County during the early nineteenth century; they are now in Schuyler County. The book belonged to the Cook family who kept farm accounts in the back during the 1830’s.
