Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The materials in this series are arranged alphabetically by type of record (financial, land, legal, and military). It is probable that these records were originally arranged by docket number, however, during subsequent processing, the materials were arranged in strict chronological order. During 2013 processing, materials were arranged into type of record first, then in chronological order.

No material was separated during 2013 processing.
