Corporate Author : Vermont. County Court (Windham County)
Title : Windham County Court dockets, 1867-1869.
Physical Description : 5 volumes.
Summary :

Windham County Court dockets, covering five terms: April 1867, September 1867, September 1868, April 1869 and September 1869. The docket for April 1868 is missing. Each docket is divided into the "Old Docket" (cases from the previous court sessions), "State Docket" (cases to be reviewed on a state panel) and the "New Docket" (new or transferred cases for the current court session). Lawyers/representatives for both the prosecution and the defense are listed or noted in the margins, and often, the outcome for each case has been noted by Judge William H. Jones. The third book (Sept. 1868) contains an interesting section upside down on the last pages of the notebook: naturalization notes for 20 individuals. The notes contain names, ages, country of origin and reasons for naturalization. Many of the naturalizations are for Irish immigrants who served as soldiers for the Union during the Civil War.
