1 H.W. HOWARD 1863-1864 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT LEDGER AND ACCOUNT BOOK REGARDING TAXES, TOLLS AND JUDICIAL ENFORCEMENT INCLUDING THE INSTALLATION OF A MADMAN TO THE STATE LUNATIC ASYLUM
EAST ORANGE NEW JERSEY NJ 1863 Manuscript Fair 
On offer is an interesting original relic of the Civil War being a handwritten account of a postal and tax collector and perhaps Justice of the Peace as he notes judicial orders and enforcement, H.W. Howard, records on 36 unnumbered pages taxes and tolls received, orders enforced and of other specific interest are the sale of boy and the incarceration of a man judged insane to the lunatic asylum and the disposal of his possessions to cover the costs of treatment: "December 31, 1863: Took Ambrose Disbro to State Lunitick Obsillum took property belonging to him one cow sold for 30.00, one stove sold for 6.00, 14 hundred hay to H. Howard 5.00, the remainder of hay sold to Terry Disbro, 4 acres of land not sold, two yok oxen 200, boy 50 = 2.50." There is another interesting notation about giving a family a warning to leave town and removing apart of them. Research suggests the diary is related to the East Orange, New Jersey area and the State Lunatic Asylum in Trenton. Many dozens of names are fully written and found in the East Orange census records. This compilation of records will prove a treasure trove to collectors and genealogists of the area. The upper left corners of the first 5 or 6 pages have been nibbled with a little loss. Overall Fair with the text Good+.
