Series 3
Legal and estate papers, 1828-1954
Box 4: folders 1-8; OP 1 and 2

Scope and Content Note

This series contains legal papers that relate to Barnsley's business affairs and to his property in Cass County. These papers include photocopies of his marriage license and various indentures and agreements. Also included are holograph copies of depositions taken in two of the court cases arising from Barnsley's business affairs. Other information about these cases can be found in Series 1, Correspondence. The remainder of the series contains records relating to Woodlands including land plats, mineral surveys, architectural sketches (perhaps of details of the manor house), and a visitor registration book that also contains lists of books distributed to Barnsley's heirs. These latter materials document the family's attempt to settle the estate while retaining possession of the land and house.
