Virtual Photograph Tour

   This is the Augusta County Court Clerk's Office naturalization document for Anthony Markle from Switzerland in 1855.

   This is a summons for Henry Downs from 1751. Mr. Downs was being summoned for a civil suit brought by John Davis who was suing Mr. Downs for 4 pounds and 1 shilling.

   This document is a page from the "Colored Marriage Register 1865- 1867," showing some of the earliest legalized African American marriages soon after the Civil War.
