Virtual Photograph Tour

   These are documents from the Elizabeth Fulton vs. James Crawford 1761 Judgement. She sued him for 100 pounds in damages for poisoning her when she was his servant. She became ill and could not work for 11 months.

   This is our continuing Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour. This document is Mechanics Liens Dockets No. 1 from the late 1800s. It is interesting to see the cost of supplies in the 1890s. In one of the entries, 800 feet of siding cost $18.00 (Page 135).
