SERIES 5 - LEGAL AND FINANCIAL PAPERS

SERIES DESCRIPTION

        Series 5, Legal and Financial Papers, include various family records such as wills, deeds, receipts, and assorted official documents.  These papers are arranged alphabetically according to the family member with respect to whom the papers most clearly pertain.  Thereafter the papers are arranged roughly chronologically.
        Due to their size, some items from this series are housed among the oversized papers, designated OC 2000.1.  Among these oversized items are three passports issued to C. F. Himes, and the commission of George Himes as Lt. Colonel of the Pennsylvania Militia.
