The County Court Docket was kept by Judge Canfield Judson of Sharon, Connecticut. The beginning of the book is a table of contents for several pages; the table of contents list the names of the parties involved and the page number that the case is on in the book. The book appears to have been repurposed for a scrap book, but many of the newspaper clippings that were glued into the book have been removed but some still remain. At the back of the book there is a letter from an “F. Tallmadge” to his mother. It is believed that this F. Tallmadge is Frederic Tallmadge, but the letter appears to have continued onto a next page that is now missing.
