Series III. Ohio Company Court Cases

Scope and Content Notes:

Series III consists of transcripts of court cases between George Mason, an agent of the Ohio Company, and parties owing debts to the Ohio Company. The cases date from 1750 to 1763. Examples of documents enclosed in the files include promissory notes and arrest warrants for the party in debt. The records are modern copies of court files created in Fredrick County, Virginia. They are arranged by the last name of the defendant involved.

Other materials chronicle land surveys and court cases involving attempts of the Ohio Company to obtain land in Maryland, Virginia, and Ohio. It is possible these transcripts were used in Mulkearn’s book George Mercer Papers Relating to the Ohio Company of Virginia, the authoritative volume on the Ohio Company.
