Ruth and Sam Sparacio
County court order books contain records of all matters brought before the court while in session. The information contained in these records may not appear elsewhere. The order books typically provide a synopsis of court cases in a relatively organized format. Records you may find include appointments of local officials and militia officers, records of legal disputes, appointments of guardians for minors, apprenticeships of minors authorized by overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and the register of free Negroes.
This volume contains entries from Orange County Order Book 6, 1754-1763 beginning on page 206 and ending on page 344 for courts held 25 March 1756 through 25 August 1757.
