Custodial History

B0143-98: The register had been in custody of a private citizen who obtained it at a garage sale in Orange County, New York. In 1994, the state stopped the planned auction of the document and was granted an injunction against its sale or transfer until ownership was resolved. On December 4, 1998, in a pre-trial settlement, an agreement was reached that the State Archives was the rightful repository for the document.
