Letter, Tho. Ewing, Jr. to Dear Sir [Wm. S. Reyburn]
Authors: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: November 23, 1858
In his capacity as attorney for H. B. Denman, who had just "bought of [John A.] Halderman the interest of the latter in the ferry, Ewing wrote Reyburn, Philadelphia, to encourage "an amicable settlement" to avoid taking their disagreement to court. The nature of their dispute was not entirely clear, but Ewing insisted that if not settled it could undermine the legitimacy of the ferry company's charter in the eyes of the soon to be constituted State government.

Authors: Sherman, Ewing & McCook
Date: April 4, 1859
Although unclear as to the exact nature of the litigation, this letter from the Leavenworth firm pertained to the taking of depositions in "the case against the steamboat 'Isabella.'" The "Isabella" was a side-wheeler which made regular runs to Sioux City during 1858, and in this case apparently came to the aid of the "Kate Howard" when ice forced her to "give up her trip."

Hoisington and Powell were hired as carpenters to build and repair for Grinter's ferry service.

Grinter married Annie Marshall, a Delaware Indian whose people had been relocated to the Fort Leavenworth Indian Agency in the early 1830s.
