  Report of H. J. Strickler, Commissioner to Audit Claims of Citizens of the Territory of Kansas
Author: Strickler, Hiram Jackson
Date: 1859

Jared Chapman submitted this detailed claim (No. 49) for losses of property after he was forced to leave the territory "in fear of my life." Chapman lived in Franklin County. Each claimant had to submit an itemized list and have two witnesses attest to the losses claimed. Even though many of these claims were approved for payment, no funds were ever appropriated or distributed.
