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

William H. P. Bristow operated a store in Easton and on September 15-16, 1856, the items listed in his claim (#183) were taken by a Lindsay Greeming who was in a territorial militia company commanded by H. C. Dunn. The claim provided a very detailed list of fabric and clothing that was taken from Mr. Bristow's store. 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.
