Nineteenth Century Bovina Records - a Sampling

I have just uploaded to my Flickr page 31 scanned documents from the Town of Bovina. You'll see several tavern licenses, a list of town accounts for 1840 totaling $165.88, the bill for surveying the town boundaries when Bovina was created (including a $10 math error in the surveyor's favor), Berry Shaw Miller's power of attorney allowing his father to vote for him in the 1864 Presidential election, a list of jurors from 1836 and the appointment of a new tax collector in December 1845, necessitated by the imprisonment of the incumbent, Edward O'Connor, for his part in the shooting of Undersheriff Osman Steele during the Anti-Rent War.

I hope to continue uploading more files as time allows. To see these documents, go to
