National Archives Identifier 2581095

This series consists of equity case files, usually involving disputes over property rights.

The case files may include the following types of records: bills in equity, supplemental bills, bills of complaint, affidavits, agreements, answers, amended answers, bonds, decrees, demurrers, depositions, exhibits, injunctions, joinders, motions for injunctions, motions for extensions of time, motions to dismiss complaints, notices of appeals and motions, opinions, orders including orders of referral, orders on motions and petitions, and orders overruling demurrers; petitions including petitions for restraining order, petitions for rules to show cause, petitions to distribute assets, petitions to produce documents and petitions to stay proceedings; praecipes, proofs of service, replications, reports of special masters, rules for attachment, stipulations, subpoenas, testimony, warrants and writs of certiorari.
