______________________________________________
*"In searching some of the older records in the Town Clerk's Office at Hempstead, N.Y., I came across a bundle of papers which are apparently the Court Minutes of Justice William Mott, and which give a record of his acts while in office a period of over 30 years, from 1793 to 1828. The papers a5re arranged in small book form, sewed together, and each bundle is marked with a letter, from A to N, evidently for reference, as there is also an index, which, however, I found to be somewhat incomplete. The matter contained in these papers consists mainly of the petty trials in Justice's Court of the period, but there are a few marriages, which I think may prove of interest to genalogists, as they are probably unknown. I therefore copied off all the marriages to be found in the records, and enclose a copy of same herewith. There is also a Marriage and Birth Register, beginning in 1847 and ending in 1849, which, as it antedates the present existing Vital Records by some 35 years, contains valuable data. (Sgd) George D. A. Combes."
