2 Excellent “Claims” for Property Destroyed by Confederate Raider John Hunt Morgan – Meigs County & Noble County, Ohio
Rebel Raider John Hunt Morgan terrorized over 17 towns in his raid through Ohio in the Summer of 1863. The 2 documents offered are as follows. Both are approximately 13 x 7 ½ inches and filled out in ink:

1). State of Ohio Meigs County – This document has a large title at the top “Morgan Raid Claims” below that “ Act of Ohio Legislature, passed April 26, 1869” The document is for the account of Henry Dyke who had a loss of $102 in “Property taken, destroyed or injured by the rebel forces, during the Morgan Raid of 1863, in Meigs County Claim No 86”. There are a number of signatures and finally at the bottom a Notary Public. A nice looking document in fine condition. Interestingly we checked the Meigs County records and the $102 was listed as: One Horse “…$100 and One “saddle cover” $2.50…

2) “Name of Claimant in full C. N. McCoy Post office Address Bern Noble County, Ohio

STATEMENT OF:

John Morgan by his command, at Nelsonville, Ohio. The value of the property so destroyed was at level, three hundred and forty six dollars.”

The document is signed by the claimant, C. N. McCoy and by the Justice of the Peace.

The 2 documents look great framed together along with a postcard of the historical monument marking the raid and a photo copy of Morgan in uniform. Each of the documents are priced at $350. If both are purchased, the pair would be $595.
