Introduction to Saunders v. Dixon

Saunders. v. Dixon
Nauvoo, Hancock Co., Illinois, Justice of the Peace Court, circa 4 February 1844
 
Historical Introduction
In February 1844, Abraham Saunders sued Thomas Dixon for an unidentified complaint that was to be heard before JS as justice of the peace in , Illinois. On 4 February, JS subpoenaed William Harris, Royal P. Saunders, James A. Saunders, and Silas S. Saunders as witnesses to appear before him on 10 February. Because the subpoena apparently is the only extant case document, nothing else is known of the suit, including whether JS heard the case or if the parties settled out of court.
 
Calendar of Documents
This calendar lists all known documents created by or for the court, whether extant or not. It does not include versions of documents created for other purposes, though those versions may be listed in footnotes. In certain cases, especially in cases concerning unpaid debts, the originating document (promissory note, invoice, etc.) is listed here. Note that documents in the calendar are grouped with their originating court. Where a version of a document was subsequently filed with another court, that version is listed under both courts.
