    Seeking court case for John J Jacob v Blair Moran et al

    viva fisher Newbie

      How do I access 21.51.1 Records of U.S. District Court for Northern District of Virginia ca. 1829 (Records in Philadelphia)? I am looking for information about a court case, John J. Jacob vs. Blair Moran & wife & others, which was adjudicated by the Superior Court of Chancery at Clarksburg, (West) Virginia in late 1828 or 1829. The ruling required the sale of land owned by Blair Moran and his wife, Rebecca Mills Hurst Moran, at Short Creek, Ohio County, (West) Virginia. Notice of the land sale was published in Virginia Statesman, February 11, 1829, p. 3. It seems that relevant records could be held in the series: 21.51.2 Records of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District [of West Virginia]: Records of the Clarksburg Division, including minutes, 1819-69 and records of the clerk of the court, 1820-1952. According to the records summary, these are Textual Records (in Philadelphia). How do I access them or find out more about their contents? Thanks!
