Series IV: Augustus Porter Barnard, 1856-1911

Series IV contains correspondence, financial records, and legal documents belonging to Augustus Porter Barnard, son of John G. Barnard and his first wife, Jane Elizabeth Brand Barnard. The bulk of the series relates to the Porter family case (1884-1888), a legal dispute between two of Augustus Porter Barnard's cousins, in which he intervened. Other materials include documents related to settling the estates of two other relatives, Amaron Ledoux (1885-1886) and Augusta Porter Wiggins (1904-1905), and a small amount of Augustus Porter Barnard's personal correspondence.
