P. E. Connor legal agreement

P. E. Connor legal agreement

Dates: 1873

Handwritten legal document in which Thomas Mathews, as administrator of the estate of Edward Lavalle, gave his rights to Connor to 200 feet of the Titus Mining Claim in Little Cottonwood Mining District, Utah. In return, Connor was to institute legal proceedings to clarify title to his property and return to Mathews 1/4 of any value recovered. The agreement was later amended by Mathews (1875, March 20); he assigned his rights to J.P. Taggart, an attorney, to defray Taggart's claims against the Lavalle estate.
