The C. C. Henking Collection consists of land patents, deeds, titles, abstracts of titles, and indentures dating from 1795 to 1861. Also included are tax receipts, maps, notes and certificates. Many of the documents are in French. They are of particular interest to this region because all of the properties are located in what is now the state of West Virginia. In addition to the register, a more complete description of the contents of each folder will be found in the box.
Special collections material is obtained from many sources and is intended primarily for research and educational purposes. Certain works may be protected by copyright, trademark, or related interests not governed by the department. It is up to the researcher to verify that they have permission to use these materials for publication or other activities.
