Appointments Commissioners of deeds

Kansas. Governor (1863-1865 : Carney)

This folder on Appointments Commissioners of deeds comes from the Correspondence series of the Governor Thomas Carney Papers. Thomas Carney was Kansas' second state Governor, serving from 1863 to 1865. He was born near Tipton, Delaware County, Ohio in 1824 and came to Kansas in search of better health care and new business opportunities. Thomas Carney and his business partner Thomas C. Stevens were the first to open a wholesale house in Leavenworth, Kansas. This file contains several letters from individuals of different states such as, New York, Massachusetts, California, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania requesting to either be appointed as Commissioner of deeds for the state of Kansas, recommending someone else for the appointment, or someone that resides within their city and county of said state. This is important because during the nineteenth-century Commissioner of deeds was vital in assisting with the acknowledgment of property located in a particular state. Furthermore, the Commissioner of deeds is unique to the United States. As of today, there are only four states in which still have a Commissioner of deeds, Kansas is not included.
