Records of the Overseers of the Poor,
Franklin Township, Bergen County, New Jersey
Overseers of the Poor 1784-1836
Franklin Township, Bergen Co., NJ

Photocopied 23 July 1993 by Ethel Kay Konight from the original ledger then
in the possession of the Mahwah Police Department, Bergen Co., NJ.

Transcribed April 2008 by Pat Wardell and Ethel Kay Konight.

Transcribers' Notes:

This ledger was in good condition considering its age. A few of the pages
were ragged on the edges, and there was a lot of faded ink.

The ledger was maintained over the years by many different people
displaying diverse levels of literacy. The handwritten entries, showing
various styles, differing clarity in penmanship, and differing abilities
of spelling, are sometimes difficult to interpret.

Spellings have been retained for names; some other spellings have been
modernized to facilitate easy reading (for instance, "Dito" has been
changed to "Ditto"; "Suport" has been changed to "Support"; "youse"
to "use"; "Justis" to "Justice"; etc.

Square brackets indicate a query or interpolation by the transcribers.
In these records, "Dr" stands for Debt or Debtor; "Cr" stands for Credit
or Creditor.  Generally, there is no punctuation used in these records
until about 1828.  Many of the entries, as noted, have large Xs drawn
through them.  The transcribers believe this to have been a method
used by the recorder to indicate that the transaction was paid, or
completed. We do not think the Xs  mean that the entry should be
considered deleted.

-------------------------

Franklin Precinct was a Bergen County, N.J. locality; called a "precinct"
prior to 1767 and after 1767 called "Franklin Township." It was named for
Provincial Governor William Franklin, son of Benjamin Franklin.
Franklin Township was formed by Royal charter on June 1, 1771 from area
taken from Saddle River Township. In 1797 part of its area was transferred
to Pompton Township. Franklin Township was incorporated on
February 21, 1798.  In February 1837 a large portion of Franklin Township
in Bergen County became part of Passaic County.  In 1844 a part of its area
was transferred to Washington Township; and in 1845 this same area was
restored to Franklin Township. In 1849 part of Franklin Township was
incorporated into Hohokus Township.
