The following entry from Rockingham Co. Court Minutes was recently
submitted by Larry Shifflett:
ROCK. CO. COURT MINUTE BOOK #5, 1802-1806, PAGE 296:
"At a Court held for Rockingham County, Tuesday January 15th,
1805---------------- County levy for year of 1804--------------To Joshua
Chiflet for one old Wolf -$5.00"
This is the first instance I have seen where the Shiflet name is spelt with
the old French spelling. Has anyone else found any other occurences of
this? This reminds us that when we're searching for records, we should
search for the Chiflet spelling also.
