Got cabin fever yet?! Well we got lucky with the last snow storm, but it appears that there’s another one on the horizon. So bunker down enjoy the solitude and anticipate the excitement of our upcoming multi-estate auction scheduled for Saturday, March 21.
While housebound we’ve begun the sort, photographing and scanning processes of items that have already come in for the March sale. For the South Jersey enthusiasts, you’ll be walking down memory lane after viewing many of the beach and bay scenes from Long Beach Island, Atlantic City and Ocean City as well as other local beaches from the 1930’s through 1960’s.
In addition to these newly discovered photographs, original vintage maps from Ocean and Burlington Counties have also turned up.
We have further uncovered original documents that we believe are from the late 1800’s, listing the names of those exempt from the military (Seaman, Shourds, Willits, Sapp, Stiles to name a few) by the NJ Militia as well as the Draft Formula for Little Egg Harbor Township. Yeah, we’re not talking football drafts here folks. These documents have been tucked away for centuries and now you have the opportunity to own a piece of history!
Another interesting find is a Tax Bill from Bass River Township to a resident who’s address on the envelope was ‘Mathistown!’ The Tax Bill and envelope are dated 1907! To think this envelope and its contents have been tucked away for 108 years — that’s over a century ago!
‘Mathistown’ consisted of mainly farms between New Gretna and Little Egg Harbor and was part of the Great John Mathis’ estate dating back to the late 1700’s. The history of the Great John Mathis and ‘Mathistown’ can be found at the following link: http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/l/e/x/Wendy-M-Lex/PDFGENE8.pdf
We will continue to update you with our finds so keep following our blogs and watch for our announcement on the availability of the Live Absentee Bid Catalog.
