Cochise County (AZ) Territorial Court Documents

Published by Cochise County (AZ) Clerk of the Superior Court

In May of 1881, just three months after Cochise County was formed out of southeastern Pima County, district court sessions began in Tombstone, Arizona. The 652 page collection contains brief notations by the district court clerk of matters and proceedings taken up by the judge – in the order they were presented. Aficionados of Cochise County Territorial history will enjoy "seeing" the characters of the day make their appearance in court – and getting a sense of the cadence of court business procedures from a time long past.
