Report of H.L. Strickler, Commissioner to Audit Claims of Citizens of the Territory of Kansas, contained in the U.S. Congressional Serial Set of congressiona and executive documents. Jared Chapman submitted this detailed claim (No. 49) for losses of property after he was forced to leave the territory "in fear of my life." Chapman lived in Franklin County. Each claimant had to submit an itemized list and have two witnesses attest to the losses claimed. Even though many of these claims were approved for payment, no funds were ever appropriated or distributed.
