  • Note:
    1. The minute book of the supreme court of NJ--commencing 1681, and nowin the vaults of the office of the supreme court at Trenton--presentsa curious trial of Daniel & Mordecai Howell in 1685 for shooting andcarrying away the hogs of William Cooper. They were indicted, triedand convicted, the court sitting at Burlington, and were fined fivepounds each. The trial, which was a protracted one, discloses thepeculiar manner of our ancestors in conducting such cases. Theidentity of the porkers was the turning point in the case, as the earshad been cut off, and the marks destroyed. But when Daniel Cooper,son of William, testified to having seen a dead hog on the back of oneof the defendants, before its ears were cut off, and identified it asone of his father's swine, there was no room for further doubt, andhence the conviction.
