I actually have those records as it was April 22, 1889 rather than 1869. The contempt was talking with the jury in a murder trial. The trial was William F. Hardin who was cleared of the murder charge.
What I am searching for is two or more things. First was this my Finney Myers as the next day in court was Jacob Myers in the same court for a larceny charge.
Next I am searching for where is was born and am I on the right trail.
Can you offer help please. I have searched for years and with almost no luck period. I have spent days searching and many phone calls and letters. I can give you my 800 number if you like and feel you might have ideas please.
