April 1814 Writ of Venire
On March 22, Patrick Cassidy, the clerk of the court, had issued a venire writ to Deputy Sheriff Lemuel Currin, commanding him to summon 24 "good and lawful men" to the court on the first Monday of April to serve as grand jurors. Currin returned the writ on April 4. He had summoned Andre Fagot, Frederick Notrebe, John Larquer, Peter Lefever, Michael Peters, Morris Fountanno, Joseph Dardean, Tanas Racine, Charles Refeld, Hewes Scull, Seth Derickson, Christian Pringle, John Webster, John Kessler, Benjamin Ross, Richmond Peeler, Benjamin Fowler, Harold Stillwell, Jacob Barkman, Christopher Kauffman, Joseph Greenawalt, Anthony Wolf, James Lathem and Jacob Stanley.
Judges Francois Vaugine and Joseph Stillwell met briefly at the April 1814 term. No record of this term appears in the quarter sessions record book. In the common pleas record book there is a short note that no cases were heard because the parties had not been timely notified, and all already-existing cases were continued over until the next term.
