Archives Edition – Series 100: A Stallion’s Family Tree

Series 100 in the Putnam County Archives, Stallion Records, includes the County Clerk filings for their registry via public notice. These interesting records range from 1887-1906, and include one from 1909. They come printed in the form of newspaper notices or handbills and typically advertise the horse’s pedigree, farm and former and present owners, physical description, and may include availability for stud along with its record of notable ancestors and offspring as featured in this notice for the blue ribbon winning, “Doctor Travis” of Tompkins Corners (Putnam Valley, NY).

Also, included in this post is a public notice of the Light Bay Clydesdale, King George that was printed in the Putnam County Republican in 1909 and used for his stallion registration the same year.
