    Custodial history

    The two cash books were donated to the Haute-Yamaska Historical Society many years ago. Before moving to a new building in 2023, they decided to transfer the documents to our organization as it concerned our territory.

    Scope and content

    The series consists of primary source documents relating to the association between John Charles McCorkill and William Kenneth McKeown, who operated a law office in Cowansville under the name McCorkill & McKeown, advocates. It includes two big ledgers containing the financial entries related to their business.

    Physical condition

    The ledgers are in bad condition and we had to remove the binding on one of them as it was very contaminated.
