I found a short article in the December 9, 1895 New York Times about one of
my ancestors having been arrested for stealing a number of bicycles. He was
arraigned at the Jefferson Market Court before a magistrate, and he was held
over for further examination the following day.
Of course this "crime of the century" was not important enough for the New
York Times to provide a follow-up, and I was wondering whether, more than 100
years later, there would be any records available regarding matters heard at
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
