When James More was appointed as Sheriff of Lapeer County, Michigan:
To James More
It was determined by the Board of County Canvassers at their meeting to canvass the votes given at the General Election holdin [sic] in the County of Lapeer and State of Michigan on the second day of November in the year one thousand eight hundred and fifty-eight that James More was duly elected to the Office of Sheriff of said county at said Election.
State of Michigan
County of Lapeer
County Clerk's Office
I Charles Rich clerk of said County do hereby certify that the above is a correct statement of the determination of the Board of County Canvassers, as appears of Record in this office.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed the seal of said county at Lapeer this 12th day of November A.D. 1858.
This is the document that I mentioned to the researchers at the Lapeer Co. Genealogical Society office (about two years ago) and couldn't find it until (January 2010). It had been hiding in plain sight. [The original held by my aunt in Flint, MI]
