In January 2003, the children of Judge Richard Hartshorne donated four boxes containing their father's papers, correspondence, photographs, diaries, certificates and ephemera and on folder of material of his grandfather, John Hartshorne (1801-1878), treasurer of Newark. These items were integrated into the collection in October 2004.
