Would anyone have any more information on this? I am interested in who the "Mr. Margison" was.

The People vs Edward Tracey
The Defendant and one Mr. Sullivan, were indicted at a former term for kicking, cuffing, pulling, hauling and beating a Mr. Margison, somewhere in Mongaup Valley. A civil suit for the same fisticuffing had been previously tried and a verdict of sixty dollars given to the Kick-ee against the Kick-ors.
The Defendant Tracey plead guilty, but claimed as matter of mitigation that the Prosecutor, Margison, had spoken disrespectfully of his mother and that as a dutiful and affectionate son, he felt bound to stand up for his parent and in doing so, knocked the prosecutor down.
The court in view of the circumstances of a verdict in the civil suit and the provocation, fined him ten dollars.
