In the Virginia courts the clerks would regularly write up different documents on the same page. At the top of one of the pages of Thomas Jackson's documents was another matter which normally wouldn't be of interest except for the fact that it indicates that one of the witnesses was James Madison. Research might be able to establish if it was James Madison our fourth President though Mr. Madison did live in Orange County, Virginia so it is possible that our witness here is the then future President James Madison.
