A Justice of the Peace

In continuing to look through the references to Henry Vanmatre (also spelled Vanmetre or Vanmeter), I have found that he served as Justice of the Peace in Cumberland, Washington County, Pennsylvania in 1782 (elected 3 April 1782, History of Washington County).

A longer description of his election in February 1785 appears in the minutes of the Supreme Executive Council from Philadelphia:

Henry was later elected as Washington County Commissioner in 1788.

Other sources note that Henry also served as Greene County Treasurer from 1801 until his death.
