John McCain (fl. 1838-1847) was a justice of the peace in Warren County, New Jersey.
The docket kept by John McCain, a justice of the peace, at the courthouses in Knowlton and Columbia, Warren County, New Jersey, dates from 1838-1847 and measures 0.01 linear feet. The court met once every one to two weeks to hear mostly small claims cases. In December of 1842 it moved from Knowlton to Columbia, Warren County, New Jersey. The volume contains entries for the plaintiff, defendant, and the date the debtor paid the overdue amount. It also includes a name index and notes ordering constables to collect overdue fines.
