Orange County, Virginia Order Book Abstracts, 1755-1756
Ruth and Sam Sparacio
County court order books contain records of all matters brought before the court while in session. The information contained in these records may not appear elsewhere. The order books typically provide a synopsis of court cases in a relatively organized format. Records you may find include appointments of local officials and militia officers, records of legal disputes, appointments of guardians for minors, apprenticeships of minors authorized by overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and the register of free Negroes.
This volume contains entries from Orange County Order Book 5, 1747-1754 beginning on page 69 and ending on page 206 for courts held 28 January 1755 through 26 February 1756.
