Card Index to all Ohio County Courts’ Case Files & Loose Papers, Part 6: 1857-1861

Volume 13, which covers 1857-1861 continues the series by continuing to publish an exciting group of Ohio County, Virginia/West Virginia, Record-the “Card Index to Ohio Co. Courts’ original case files and loose papers” housed at the West Virginia and Regional History Collection at West Virginia University. During the 1930s another massive project was undertaken to collect and partially index all the Surviving Ohio County, Virginia/West Virginia court cases, files, and loose papers , about 500,00 items, from every court: County, Circuit, Superior, Circuit Superior etc. from 1776-1930! An index card was made for each document showing the plaintiff and defendant or personal entry, the offense or subject, the envelope number at West Virginia University containing the original papers and a brief description of what documents are included in the envelope. These cards have been entered into a database and are being published for the first time!
