Early Settlers of Montgomery County, Ohio Volume 3


Genealogical Abstracts from Marriage and Divorce Records 1803-1827, Early Deeds Recorded Late, Election Abstracts, Obituary of an Early Settler

This volume is the third in a series, which attempts to piece together a substitute "census" for the early Montgomery County researcher. Most of the source material for these abstracts came from the Archives of Wright State University. The marriage records section of this book includes a list of names and denominations of the ministers who performed the rites. Election records give jurisdiction of a Justice of the Peace; knowing the township in which the Justice served may identify a family's location. Supreme Court records provide divorce petitions and other cases of genealogical interest. Deeds Recorded Late includes deeds which were not registered for many years, until the land was sold or divided among heirs, with 1816 selected as the cut-off date of an "early deed." Each section is arranged in chronological order. The every name index includes surname variations.
