Russell County, Virginia Law Order Book 10, 1833-1838. 

Donald W. Helton. 2007.

Law Order books consist of the corrected, transcribed clerk's notes of the court proceedings. As such, they give detailed information on individuals brought before the court, of jury decisions, and court justice's orders for county maintenance. The author has meticulously transcribed the court law order book noted above, and it is a treasure trove of information for the genealogist with family in Russell county during the 1830s. More than seven hundred families are represented in the court proceedings, and they constitute thousands of individuals who appear as either defendants or plaintiffs.
