Monroe County, West Virginia Abstracts


If you’re seeking information on Deeds (1799-1817), Wills (1799-1829), or Sim’s Land Grant Index (1780-1862) for this county, this is the place to look. Many think deeds are only a transfer of land from a grantor to grantee, but in genealogy it is so much more. They note the presence of possible census readings (with neighbors included). They normally name the grantor’s wife; many times they include families (settlements), siblings and their spouses, parents, neighbors, a new place of residence when they move and then sell, and much more. Probate records do some of the same. Index.
