                                                          WPA Records 

In Rusk County, all probate records are in the custody of the county clerk. Probate case papers are kept in 123 steel file drawers in the county clerk’s vault. The papers of each case are in an individual file jacket, and cases are arranged numerically according to case numbers.

Since the transfer of territory from one county to another has affected probate jurisdiction and has determined the county in which the probate case should have been filed, a map and table of territorial changes are included herein. These records are affected by changes in the following counties: Harrison, Marshall, Nacogdoches, San Augustine, and Shelby.

These record indexes include the name of the deceased, minor or lunatic, date the case filed and the case number. This latter number is of utmost importance as you need it to research any particular case.
