The original (1777) Ohio County (then VA), WV, covered all of the present-day counties of Ohio, Brooke, Hancock, Marshall, Wetzel, Tyler and small parts of Doddridge and Pleasants Counties. This book begins a new series designed to publish and index pre-Civil War primary records. Original index pages are reproduced here in full and include personal names, by year, with annotation for each entry. Entries are sorted according to 65 subject headings, such as: attorneys, bridge orders, constables, commissioners, business licenses, militia officers from 1777, ministers, notary publics, overseers of the poor (including bound out servants and children), sheriffs and deputies, surveyors, etc. This volume spans the first 100 years of the county. Mentioned are numerous women and some African-Americans--frequently absent from traditional county histories. Searching for names and possible family relationships is made much easier by the special "Personal Time Line" Index in which every name, place or subject is sorted by year and then subject, presenting more than 6,700 index entries.
