A little overview on what is contained in this
index, and what exactly I am indexing. These records include divorces,
murders, larceny, manslaughter, civil suits, vagrancy, and basically anything
you would go to Superior Court for, to put it bluntly, criminal behavior.
There are also cases of a more humane nature. For instance a memorial to
be dedicated to a bar associate after his death. Naturalization records,
notary public appointments, and more.
The majority of these cases are suits against
others for monies owed them. The index is alphabetical by last name of the
This index is being compiled from the loose
papers that were located in the courthouse storage building.
THESE ARE NOT TRANSCRIPTIONS OF THE CASES. When noted on
the record, I have included the books and page number that a case was entered.
These books may no longer be located in the courthouse, and these papers may
contain more information than was entered into the Civil Minutes or Final Record
I have read each case and provided as brief a
synopsis as possible, some were just too good to be short with. All names
of persons involved, even juror lists, have been included.
This project was discontinued by the courthouse
because it would take too many hours to complete; therefore, all of these
records were removed to an archives and will eventually be indexed by the court
system, but, they will only be made available to the court and court officers
and not the general public.
The numbering of the index has no chronological
meaning pertaining to dates, 01 is for the first box I was given.
