My Washington County Will Books Indexes went over well, and thought I would work on a set for another county – Clark County, Kentucky. Most of my research, for my family, has been in Washington, Marion, Garrard and Nelson counties. It is always interesting to research in a new county, since there are always new names to discover.
In the two county will indexes I have worked with I notice county clerks are terrible at spelling the same name the same way twice! And some of the handwriting is a bit difficult to decipher. Guess they never thought people would be interested in what they wrote so many years later!
Volume III includes 1,226 names listed. This is an all-inclusive, alphabetical listing of those listed in the Clark County Will Books Index, Books 1-13 for the years 1793-1853. Included is the description of the entry (Will, Inventory, List of Sales, Administrative Settlement, Allot Dower, Executors Settlement, Division of Estate, Guardian Settlement, Appraisement, List of Slaves, Agreement, etc.), the will book and the page number. Last names beginning with P–Y – there were no names beginning with U, X and Z.
Volume IV, below, includes A-Y – for those of you who have many family members in Clark County. You can use the search feature on your Kindle to find a particular name.
