*****NEW VOLUME  Published Spring 2014*****
1848 Land Transfer Book
The Morrow County Genealogical Society has reproduced the Original 1848 Land Transfer Book. In order to preserve this book,
each page has been professional photographed. Faded lines/ names on each page have been read by magnifying glass and the
name inserted in book by page number. Many resources have been added to the book to help in research
such as: 1848 Map; history of old towns and townships,range, section information, road names, road numbers etc.
Morrow County was taken from parts of four other counties: Delaware, Knox, Marion and Richland Counties;
thus, names and locations in the book were originally in another county.
This is a 167 page spiral bound book, printed on 11 x 17 paper. (Ledger paper size) It is twice the size of a normal book.
Cost: $42.50 + $3.08 tax and $5.50 Postage & Handling.

About this publication: It was thought by the compiler (Betty Meier), that these folks were lost during the census periods as this home was not only for the poor, but also the sick and afflicted. (It was almost a hospital). Often times the Morrow County Home was their last home. These records show where most of these folks moved upon their discharge, or where they were buried . For example: a father from Indiana brought his son, a child, to an orphanage in Cleveland.
