FFOH MARION-01: D160: MARION COUNTY FAMILY GENEALOGIES-TERRITORIAL DAYS TO THE PRESENT.  By the Marion Area Genealogy Society.  Published in 1980.  1981.  [From the Foreword - This book is a permanent record of a great number of persons who have been residents of, or who have associated with, the part of Ohio which is now Marion County.  Although several histories of the County have been published, this book is the first attempt to record detailed information concerning ancestors and descendants of the many persons listed on its pages.  The relationships of the various members of each family group are clearly shown; the data is of great value to anyone searching for family roots.]  627 6 by 9" pages, indexed, hardbound, Price $70.  Marion County was formed from Delaware County in February of 1820.  Delaware had been formed from Franklin County in February of 1808.  The county seat is in Marion, Ohio.  The book begins with several excellent maps explaining the development of the state.  Parts of Marion County were removed from it in 1845 with the formation of Wyandot County and diminished again with the 1848 formation of Morrow County, but increased by the addition of a part of Delaware County in 1848.  The book overflows with genealogies, charts and lineages.  This is the book every genealogist wishes each county would publish.  Literally hundreds of people are all neatly tucked into the text, along with their grandparents, parents, siblings, children and grandchildren.  The index begins on page 553 and goes to page 627 in small print.  This index is your key to unlocking the genealogy embodied in the text.  There are 10 Abbotts in the index, and they appear on only five pages of this book, but the information is stunning and links the Abbott family to all the following families:  Ailes, Bender, Bradshaw, Colabuano, Cook, Fain, Grimes, Honaker, Horn, Ison, Jackson, Springer and Thomas.  
The index is by surname, thereunder by first name and page.  Saves a lot of space because the index for the Abbotts fills up only 5 lines in the index: [* indicates over ten lines.]  Other surnames with five or more lines in the index are:  Adams, Aiken, Albritton, Aldrich, Allen, Almendinger, Althouse, Anderson*, Arbaugh, Armstrong, Arndt, Augenstein, Austin Bader*, Baker *, Barnes*, Bartram, Baxter, Beaver, Beers, Bell*, Beringer, Berry, Bibler*, Biggerstaff, Bish, Black, Boldt, Boring, Bosley, Bottenfield*, Bowman, Boyd, Boynton, Bricker, Bridge, Brim, Brinker Brocklesby, Brown*, Brundige, Bryans, Burnett, Burris*.

[A Word to the Wise is Sufficient!]  Remember, when reading old handwriting, it is often difficult to tell whether a specic letter is a capital L or an S.  Try the name both ways.  Then look for a name such as Smith that would make no sense spelled Lmith or a first name such as Lucille that would make no sense spelled Sucille and compare the actual form of the letters.  Trying to follow the flow of the pen can help too, as Smith almost always starts at the bottom and Lucille would start nearer the top of the line.]
Guardian bonds are listed in here with the children's names for which they have been appointed their guardian, as well as the names of the guardian.  This is good, because at the court house these papers are most often listed only under the name of the guareian.  Surnames listed here have four (,) or more than four (#) first names listed:  Adams 5, Allen 8, Anderson 14, Anselment, Armstrong 5, Augenstein 5, Ault 5, Bain 5, Baker 21, Baldwin 5, Baringer, Barnhart 6, Batzly 5, Behner 6, Bell 10, Bennett 13, Berry 12, Biggerstaff 5, Blocksom 6, Blow, Boles, Bonham, Book, Booth 5, Boothe 6, Bower 9, Boyd, Brady 10, Briggs 7, Britten 6, Britton 5, Brown 14, Bryant, Busby 5, Butler 6, Campbell 8, Carpenter, Carter 6, Clark 33, Coleman 5, Conklin 8, Corn 7, Crow, Davis 23, Decker, Delaney 5, DeWitt, Diebert 8, Drake, Dunkelbarger 6, Durfee 7, Dutt, Essex 5, Fetter, Fisher 9, Folk 5, Fowler 7, Fred(e)rick 5, Ganow 5, Garberson, Gast 6, Gebhart 6, Geiger 7, Gillespie, Godman 6, Gooding 5, Gorton 12, Green 5, Griffith/s, Griswold 5, Guthery 5, Hainig 5, Halderman 9, Hardy 8, Harmon 7, Harruff, Harvey 16, Hauberman 5, Hawkins, Henderson 7, Hipsher 5, Holdaman, Holderman 7, Holmes 9, Hopkins 11, Hord, Hoxter 5, Huggins 6, Hugh/es 5, Hull 7, Hullinger, Idleman 8, Irey 12, Jacoby, Johnson 25, Jones 18, Keckley 6, Keese, Kellogg 5, Kendrick 7, King 8, Kinnear, Klinefelter, Knapp 7, Kramer 5, Kreaner, Kuhn 4, Kull, Landon, Laur 6, Lawrence, Lee 9, Leslie, Lewis 6, Linsly, Little 13, Lucas 8, Manly 5, Mansan, Martin 9, Mayer, Melvin 5, Messenger 7, Miller 32, Mills 5, Mily 6, Mitchel, Mock 8, Moore 10, Morris 8, Morrison, Mounts 6, Mouser 6, Moyer 5, Myers 17, McKinstry, McWherter 5, Neff 6, Norton, Owen/s 5, Pain 5, Parker 5, Patten 9, Peters 6, Phillips 6, Pierson, Plotner 6, Pomtious 5, Porter 5, Powell 6, Rayl/e 6, Reed 10, Retter/er 5, Rhoads 11, Riley 12, Roberts 5, Robinson, Ro(d)gers, Ruby, Rush 5, Russell 7, Search 5, Seibert, Shaw 6, Sherman 5, Sifritt 5, Slawson 6, Smith 29, Snyder 10, Southwick 6, Sprague 13, Squibb 9, Stanton 6, Stearns, Strine, Talmadge 5, Tavener 5, Tharp 6, Thew 5, Thomas 11, Thompson 7, True, Twombly 5, Tyler, Ulsh 11, Uncapher 10, Underwood 6, Vanhouten 5, Virden 5, Walker 9, Walter/s 8, Walton 4, Washborn 8, Waters, Watkins 6, Welch 6, White, Wickizer 5, Willard 5, Williams 32, Williamson 7, Wilson 13, Winslow 4, Wolff, Wood 13, Wynn 8, Yager 6, Young 17 and Zuck,.  PRICE: $20
