At the end of this line are the following codes: The Volume RI1 is a record of inmates (1867-1903) Wright State University
The Volume RI2 is a record of Inmates (1893-1912). These records contain name of child, age, sex, birthplace, when admitted, when discharged, remarks.

CEMETERY RECORDS, INDEX (By Brien?) I believe this to be the author's name. This is a spiral bound composition book, 7" wide by 8½" tall. The hand printed title states, "Index to MONTGOMERY COUNTY, OHIO Records Volume 4 Cemetery Records of Miami Valley ." This entire book is handwritten in neat, very legible pen, three columns per page, 19 names in each column with page numbers. There appear to have been 209 pages in the actual book which is not here. But here is the index. Would be a good thing if we could find the book, check it out, type up the index, which is not yet in alphabetical order except for the first letter, and put it in the Montgomery County Library! The first surnames on Page 1 of the index are: Allen 1, Anderson 1, Archer 1, Adkins 7, Archer 7, Allen, Anderson 7, Archer 7, Anderson 16, Allen 19. Now all we have to do is match it with a Volume of Cemetery records! Want the job? PRICE: $5 Mntgomery County
