Scioto: Created in 1803 from Adams County. County Seat: Portsmouth. Courthouse: 602 7th St., Portsmouth, OH 45662-3948 (614) 353-5111.

YOGSOH SCIOTO-01:  SOUTHERN OHIO TAXPAYERS IN THE 1820s [FOR] SCIOTO, LAWRENCE AND PIKE COUNTIES.  By Heritage Research, compiled by Marilyn Adams, 1981, 59 8" by 11" pages, cardstock cover, wrapper-style, stapled.  This index to more than 4,000 taxpayers from these three counties is based on the following tax duplicates.  For Scioto County they used 1823: land-tax list and the 1826-28 both land and chattel lists.  For Lawrence County they used 1822 land-tax list and the 1828 both land and chattel lists.  For Pike County they used the 1823 land-tax list and the 1826 both land and chattel list. 
Your surname may appear more than once on a list because the author could not determine if, because the name was the same, may not mean the person is the same.  [NOTE: The Scioto County duplicates present a special problem in that the original official sometimes wrote Smith, A. John for John A. Smith, but he was not always consistent in that either. Determine surname, then please check both A. John and John A. as it was impossible to determine which order was correct.]   There are a lot of names in this book--25 or more names per column, three columns on a page and 59 pages will give you a good shot at finding out if your ancestor owned any land or chattle (personal property like horses or cattle) anywhere in these three counties.   Sample entries in the book are given with an explanation as to their meaning.  
Surnames with four entries are marked with a (,) but if they number five or more first names they are marked with the number as (#).  Surnames are   listed here: Adams 9, Allison, Anderson 7, Andre 5, Andrews 7, Armstrong 7, Austin, Baccus, Baker 6, Barber 8, Barger, Barn(e)s 5, Barrett, Beauchamp, B(ec/ee)kman 10, Bennett 24, Blank(e/i)nship 9, Bonser 8, Boswell,  Bowen 7, Bower/s 5, Bowman, Boy(n/ing)ton 6, Bradford, Brammer 8, Brewer 6, Briggs 5, Brown 24, Bruce, Brumfield, Bryan 5, Bryant 5, Buck, Bull 5, Bumgarner 7, Burk/e 6, Burner 5, Burris 8, Burt 14, Butcher 5, Campbell 8, Canter 5, Carpenter, Carrol/l/Carrel/l 6, Carter 8, Chaf(f)in 6, Chapman 6, Chenoweth 12, C(e/i)ssna 6, Clark 26, Clay, Clingman 11, Cock(e)rel/l 7, Co(a)l/e 8, Collier 10, Collings, Collins 9.

Taxpayers of Scioto County 1809-1820;  Sample:  Campbell, William, X marks the spot under West column under the years, which means his land is a part of the Virginia Military District.  X also marks the spot indicating he paid his taxes in those years, an asterisk* under 1820 denotes he was a non-resident in 1820-the only year that they recorded that information.  The years marked with an X for paid taxes are 1809-10, 1811, 1812, 1813, 1814, 1815, 1816, 1817, 1818 and 1819. 1820 is not marked with an X.

Supreme Court Records 1809-1820; Page 157:  William Martim vs Elizabeth Martin-Divorce:  4 Dec. 1816.  On 27 January 1814 he filed, said Elizabeth has more than 5 years been absent, treated him with extreme cruelty and neglect.  She summoned, didn't appear, divorce granted.
Supreme Court Jurors 1811-1820; Lists of jurors summoned for duty.  Just names, no details, but he had to be there to be sworn in, so it does establish residency and date.

Chancery Record 1839-1845; Divorce Cases Before 1851; and Miscellaneous Records.  Most of these are complicated land division records which would take up too much paper to list here. Lots of names and details!  There were morgages back then they couldn't pay either!  Banks sued, Insurance Companies sued and everybody you owed money to tried to sue you when a relative died if you were in the said deceased's will.  The divorces are some really sad stories.  The men tended to drink too much and abandon their wives and children for parts unknown, but the women were not pillars of virtue either.  Samle: Page 206.  Elmore Welsh vs Roana Welsh.  2 Apr. 1849.  Petitioner states they married in 1838 in Jackson County, and they lived together until Feb. 1847.  In Oct. 1847 she committed adultery with _____ FOX and David MURRAY and Benson (?) LAIR and others. She is now a resident of Indiana.  Divorce granted.

YOGSOH SCIOTO-10:  SCIOTO COUNTY, OHIO, 1880 OHIO CENSUS INDEX.  By Mr. & Mrs. Ivan R. Scott. 1975.  This index was copied from the filmicrofilm.  Some pages of the original census film were not readable and ofby necessity have been omitted.  74 pages.  These names were put in alalphabetical order.  They share a surname, but are not necessarily related.  You will find the surname, the first names, [a column of numbers not identified, might be the microfuilm roll number?] plus the ward or township, and the number of the family (not the page number).  Surnames listed here have five (,) or more than five (#) first names listed with them.  Adams 24, Alexander, Alard, Allen 14, Allison 6, Alt, Anderson 13, Andre 9, Appler, Arnold 12, Artis 7, Ashley 6, Baker, 27, Ball 14, Barbee, Barber 12, Brlow, Barrett , Batterson, Beatty 6, Bell 7, Bender 6, Bennett 31, Berndt, Bishop 7, Blair 9, Bond, Boren 9, Bower 15, Bowman 6, Bowser, Boyd, Boyer 14, Boynton 6, Brant 7, Bratling, Briggs, Brooks, Brown 14, Bryant, Burk 7, Burke 6, Burns 7, Burt, Bush, Call 11, Campbell 7, Canter 21, Carpenter 9, Carter 13, Chaffin 6, Chatham, Clark 28, Clifford 11, Cline 7, Coburn 10, Cole 22, Colegrove 11, Coleman 11, Collins 9, Colwell 6, Combs , Cook 26, Cooper 18, Coriell 13, Cox 12, Crabtree 34, Crane, Crawford 6, Crow 6, Crull 10, Culp 9, Cunningham 9, Daum 6, Davis 48, Dawson 7, Dean, Deaver 7, Delotel 7, Dever13, Dill 6, Dixon 7, Dodds 8, Dodge 10, Doerr, Doyle 6, Duncan, Dunlap 8, Dunn, Edwards 10, Elliott 13, Ellis, Emrich, Evans 22, Farley, Finney, Fisher 16, Fitch 8, Flack 6, Flannigan, Fleming, Flowers, Ford 7, Foster 10, Fout 5, Fox, Fuller 7, Fullerton 8, Funk 7.  I'm stopping here.   The book has another 50 pages, but since it is alphabetically arranged, it is easy enough to look them up yourself.  Variations in the spelling makes it hard to group similar surnames together to get a total count.  Lots of names, double columns.  If you have not already found your ancestors on the net, this might be a good place to look especially if you are not sure where that teen-aged boy was living in 1880.  PRICE: $10
