YOGSOH WASHINGTON-01:  WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO EARLY MARRIAGE RECORDS, 1789-1803.  By Mrs. John Doak.  These following marriage records in this book were copied in 1971 from Washington County, Ohio Probate Court Records.  They cover the early years of 1789 to1803 when statehood began.  There are 700 names, most have the locality from which they came.  The compiler undertook this project in an attempt to preserve the records and to make them available to those who are interested in the early days of Marietta, Ohio.  These marriages with spouses and date are filed under both the surname of the groom and the bride.  Marriages are listed alphabetically by both the surname of the groom and again by the surname of the bride.  All the people, whether male or female, are listed in one alphabetical list with their spouse and the date in each entry.  Each surname is together.  This makes your research easier and you are less likely to overlook someone.  It also makes it easier to check for possible mis-spellings of the surname.  Surnames with two(,) or more than two (#) entries are listed here:  Allen 4, Aml(e/i)n, Ancrum, Atkinson 3, Bail(e)y, Baker 5, Barker 4, Beaudeau/Beaudot, Beebe, Big(g)erstaff 3, Bobo 3, Borrowy, Brown 8, Campbell, Carver, Chandevert, Chapman 3, Cline, Cob(e/u)rn 4, Coleman 4, Converse 3, Convis, Cook/e, Corey, Corner, Craig, Cushing, Dana 3, Davis 7, Devol/l 11, Dodge, Dunham 3, Farmer, Fearing, Flagg, Ford 5, Foster, Fuller, Gard(i)ner 3, Gates 3, Goodale 4, Green/e 3, Hammon/d 5, Harden 3, Harris 3, Hart 3, Harvey, Hew(e/i)t/t 4, Hill, Howe, Huet, Hughs 5, James, Johnson 4, Jones 4, Keller, Kelly, Lalance, Leavens, Lewis, Lincoln, Linn, Lucas 3, Luckey, Maldon, Martin 4, Mathews 3, McCall, McGee, Miller 3, Mills, Munro, Northup, Nott 3, Nye, Ny(gh)swonger, Oliver 9, Olney 6, Patten, Perry, Phillips, Picket, Porter, Pratt, Pugsley, Putnam 9, Rariden/Raredon, Rasor 3, Rice, Riggs, Rouse 3, Sanford, Scott 3, Seamans 4, Seamons 3, Shaw, Shep(h)ard 4, Sher(e)man 3, Simmons, Smith 7, Sprague 3, Staats, Stacy, Stevens 2, Stewart, Stone 8, Stroud, Thompson,Tupper, Tuttle, Ward, Warth 4, Wells 5, White 5, Williams 3, Williamson, Willis 3, Wi(l/l)son 3, Woodbridge, and Wright 3.  There are so many names that have only uncommon or mis-spelled names on this list that have not been mentioned in the above list!  PRICE:  $7

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-02:  WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO CEMETERIES.  1789-1940.  Searched and compiled by Mrs Helen Hill Sloan, (Mrs. Clarence R.) Born 1883, Died 1962.  Arranged and Published by Mrs. E. Margaret Conner and Mrs. Nola R, Goodpasture Eynon.  1964. The first cemetery covered is Mound Cemetery in Marietta, OH.  The first interment was made in 1801, when Robert Taylor, a Revolutionary War Soldier, was buried there.  Those stones that may now be found in the cemetery bearing dates earlier than 1801, have been removed from earlier burial grounds.  The City of Marietta first began keeping records of burials in this cemetery in August of 1858.  Some time prior to 1890, W. T. Westgate made a copy of the inscriptions on tombstones antedating 1858.  In 1890, the date of death, number of Range and Lot of all these which had been copied by Westgate were copied upon the City Hall Cemetery Record by Charles W. Clogston.  In March of 1936, when searching for names of Revolutionary War Soldiers, the City Hall record was gone over and the following list [was] compiled by Mrs. C. R. Sloan.  The record was copied up to 1863-that being the date of death of the last Revolutionary Soldier of whom we have a record (Isaac Berry 1762-1863.)  
Please note:  from 1790 to February 10, 1851, all names were copied.  From February 10, 1851 to Dec. 25, 1863 only names were copied of persons that were twenty years of age and over.  There is no index to this book.  Hopefully, the Genealogical Society has corrected this oversight by now.  There are 26 pages in this book in a two column format just crammed with names, dates, extraneous, but important, information added as found.  69 names with birth and death dates are copied on page 1, 90 names on page 2, 93 names on page 3, 84 names on page 4, 85 on page 5, 59 on this partial page finishes the Mound Cemetery.  If there is a surname with only a comma behind it that means there was only one gravestone in that cemetery with that name.  
Next is Beach Grove, Newport Township with Hill 4, Jett, Johnson, Posey, Rose, Sharp.  Beach Grove Presbyterian burying ground is near Hill's Post Office on the Moss Run Road.  The church was established about 1848
Third is Barker Cemetery in Lower Newport.  Contains 34 grave names with dates on page 6 and 104 on page 7.  Barker Cemetery was established in 1860.   Abbott 1, Amos 4, Babson 2, Barker 13, Bell 9, Casaday 7, Clause 1, Close 1, Covey 1, Dana 2, Dilley 3,  Dye 2, Eddy 5, Gilman 1, Gitchell 2, Hart 2, Hill 12, Ingraham 1, Jackson 3, Leonard 1, Lightfritz 2, Little 1, Matheny 4, McGilton 1, McPeek 2, McKenzie 2, Middleswart 15, Mullen 1, Needs 2, Plumer 2, Riley 2, Rogers 1, Rowland 15, Sessel 2,  Sheets 2, Skinner 3, Smith 9,  Sutton 1, Tuel 1, Warren 2, Whiston 2, Williamson 1,   It is nine miles East of Marietta left of Route 7 and 50.  
Beckett Cemetery, Washington County - begins on page 8 plus 2 on page 9.  Surnames are:  Andrews 1, Bacon 5, Baker 1, Baldwin 1, Beckett 11, Bolen 1, Chadwick 3, Clark 1, Coburn 9, Cory 13,  Curry 1, Davis 1, Devin-Rev.War 1, Elliott 1, Emerson 4, Fordice 2, Godfrey 3, Harward 5, Lapham 3, Lawrence 5, Lyon 2, McClure 3, McCollum 2, Morris 1,  Murry 1, Oliver 1, Olney 3, Pomeroy 5, Ramsey 2, Ross 3, Rowland 1, Swift 2, Vaughn 3, Vincent 10, Webster 1, and West 2.  Beckett Cemetery is about six miles from Waterford on the river road.  No public road is open to the cemetery which is on the Beckett farm.  
At Brownsfield Cemetery only the 3 oldest inscriptions were copied.  William and Ann McHugh and Isaac Teboy.  This small cemetery is in a field near the village of Brownsfield.
Cady Cemetery in Independence Township.  Three inscriptions copied for Cline family members.  Others known to be buried here are Zebulon Chandler who died while visiting his daughter here about 1825, Elizabeth Chandler Cady, James Cady and wife.  
Carson Cemetery in Washington Township has about 50 graves with stones for these surnames Anderson 1, Bliss 1, Boice 1,  Carson 1, Cochran 3, Custer 1, Dorff 1, Fritz 2, Hall 2, Hisson 2,  Hubbard 7, Jolly 2, Marlow 3, Mobley 1, Roper 8, Scott 1, Talbott 6, Wells 7, Witten 2, and Wright 1.  Near the boundary of Washington and Monroe Counties along Route 7.  
Page 9 has Cedar Ridge Cemetery, a small one with Surnames: Baker 2, Converse 1, Hagerman 3, Hill 2, Smith 1, Springer 1, White 7 including Major General Hatfield and others.  A nearby cemetery has been destroyed, one stone left, Nancy Gates, more info about her on this page.  This finishes to page 9.  You can see the value when I tell you most of these people, we have talked about so far, were born in the 1700s and died before, during or shortly after the Civil War.  PRICE:  $15.

YOGSOH  WASHINGTON-03:  INDEX TO NATURALIZATIONS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO.  By Ernest Thode, 1988.  64 pages of Naturalizations for mostly men who wanted to become Citizens of the United States.  The Declaration of Intent had to be filed.  There was a waiting period, usually five years, you appeared in court again to get the final papers.  The last one in this book appeared in October of 1869. Remember after the Revolutionary War and our new government was formed, even the English, The Scots, The Irish and the Welsh needed to apply for and receive naturalization papers before they could vote.  Those records were for many years kept by the county courts of record.  About 55 names per page for 64 pages is not something I am going to try to abstract here.  Take my word for it, or look yourself, this is an awesome resource to research!  Over 3,500 people applying for citizenship in this one county.  These people wanted to become more like the people who were already here, speak the same language, respect our laws and be able to vote legally.  They wanted to add their skills to those already here and they were, for the most part, welcomed.   PRICE: $17  

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-04:  WASHI8NGTON COUNTY, OHIO MARRIAGES, 1789-1840.  Compiled by Bernice Graham and Elizabeth S. Cottle, Sponsored jointly by Marietta Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Washington County Historical Society, Marietta, Ohio. 1976,  July 4, 1976.  What a nice Bicentennial Birthday gift to genealogists everywhere! This is a very thoughtful presentation of important information.  This book begins with a chronological detail of the formation of townships in Washington County, followed by maps detailing in map form the area covered by the changes from the original boundaries to what it is today.  A Table of abbreviations helps you to understand what is actually being meant by what it is being seen.  A most helpful set of abbreviations for the marrying officials saves time, space and effort for the researcher because that is often a clue to further records.  Having the marrying officials in a list saves repetition and space.  The marriages themselves run 152 pages, in alphabetical order by the groom's surnames; followed by a bride's index referring to the page on which the marriage is found.  But I encourage a careful study of the first pages of this book to get a better understanding of how hard these authors worked to design a more complete marriage record book than many.  They have prepared names of the grooms and brides, both lists in alphabetical order,  their residences when given, the dates of the marriage, names of persons performing the ceremonies with their offices, and the page reference numbers in the original books where the original reference may be found all for the years of 1789-1840.  This produced a book of 187 pages, containing more than 3,600 marriage records, double spaced for ease of searching and reading.  With Washington County's importance as the first county created 1n Ohi in 1788,  in that part of the Northwest Territory which became Ohio; it is very important to remember its jurisdiction covered most of what is now the entire eastern half of the state.  With a southern border of the Ohio River and a northern border of Lake Erie, it stretched along the entire eastern border.  The western border ran to the Scioto River in the south and in the north it ran west to the Tuscarawas and the Cuyahoga Rivers.
With the grooms and brides being separately listed, I began with the groom's names, selecting each surname that had three or more names.  After finishing that list, I went through and added the bride's numbers, so it is groom's numbers first and bride's numbers after the +  Surnames with three or more than three entries are marked (#): Abbot/t 4(men)+4(women), Ackerson 3+4, Ackley 0+3, Adams

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-05:  (Partial?) CENSUS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO for1810. This is a photocopy from pages which appeared in the Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine. Aug, Sept. and Oct. issue of 1946.  This is a typed copy of all the information found on the census.  They are not alphabetically arranged.  Each line will tell you the head of household's name; Column A holds the number of residents under ten (10) years old; Column B holds the number of residents of ten (10) years to sixteen (16); Column C holds the number of residents of sixteen (16) and under twenty-six (26) includng heads of families; Column D holds the number of residents who were of twenty-six (26) years and under forty-five (45) years includng heads of families;; and Column E holds residents of forty-five (45) and upwards, includng heads of families.
The page is divided into three parts:  The first part holds only the name of the head of household.  The middle third holds column information A through E. for free white males only; the last third holds Columns A through E for only free white females.  A Sample line would describe one household enumerating every one whose usual place of abode was that household.

Fearing Twp has totals of 78 households with 454 people.  Grandview Twp. does not show totals here.   Marietta Twp. has 156 households showing here with 1,463 persons living in that township in 1810.  Here you have for the 1810 census 423 households in six townships with a total population of at least 2, 500 to 3,000 people. Plus you have the name of approximately 443 of them as well as the size of their households.   [PLEASE NOTE:  I do not believe this is the total count.  Perhaps the prior owner only copied those townships in which she had an interest.  Therefore, the price has been lowered to $3  

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-06:  1834 CITIZENS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO.  From the Memorial of Inhabitants of Washington County on the state of the Currency.  Lovely woodcut or engraving of Fort Harmar at Marietta graces the cover.  Note accompanying explains that Marietta is finely situated at the mouth of Muskinhum, having about 90 houses on the upper and 30 on the opposite bank where Fort Harmar formerly stood.  19 pages, cardstock cover, printed on 11" by 17" paper, folded and center stapled.  Book is new.  Hundreds of nen signed this "Petition" sent to Congress.  At a meeting of the citizens of Washington County, in the state of Ohio, convened at the Courthouse in Marietta, March 29, 1834 to consider as to the course to be adopted in regard to the late measures of the Executive in assuming the control of the national finances, the meeting was called to order by Colonel Ichabod Nye. They appointed a committee to report a preamble and resolutions in relation to the subject before the meeting, returned, and made report of the following preamble, resolutions and memorial to Congress.  The problem was, as I understand it, that the Government had placed a large sizable amount of money to capitalize the Bank of the United States, which allowed the Bank the privilege of loaning capital to farmers and business men, and now it has been taken away by the government and is no longer available to the farmers who wish to buy seed for crops and for business people to buy stock for their business. [Does this sound familiar to you?  It should!]  Credit no longer flows from the Bank and times are hard.  They are asking the Government to please return the money to the bank, so the business of borrowing and paying the bank back may resume.  Each citizen that wished to do so, signed the document before it was sent to Congress.  On May 26, 1834, the 23rd Congress accepted Document No. 487, read it and laid it on the table.  Their names of those who signerd it are printed here.  The Publisher has indexed them for us.  Here are the surnames which were signed by three or more people who shared the same surname:  Adams, Alcock, Allen, Ames, Amlin, Armstrong, Arnold, Athey, Bailey, Baker, Bartlett, Beach, Bellows, Bent, Bishop, Bosworth, Brown, Cadwell, Chambers, Chapman, Clark, Cole, Cook, Corp, Crawford, Culver, Curtis, Cutler, Dana, Daniels, Davis, Delafield, Deming, Devol, Dodge, Drury, Dye, Eichelberger, Ellis, Fairchild, Fearing, Flagg, Flanders, Ford, Fuller, Gard, Gibson, Gilbert, Gould, Gray, Green, Greene, Guthrie, Hall, Harris, Hart, Henry, Hill, Hollister, Howe, Hutchinson, Johnson, Judd, Knowles, Lawton, Lewis, Little, McIntosh, Martin, Mason, Middleswort, Miller, Moore, Morris, Noland, Nutt, Nye, Palmer, Patton, Payne Pixley, Place, Porter, Preston, Proctor, Pugh, Putnam, Rickey, Root, Rowland, Scherber, Schoonover, Scott, Shaw, Sinclair, Slocomb, Smith, Stacy, Stanton, Steedman, Stone, True, Vangilder, Vincent, Vinton, Ward, Waterman, Wedge, Wells, West, Wheeler, White, Williams, Wilson, Wire, Wolcott, Woodford, Woodruff, and Woodward.  Book is new.  PRICE $5.

YOGS WASHINGTON-07:  WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO, CHAPTER OHIO GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY.  PERIODICAL EARLY ISSUES.  Volume I plus others.  There are over 100 pages gathered here in this pronged pocket folder.  There are marriage records, birth records, cemetery inscriptions with dates, a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  But it all has to do with this county.  Being the first to be organized has its advantages!  These records are older than any others and you can be justly proud to have ancestors in them.  Many of the people that settled other counties in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois left their first records in this county.  You can be proud of the material you have produced to help people trying to search your records from far away.  This periodical is packed with information people in Texas, California, Oregon and the State of Washington need to prove the early years of their ancestor's time in your state.  It would cost a small fortune to drive to Marietta to do a week's worth of research, so keep up the good work.  You are letting others know what you have through this periodical.  Thank you.  PRICE $7

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-08:  MARIETTA AND THE NORTHWEST TERRITORY 1788.  By Edith S, Reiter.  38 pages, 4" by 7", pocket-book size.  Cardstock covers, folded in half and stapled in the center, Was in its fifth printing in July of 1968.  First picture on the inside is of the Campus Martius Museum, which was administered by the Ohio Historical Society in 1968.  It is a very stylish building.  The Ohio River took form from 40,000 to 50,000 years ago and to this day is continually moving its channel.  The present course of the river was shaped by great glaciers that came down from the north.  Even after the final disappearance of the glaciers, thousands of years passed before the ice cap shrank and the river must have been frozen over most of the year for several centuries.  A divide or watershed, formed by the glaciers, runs southwest across Ohio and separates the state into two quite separate drainage basins-Lake Erie [to the north, so the river's current flows north] and the Ohio River [to the south so the river's current carries boats south.]  This is a simple to understand geography lesson, but it is an important one.  Six of the largest rivers made a quick canoe trip for the Indians from north to south and between these rivers and their ancient villages were many overland trails.  Contents of this little book are: Valley Forge and the Ohio Company, Manasseh Cutler-Early lobbyist, Veterans form New Ohio Empire, Ohio Company Arrives at Muskingum, A Settlement in the Wilderness, A Young Man in the Wilderness, Old Letter from the Muskingum, Treaty with Indian Tribes signed, The Elegant General Varnum, Food in the days of the Pioneers, Social Life at Marietta in 1788, First Ohio Sheriff Appointed, Rufus Putnam-the Father of the Ohio.  Easy to read, one section just flows into the next, the pictures, almost one to each two-page spread, really enhance your enjoyment in reading this little book.  This is really a nice little book full of things it is nice to know.  PRICE $5  

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-09:  WASHINGTON COUNTY NORTHWEST TERRITORY COURT OF COMMON PLEAS INDEX 1795-1803.  By W. Lous Phillips, Heritage Books, 1984.  49 pages of abstracts of records plus a 15 page surname index.  If your surname is found within this index it would be prudent to look at the original document involved.  They can be amusing as is the case of one which involved a suit against one Ambrose Greene of Marietta, the 18-year-old infant of Clark Greene, and Clarke Greene by one James White who sued for $50 for damages in the case of Ambrose Greene who did beat and harm,  with force and arms, Mr. White's cow, did beat and wound, did put out and destroy the left eye of the cow and did him, James White, other wrongs, to the great damage of the said James, and against the Peace of the United States and this Territory.  Mr. White did agree to accept the judgment of the Referees, appointed by the court that day.  The Referees found in Mr. White's favor and Ambrose Greene and Clarke Greene were directed to pay a judgment of the sum of $6.00 damages together with Eleven Dollars and 25 cents costs of the suit.   
Justice was swift and pretty fair in those days.  [Note:  But nobody called the aggrieved party, the cow, to testify!  She was really the injured party, and I bet she would not have settled for $6 without some hay and corn being thrown in by Ambrose Greene also!
This is an index to the suits.  Only this one suit is mentioned to show the amount of detail that is involved here in these suits.  Many of the suits, I speak from experience, will tell you much about your ancestors, some of which you may find you may not have wanted to know.  But I know the full text of that suit would appear in My Family History Book whether my family involved were the Greenes or the Whites!  Suits over land distribution are common in these courts and are almost always of interest!  The format gives the Term of the court - month and year, The Justices hearing the cases; case number; the Plaintiff and residence; the Defendant and residence; and the Volume number.
The surname index lists the following parties with three or more pages on which they were mentioned.  Abbot 3, Alger 7,

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-10:  INDEX FOR WASHINGTON COUNTY, NORTHWEST TERRITORY, OHIO:  1800 CENSUS, AND INDEX FOR WASHINGTON COUNTY MARRIAGES 1791-1803 AND INCLUDES REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS BURIED IN WASHINGTON COUNTY WITH BIRTH AND DEATH DATES ON MANY EARLY SETTLERS.  By Fay Maxwell.  Each individual compilation is indexed separately.  This book was done by a well-known reputable researcher who is very well versed in searching and abstracting various record types and has a list of fourteen other indexes and publications she has done in the back of this one .  Nuff said!  If you have people in early Ohio, pre-statehood and the earliest periods of time for the cdollections of records you already know you need this book.  PRICE:  $17

YOGSOH WASHINGTON-11:  WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO.
By William D. Emerson, 1845.  Reprint issued on the 128th Anniversary of the Old Northwest Territory, April 7th, 1976.  Washington County Historical Society.  Book looks old and yet IS brand new and it is both!  The choice of light green 11 by 17 inch paper aids the look at antiquity, but makes the maps difficult to read because of the print with light lines not showing up well over time.  Every map you could use is here from town and township to a full county fold-out map plus the index begins on page 14 and runs to page 34.  Very Helpful.  This index locates practically every item on any of these maps, many of which are printed brilliantly and are most useful.  A new reprint from the original on lighter paper would be supremely useful?  Is that possible?  If not, this will have to do.  Beautiful weight and substance on the paper, just not a good choice of color.  PRICE $18
