This straight-forward publication contains the full text of Jefferson County wills from 1792 through 1810 and is complimented by a short history of the county.

An Interesting Side Note

One settlement gives a listing of persons in the county that owed money to a doctor. This lists includes over 265 individuals and may well be the best indicator of who resided in Jefferson County in 1810.

Below are a few examples of short full-text wills contained in this publication. Some of the wills are very, very lengthly. (spellings & text left intact - exactly as written.)
