Added Birth/Death section, error corrections

The following web site contains material retrieved from the Lawrence County court house located in Ironton, OH. As the preservation work progresses we hope it will be a useful source for genealogists and historians.

Every effort for accuracy has been taken in indexing the documents. However, some, for various reasons, are very difficult to decipher. I apologize for any errors and appreciate corrections. If you have any comments, questions or corrections please contact the local history and genealogy department of Briggs Library at 740-532-1124 or

This site would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the following volunteers:
Lisa Ayers   Linda Meredith
Carol BruceJosh McKenzie
David BruceNancy Norris
Curt ChristianTom Norris
Janet GrimmMarta Ramey
James KettelSandy Wiseman
Teri Wells 

Also thanks for the support of the Lawrence County court house employees, Briggs Library, local merchants, private donors, Tami Ailster and Ed Carpenter.
