What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection contains the following various records from the county clerk’s office for the years 1900 to 1988:

  • Vital or civil registration – marriages
  • Land and property records
  • Deeds
  • Homesteads
  • Brands

County officials began keeping records from the time the county was formed. Each type of record within the county was created for a different purpose, but most were created to keep track of the vital events happening in the lives of the citizens and to safeguard their legal interests and the legal interests of their heirs. Facts current at the time of the event are generally reliable. Some of the records are handwritten on loose pages. However, most of the records are handwritten on pre-printed pages or typed.
