YEARS 1832 - 1838

Part 1

We're pleased to present a major contribution from Dottie Piechocki and Suzanne Carpenter. Dottie and Suzanne had the opportunity to visit the Allen County Library, in Ft. Wayne, IN, a place noted for its genealogical collections, and discovered this resource. Dottie typed it up from copies off the microfilm and Suzanne proofread. Dottie has previously contributed Youngs family obits and her g-gf's, Alanson Youngs', Civil War pension record. Excerpts from Dottie's notes to us:

"I've transcribed some pages from the microfilmed "Marion Record Book, 1825 - 1895", which I photocopied at theAllen Co (Ft. Wayne) Library. This is by no means the entire "Record Book", as I photocopied only the first few years during which time my own ancestor (George Youngs) lived in Marion. After his name disappeared from the rolls, I didn't bother copying any further. Marion had its first town meeting in 1826, according to the record, and there are many, many names listed therein, as the book records by highway district the name of each landowner. I would love for these pages to be put on the Wayne Co website, as many researchers could potentially find their ancestors listed here. May we all be so fortunate as to draw some other cousins out of the woodwork through putting this up on the Wayne Co website!

Yes, I did type all this from microfilms of handwritten pages. I only touched the surface, photocopying (at 15 cents per page!) just the pages from the time frame that my ancestor George Youngs appeared in the Marion record book. He dropped off after 1835. You will see in one of the latter town meetings, the mention of the land "formerly owned by George Youngs". Wish I knew where he went! Someone could maybe borrow the microfilm or see it at an FHC and thus obtain all the rest of the pages. The book went through 1890's. "
