Ashland County Ohio: Mifflin and Milton Townships

By Rita Bone Kopp and Thomas Sloan

Ashland, Ohio: Ashland County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogy Society, 1994. I have only twice seen this very useful book filled with genealogical material. The first one was heavily highlighted so I let it go. This one looks almost new and would be perfect if there hadn't been a half a dozen pages with one sentence or word underlined and a couple names written in margins so it can easily be found again. Be sure to see the pictures because I took one of the defaced ones. This book measures 9-1/4" x 11" and has 247 pages. The text offers an amazing amount of infomation. It offers maps, deeds, tavern petitions, tax lists, census, citizens who served in the military, a mortality schedule, and many details on citzens including names, ages, addresses, children and their names and ages, occupations, taxes and more.. Soft Cover, Spiral Binding. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12".
