     Historical note 
 Ohio County was formed in 1798 from portions of Hardin County and named after the Ohio River, which originally formed the county's northern border. The county seat is Hartford, Kentucky.  William Cooper Rowan was the grandson of Ohio County's first clerk and the nephew of Senator John Rowan, owner of Federal Hill in Bardstown, Kentucky. Rowan's son-in-law, James Ford, served in the Confederate military before becoming a wealthy businessman and landowner. His son-in-law, R.E. Lee Simmerman, worked as an attorney.

     Scope and Contents 
 The Ohio County, Kentucky records (dated 1799-1924; 0.9 cubic feet; 3 boxes) contain both public and private records relating to the county government and residents. The public records, dating from 1800-1860, comprise the bulk of the collections. They consist of bonds, deeds, reports to county commissioners and the county court, depositions, notifications of appointments to public office, and bills belonging to the county clerk's office. The personal records, dominated by James Ford and the Rowan family, include deeds, land records, tax statements and receipts, business documents, and probate records.  Notable items include charges of misconduct against Sheriff Richard Stevens, cases heard by justices of the peace Mosby James and James Hobdy, letters regarding education from Susan M. Anthony and S.R. Rowan, the charter of the Hartford Academy from 1807, and census returns and lists of emancipated slaves from 1810-1818.
