Note: In 1867, Ohio passed a law that birth and deaths were to be recorded, but not all were. As the Licking County Courthouse burned in 1875 there are no birth or death records prior to 1875. A few marriages were re-recorded but again not all were. Ohio did not issue birth or death certificates until 20 December 1908.
