Ripley County Court Records - Insanity - Sep 1849/Jun 1871
I have tried to make sure the data here is correct, but the text was hard to read, so there could be mistakes. Questionable text is marked with a `?'
To obtain copies of the page(s), send a $5.00 (research fee), plus 1.00 per each page (copy fees) and an SASE to: RCHS P.O. Box 525 Versailles, IN 47042
Some of the people here are also in the other insanity records online here, and can be included in the $5.00 research fee if you will make note of this (and the years or URL) in your letter to RCHS. You will be billed the extra copy fee for other pages.
