County Jail Registers

County Jail Registers

We hold Jail Registers from a number of Ohio Counties.  Each collection varies but, generally, the registers are arranged chronologically by commitment and list persons placed in county jail on authority of the sheriff showing date, name, sentence of court, and may show personal description, jail statistics, period confined, and total number of meals.
