Note:  Civil and State case files have been moved to their own web pages due to the large number of case files.  See new links below to Civil and State case files.

 

 

How to use this page:  Documents listed below are separated in sections by file/case type (Citizenship, Civil War, Elections, Inquests, Divorces, Wills).  Within each section, the Name(s) column will be an index to all of the names appearing in the Files in that section.  Each File is in its own physical folder at the Archives, and the file will appear multiple times in the index below, for ease of searching – you only need to scan the Name(s) column for your names of interest .  When ordering, you will receive a copy of entire Case File, regardless of which name you are researching.

 

How to Search:  use your browser’s Find feature to quickly search names of interest, keeping in mind that there may be variations in spelling.

 

When requesting copies of these files from the Archives, you must include the File Name, Type, Date and Number of Pages information, shown below, from the file you are requesting, so that the Archives staff can locate the file.  The Number of Pages information will determine the cost of obtaining a copy of the file. 

 

The fee schedule is 25 cents per printed page, plus an additional amount depending on how many files are ordered (1-4 files, add $7.00, 5-8 files, add $10.00, 9-12 files, add $13.00).  Postage is included.  So, a file containing 4 pages would cost $8.00 ($7.00 plus 4 pages at 25 cents each), a file containing 14 pages would cost $10.50 ($7.00 plus 14 pages at 25 cents each), etc.  You can order multiple files at once.

Part 1 of 8:  Circuit Court Cases – Civil:  1805-1929

 

Civil cases typically involved private citizens bringing suit against one another. The type of case (shown in the Type column) varies widely for civil cases.  Civil case files typically include the original plea, summons for witnesses, evidence, and the final decree.  Less common but more valuable are the case files that also include the actual depositions of the witnesses.  Disputes over land sometimes include copies of deeds for that land, or the original grant for the land.  Disputes over estates often include genealogical information about those making a claim against the estate, and sometimes include a will that was being disputed.

 

Due to file size considerations, Civil cases have been moved to their own web page.

Click here for a listing of 4,741 Civil case files currently available.   (Last updated August 23, 2017)

 

 

Part 2 of 8:  Circuit Court Cases – Criminal (State):  1810-1940

 

State cases typically involved citizens who broke the law.  The type of case (shown in the Type column) indicates the criminal charge against the defendant(s).  Criminal case files typically include the charge against the defendant, such as a grand jury bill of indictment, plus summons for witnesses and a final decree.  Less common but more valuable are the case files that also include the actual depositions of the witnesses.

 

Note:  Currently, the only State case files available for the 1930-1940 period are the case files involving a murder.

 

Due to file size considerations, State cases have been moved to their own web page.

Part 3 of 8:  Citizenship Applications

These files contain a person’s petition to the Stewart Circuit Court to become a naturalized citizen.  The petition typically lists the person’s country of origin, date of birth, year of immigration, and dates/places of residence since entering the U. S.    (Last updated February 4, 2017)

Part 6 of 8:  Divorces, 1811-1940

Divorce case files will typically include:  the original petition of the plaintiff, court summons for the defendant and witness(es) to appear in court, the legal response of the defendant, depositions from any witnesses, and the court’s final decree.  The original petition typically contains the date and place the marriage took place.  Sometimes the petition or the court’s final ruling will indicate the wife’s maiden name, and sometimes the names and ages of children are mentioned.

Part 8 of 8:  Wills, 1804-1948

These files will typically include the original will of the decedent, or occasionally a clerk’s copy of the original.  Wills often mention minor children, even when other children or a spouse aren’t mentioned.  In the case of an original will, original signatures (or marks) of the decedent and the witnesses can be seen.   (Last updated August 4, 2013)
