Early Births
Registered in
Scott County, Illinois


This information was transcribed from a microfilm copy of original Scott County records. It isn't clear exactly why this record was created, but all of the names and dates were extracted from written oaths attesting to the fact that the children named here were the children and lawful heirs of a deceased parent. In most cases that parent was the father and some, perhaps all but it wasn't clear, of the fathers died in service during the civil war. The person making the sworn oath was usually the mother but in several cases appeared to be a guardian which leads me to believe that both parents were deceased at the time the oath was made.
