INDICTMENTS FOR FAILURE
TO REGISTER A DOG
MARSHALL COUNTY, INDIANA
1890'S


From: Marshall County Roots and Branches, Vol. 22, No. 1, January 2001, Judy McCollough, Editor and Compiler

In the mid 1890ís the Grand Jury of Marshall County indicted a number of county residents for harboring an animal of the dog kind without registering the same with the township trustee. Any dog over the age of three months required registration. Due to the lack of the 1890 census, information similar to this may be the only way we can place an ancestor in a given place at a given time. The following is a list of indictments that are on file in the Historical Museum Archive under Miscellaneous Papers in the Documents Files:
