The following are records abstracted from documents located in the Office of the Circuit Clerk at the courthouse in Mt. Vernon, Missouri. The staff do not have the time available to do lookups. Lawrence County Historical Society volunteers are assisting the Office of the State Attorney General, Department of Local Records, in preserving and microfilming the records. You may wish to check with the State Archives to see if microfilm is available yet.
