Welcome to the Harrison County OHGenWeb Project. My name is Allen Sparrow. I am the Coordinator of the Harrison County site.

Harrison County was formed in 1813, from Jefferson County on the East. And about 3/4 of the County on the West was formed from Tuscarawas County. Two Northern Townships, Rock and Union, were taken from Harrison County in 1833 and made part of Carroll County. Harrison County is named for William Henry Harrison, Hero of the War of 1812, and the first President of the United States to be elected from the state of Ohio. Cadiz is the county seat for Harrison County.
