RURAL DIRECTORY

INCLUDING

OAK HILL
COALTON, BYER, ROADS, RAY, COVE


This book does not contain residents of Jackson and Wellston, ONLY RURAL RESIDENTS of Jackson County. The residents are listed alphabetically within Rural Routes in the book. However, I have sorted all the residents in the book by surname, so there is only one overall list here. Each person generally has listed his occupation, size of property (if a farm), whether owner or tenent, and location (rural route number, village or street). Unmarried women are listed as Miss or Widow.
On page four is a listing of County Officers and Township Officers. They are listed here (before the other residents):
