Apprenticeship Indentures For Chagrin/Willoughby Township 1815-1846

These indentures were very similar. The first one is a transcription, the others are abstracts. The living arrangements were basically the same for everyone here. "So much arithmetick as will include the single rule of three" was basically putting a story problem into an equation to solve.

The original record book First Records of Chagrin Township Copied by William Phillips T. Clerk 1819 from the First Records of the Township of Chagrin April 3rrd 1815. It is held at Western Reserve Historical Society, Cleveland. The pages are not numbered, and the entries are not necessarily in chronological order. These entries are presented in the order they appeared in the original book. There is little punctuation, and spelling of names is inconsistent. Submitted by Cynthia Turk
