Lake County residents who probated in Cuyahoga County

Abstracted by Cynthia Turk

Prior to 1840 Willoughby (earlier Chagrin) Township was part of Cuyahoga County. The following list is of those who were in the Common Pleas Court in Cuyahoga and specifically mentioned being of Chagrin (Ch), Chagrin Township (ChT), Willoughby (Wby) or Wby Township (WbyT). A few were from Painesville (Pvl). One is from Euclid (Eu). The third column is the page number in the book, and the fourth column is the Common Pleas Probate Docket letter and Case number. This is an extract from the fully indexed book Abstracts of Wills, Estates and Guardianships, Cuyahoga County, Ohio Common Pleas Court, 1811-1852 by East Cuyahoga County Genealogical Society, A Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, 2003. There are many more Lake County people included in the book who did not specifically mention residence, or used only Cuyahoga County. In addition, there are many relatives of the principal persons who may be Lake Countians. Some of these people may have also probated elsewhere, and are listed here because they owned Cuyahoga County property. The book includes a great deal of information, all the people listed with relationships, etc. A copy of the book here extracted is available from the East Cuyahoga County Genealogical Society.
