Harrison County, Indiana
Abstracted by Walter S. Beanblossom August 1973
The papers abstracted below were found recently while cleaning out storage areas in the Harrison county courthouse at Corydon, Indiana. Faded and poor writing
(some in German script) made copying difficult. However, an attempt was made to copy the records exactly as written even though the spelling was known to be
wrong or different from that used today.
Some of the records are in the individuals own handwriting, others have been
transcribed. The same names often appear on two or more company rolls. It is not
known whether or not they actually served in two companies or whether one company
may have been disbanded and they joined another.
So far as is known, these papers form the only known written record of the people
who served in the Harrison County Militia of the Indiana Legion. It is sincerely
hoped that no name has been omitted and that the spelling is near enough correct
so that any person can spot his or her ancestor.
It has been a pleasure and privilege to copy these records and thus preserve them
