Miscellaneous Notes

extracted & annotated by Holly Timm

The following are notes made from miscellaneous cases in the Harlan Circuit Court records. Most existing records do not indicate the results of the case so do not presume a guilty finding. The Box number will aid you in retrieving the case file from the Archives should you wish to do so. We would love to hear more about any of these.
