Early Residents and Stray Animals

Early Residents and Stray Animals

By Daryl Polley

This record lists early Campbell County residents who reported finding stray animals.  Apparently the finder protected his good name by contacting a local appraiser who would note the date found, description of the animal,, any identifying brand or mark and the estimated value of the animal.  The appraiser would periodically make a trip to the courthouse where the information was recorded including the area where the finder lived. The handwriting is difficult to read with dates being frequently scribbled, abbreviated, incomplete or missing entirely.  Every effort was made to avoid interpretation.
