PURPOSE: To establish a Licking County Pioneer File, including every person
listed as the head of household on the 1820 census of Licking County, Ohio.
GOAL: To have Pioneer Forms for most, if not all, of our county pioneers
that resided in Licking County, Ohio in the 1820 census or before.

NOTE: Please remember that the Pioneer Project is not a lineage group, it is the
effort of the Licking County Genealogical Society to collect all the data possible on
these 1820 or before pioneers of Licking County.


Wanted information on the early pioneers of LICKING COUNTY, OHIO.

If you know that your ancestors were in the County of Licking in the 1820 census or before, we would
like for you to share your family information with this Society, and help complete our Licking County
Pioneer file. Everyone is encouraged to participate. No Proof of descent is necessary to submit
pioneer information. You do not need to be a member of LCGS, however, we encourage you to join.
See our Membership Information
and a link to the online membership form.

The Pioneer file will provide new and, potentially valuable, genealogical data and
historical information about the places of origin and migration patterns of early Licking County settlers.

To obtain Pioneer Forms: click here - Pioneer Form
NOTE: The above Pioneer Form will need to be printed out and then filled in.

Instructions for filling out your Pioneer Forms:

  2. Use a typewriter or print in ink.
  3. Surnames should be written first in capitals; such as - WALKER, Robert
  4. Dates should be written as: 18 Aug. 1800
  5. Residence data: The first line should be used for the place and date of the Pioneer's birth, if known. The next three lines can be used to list his various places of residence (one of which was Licking County, Ohio). The last line should be used for the date and place of his death. Specific dates are not necessary.
  6. Use the back of the form for information about the Pioneer's spouse, her birthdate, parents, etc., if known.
