Index to Deed Books A - H

This index currently includes Deed Books A – H, which were originally abstracted by Vicky L. Hutchings. The digital index is based on her work. More Deed Books will be added in the future as they are abstracted and/or digitally indexed. 

If you find an error compared to an original deed, please let us know. 

The original deed books are held by the Lawrence County Register of Deeds and can be viewed at their office. They have been microfilmed and digitized and copies are available by request.

The microfilmed deed books have also been digitized by FamilySearch, and are available for free on their website. For links and detailed instructions, see Digitized Records Online 

Note on language: For Bks. A-H, all identifiers and familial relationships, such “-exec.” and “-wife” are as specified in the deed abstracts from which this index was created. Where an enslaved person was named, that name has been included. If unnamed, any available identifying information has been used, e.g. “female – abt. 20,” “his wife,” or “and their children”. 

Note: When searching for full names, use: Last Name, First Name (or initial)
