Between 1881 and 1909, the following men served as justices of the peace in the Harts Creek community. The primary source for this material is “Commissioner’s Record of Destroyed Title Papers 2,” which is located at the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office in Hamlin, WV. Material is arranged based on the person’s name as given in the deed, the date of the deed, and the date of the deed’s acknowledgment by a JP. I have also found JPs listed in Deed Book 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, and 56. Deed Book “S” at the Logan County Clerk’s Office has also provided information. Many thanks to the county clerks and their employees who have always been so helpful to my research these past twenty-five years.
