Special thanks to Laurie Huffman for this transcription. She worked many many hours using a barely readable microfilm copy of the records. The Brown County Clerks Office confirmed that the original was in the same condition.
Verification of the accuracy of this transcription will be an ongoing process for some time into the future. Your contributions are welcome. If you find entries that you can complete or correct from other sources, please write to:Ken Huffman
