This is an every name index to the people in this book created by MAXINE MARSHALL. Years ago Maxine offered us this index but we were using one created by MARY ANN WOOD, now deceased, for our society at the time. Mary Ann's work is copyrighted by the Gallia County Genealogical Society, OGS Chapter and we have not compared the two works. As Maxine had this work completed in the format easily placed on the website we decided to go with her work this time. When this work goes on the website, it is also considered copyrighted.
If you are interested in owning a reprint of Hardesty's, the book is for sale by a Gallipolis church and the OGS Chapter can get copies for you. Just contact us and we will get you the cost and postage. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
