Can anyone tell me where I might find records for the poor house from 1840? I have tried the archives, the county clerk, and the county museum. NO luck. I know there was one. In a deed book, we found our Polly Jennings in 1842. The court directed the Keeper of the poor house of this county to take care of her until further notice. I have contacted the Clerk's office, the records and deeds office, the county museum, but no one has heard of said poor house. Thank you!
