Does anyone know the location or existence of any poorhouse records for the county? I came up empty on familysearch. What court records were produced in the 1850s relating to the poorhouse? I would think there would have been an afidavit in which the applicant would prove their poverty. Any idea what court these records would be contained in?
I did find an entry in the order book, but it is just a brief couple of sentences admitting my ancestors to the poorhouse. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
