Description

The Overseers of the Poor were gentlemen and property owners selected by the county court to protect the poor and indigent of the county. They were responsible for setting the Poor Rate and seeing that it was collected; from that, they received a payment for their services and allotted monies to assist persons in need. This book covers most of the first fifty years of Cabell County's existence (the period under Virginia control).show more
