Kane County Circuit Court Docket Index

1881-1884
©2001 Transcribed by Kimberly Torp from original documents at the IRAD


These are the folks listed in the index of the Kane County Court Docket from 1881-1884. The numbers after their names refer to what page of the court docket they can be found on. All varieties of cases can be found in the docket - including what seemed to be a large number of folks found to be insane. The original Court Docket can be found at the IRAD in Dekalb, IL. Write to the IRAD at:

Copies are 15 cents a piece. I am not affiliated with the IRAD and they have no clue who I am, so mentioning my name will not help anyone.

This was an original document, and while I did my best to verify the spellings of names against what was in the actual docket, I warn you not to rely solely on my interpretations of the handwriting. Names are listed here as they are in the original index. Use your browser's FIND function to search for names.
