1908 - 1924

Forrest County was created from the 2nd Judicial District of PErry County in 1908.

 This is an abstract of public records found in the office of the Forrest County Chanceery Clerk in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The documents were presented to the clerk for filing and recording. The clerk copied the documents into the record book and it is the clerk's typed or handwritten copies of the original documents that are abstracted here. Sometimes spellings varied and names and initials were interchanged. I tried to write what the clerk wrote. Sometimes there are names but no relationship with the testator is given and sometimes the relationship is given but not the name. If you request copies from the clerk's office please note the full title of the book including the dates. If the document is multipaged you will need to request copies of each page.
