Apprentice's Records 1867-1870

Index

Contents of the Documents

There are two books. The second one seemed to be Bonds of the people mentioned in the first book. The last two were only mentioned in the second book. Although the LDS statement with the microfilm says that some parents are mentioned, I did not find any. If you feel that one of these are your ancestor, I think it would be good to check the microfilm yourself. MLB

It is ordered by the Court that the said Mary Iley be apprenticed to the Said J. S. O. Brooks under the Apprentice law passed at the last Legislature 1866. and the Said Mary Ily is to remain with the said J. S. O. Brooks until she arrives at the age of Eighteen years old unless sooner marries, the Said J. S. O. Brooks is to furnish the said Mary Iley with Good Comfortable Clothing and food and he is further required to give her a sufficient English Education to learn her to spell and read and further when she married, the said J. S. O. Brooks is to furnish her three cows and calves or the Value thereof to the amount of fifty Dollars cash for the faithful performances of which he (the said Brooks) is required to give bond in the sum of two hundred Dollars.

In another one it added medical attention and gave 2 suits of clothes and a cow and a calf.

The males were were expected to stay until they were 21 and they received a good Horse, Briddle and saddle worth at least $100.

Another note in them was that the Apprentices were to behave themselves discretely unto the Person Apprenticed to and all his family.
