The Supreme Court began in 1803 and heard appeals from the Common Pleas Court specific to Warren County.  Its decisions were final.  This court was abolished in 1851 and replaced in 1852 by the District Court, which was abolished in 1883 and replaced by the Circuit Court, which was replaced in 1912 by the Court of Appeals, which still is in place today.   WCGS has only indexed a small fraction of the Supreme Court Records available: Chancery Court Records, and Divorce Records, 1803-1843. These records are also available from the Supreme Court:
