Focused on the indexes and did not find any entries that looked promising. The earliest mortgage book index was dated in the 1900’s, so we were directed to the records building behind the Recorder’s Office at 221 Clinton, Defiance, Ohio. Went to the records building, but looked pretty deserted (it was lunch time), so saved the mortgage records for a later date. Also want to look at tax records for the time span ca 1867 – 1880.
