Spring Valley Township

Spring Valley Township was originally the upper portion of what is now Clinton Township. This information is from the original, hand written books and are available at the Clinton County Historical Society Museum. Following is the 1902 Assessor's Book records. I will be adding other years as well.

The first part of the book is a list of Persons to do Military Duty. The list includes the Name, Age, Post Office, Nationality and Occupation. All the men had POs of Lyons or Clinton and I did not include that column. Names are in the order they were written, not alphabetical.

The next pages were space for "Enumeration of Soldier's Orphan's" which would list the Soldier, Company, Regiment and Child but those pages are all blank.

The final pages list the Owner's Name, Polls, Under 45, Over 45, Name or Number of School District, Number of Road District, New Buildings, Horses, Mules, Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Swine, Dogs, Vehicles, Money in the Bank, Credit, Value of Other Personal Property, Total Actual Value of All Personal Property and Total Taxable along with the PO Address which were mostly Lyons. I just listed each name.
