Bounties Paid to Marshall County, Indiana Residents for Wolf Scalps (1845-1857)

Contributed by Marshall County Historical Society

Source: Handwritten forms in the collection of the Marshall County Historical Society. These forms were filled out by the Marshall County Clerk to keep track of the bounties the county had paid to residents for turning in the scalps of wolves they had killed. In the 19th century, wolves were considered harmful predators that killed farm animals including calves, lambs, chickens and ducks.
