Custody History

After the precinct was eliminated in a reorganization of the justice courts in Millard County the records dating from 1901-1934 were transferred to the county clerk, who transferred them to the State Archives in 1988. The docket dating from 1876-1883 came into the possession of the Fillmore City Recorder at some point in time. It was microfilmed by the State Archives in 2015 and the Recorder transferred the original to the Archives for preservation.
