The introduction states: "In
1962, all of the schedules reproduced on this roll of microfilm were in the Campus Martius
Museum, Marietta, Ohio.
That year they were loaned to the National Archives for microfilming through
the courtesy of the Museum, the Ohio Historical Society, and the Commissioners
of Washington County, Ohio. At that time, the negative microfilm was
turned over to the Marietta College Library, while the positive was placed in
the Microfilm Reading Room of the National Archives, Washington, DC."
It goes on to explain that the
original microfilm GR4 became scratched and in 1994 it was assigned a new
number, M1804, in order to issue it as an official National Archives Microfilm
