1820s Court Records Lookup, Please?

Kentuckiana Genealogy: County: Jennings Co., Indiana: 1820s Court Records Lookup, Please?
By Mark Danielson ( on Monday, January 26, 2004 - 11:35 am:

I have discovered a clue about an ancestor, but it requires somebody checking the Jennings County court records.

In The Executive Proceedings of Indiana, 1816-1836,(published by Indiana Historical Bureau in 1947), on page 347:

1829 Pardons and Remissions
Feb. 2 A fine against Robert RODGERS for $ ______ (MS is blank) upon conviction before John DUNSTON; a justice of the peace of Jennings County. is remitted---

[A footnote reads:]

A marginal notation in pencil reads "Vawter to pay." The petitioner's name appears as ROGERS.

End quote

I would like to find out what count Robert Rodgers/Rogers was convicted upon. I am assuming that John Vawter was the man who paid for him. I would dearly appreciate anybody who is around the Jennings County files looking up Judge Dunston's records to find out for me.

Many thanks,
Mark Danielson
