Doreen, these Ohio divorces are much older than what we have access to. Much older Ohio divorce records may prove difficult to find with conventional public record resources or even the Ohio Department of Health, which archives these types of vital records. A good option to consider is to lookup these OH divorce records in genealogy records or newspaper archives. They may have some useful information for your research
