Biographical History

Larry Faria is a businessman and historical documents collector in Missouri.

Administrative History

The Courts of Common Pleas were first established in the Ohio constitution of 1802, and were responsible for criminal and probate proceedings. In the Constitution of 1851 the jurisdiction of the courts were changed, with the Courts of Common Pleas made responsible for criminal and civil proceedings. Probate cases were moved to the newly formed Probate Courts. In the twentieth-century the state constitution was further amended to provide a Court of Common Pleas in each county in Ohio.
