Deaths Index 1870-1885

This index lists deaths recorded in the county for the years 1870-1885. It is arranged alphabetically by surname and includes the date of death, the location of death- usually the township in the county, and the birthplace. The age at death is given in years, months and days, and can be used to extrapolate the birth date.

These names are extracted from Book A held by the county recorders office. If you would like a certified copy of the death record, contact the county recorders office.

In addition to the data shown here, the Historical Society's database for this index also lists the book and page number.

Thanks go to volunteer Gail Holdeman for transcribing these records.
