Deaths Index 1886-1899

This index lists deaths recorded in the county for the years 1886-1899. 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 B held by the county recorders office. In addition to the information on the deceased that is shown here, the records include color (i.e. race), marital status, date of arrival in Minnesota (always blank, though), disease or cause of death, occupation, names and birthplace of parents, and when the death was registered. If you would like a certified copy of the death record, contact the county recorders office.

Thanks go to volunteer Gail Holdeman for her time transcribing these records.
