Pre-1905 Calif Death Index
Klamath County was created in 1851 from the northern half of Trinity County's mostly mountainous mining country. In 1857 Klamath County, in turn, lost significant territory to the newly formed Del Norte County. In 1875, as charges of corruption in the county increased, Klamath County was abolished. Its territory was divided between Humboldt and Siskiyou counties. Territory which was at one time in Klamath County is now in Del Norte, Humboldt, Siskiyou and Trinity counties.
The Klamath Death Index presented here displays only a few records and the dates shown are not actual death dates but are the dates of Court Proceedings started after the person's death. We hope to find more information on this county but for now, this is all we have been able to come up with.
