Mortality Schedule

from the

1885 Florida State Census

 

 

 

In addition to the Population Schedule, Agriculture, Manufacturing, and Mortality Schedules were taken in connection with the 1885 Florida State Census enumeration. This Mortality Schedule is important to the genealogist because deaths were not always recorded during this time period and because the 1890 Federal Census was destroyed.

 

The Mortality Schedule enumerated deaths that occurred during the census year: June 1, 1884, to May 31, 1885. R. F. Ximanes was the enumerator who recorded the following information about the deceased:

Name, age, sex, color, marital status.

Note: Age at last birthday is given. If less than one year, age is given as a fraction; i.e., 4/12 means the infant was four months old.

Birthplace of deceased, birthplace of parents.

Occupation of deceased.

Month in which person died, cause of death

How long deceased lived in the county; fractions used for less than one year.

Name of attending physician. The enumerator was instructed to A...note distinctly if no Physician was in attendance thus (None).@
