Boone County Mortality Index - 1850

Included in the 1850 census was a mortality schedule that asked questions regarding those who died in the twelve months prior to the enumeration. It lists persons who died between 1 June and 31 May of the year prior to the census. This database is an index extraction for  Boone County, Indiana. The schedule lists the deceased name, sex, age, place of birth, month of death, occupation, and cause of death. Mortality schedules are essentially death registers that predate the recording of most Boone County vital statistics. While deaths are under-reported, the mortality schedules remain an invaluable source of information. Remember that an index is only a reference to more detailed information found in the census records themselves. It is important that researchers consult the actual mortality census records to which this index refers. These can be found at the National Archives and regional archives, LDS Family History Libraries and Centers, and at many large libraries.

Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. And my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.

W. Somerset Maugham
1874 - 1965
Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.

Mark Twain
