1870 MORTALITY SCHEDULE

This information was taken from the original pages of the 1870 Mortality Schedule stored in the Marshall County Historical Museum. Unfortunately, the pages for Center and West Townships are not among them.

Note: "No." indicates household number on the original census. However in looking for some of the families, I found them often a household or two on either side of the number.

Not all Twps. are represented. The indexes come from records at the Marshall County Historical Museum and some townships are missing.
