MORGAN COUNTY INDIANA 1850 FEDERAL CENSUS MORTALITY SCHEDULE

Copyright 1996 Morgan County Public Library

The 1850 Federal Census Mortality Schedule for Morgan County lists those who died in the twelve month period prior to the enumeration of the census: 01 Jun 1849 - 31 May 1850. This was the first attempt by the U.S. Government to collect vital statistics on its citizens. Mortality schedules were taken in 1850 through 1900, but the 1890 and 1900 schedules were destroyed.

This list is a transcription of the "Index to the Indiana Mortality Schedules of Indiana 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880" compiled by the Genealogy Division of the Indiana State Library. Microfilms of the Indiana mortality schedules are available in the Genealogy Division of the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis.
