Coroner's Inquests, 1910-1921
Vanderburgh Co., IN 
Submitted by Lyn Martin
 
The following information was pulled from cards given to Willard Library by Kay Lant. 
The cards include quite a bit of information including the name of the deceased, death date, 
residence, age, cause of death, interment, doctor and/or clergy names, etc. Not all cards have all 
information, but many are fairly complete. Computerized data entry of this information is being 
completed, and should be accessible at Willard Library at a later date, either in book or computer 
format. Due to space limitations, only a portion of the information is included here.
