1860 Monroe County Deaths

(This is from a post made by Sandi Gorin to the South-Central-KY list.)

Taken from the microfilmed records on the special census. Abbreviationshopefully are self-evident. The last number is the number of days ill. I have been asked if there are older deaths ... no, not that I have found yet!
