Finally, there are no guarantees about the accuracy of this information.  Information on deaths prior to 1908, when death certificates were first issued, was difficult to locate.  Information on death certificates, tombstones, cemetery records, court house records and census records was often incomplete, contradictory and/or difficult to read.  Variations in spelling were common.
