Caldwell County Death Records

Caldwell County, Missouri 
Mortality Records of 1850 & 1860 

Source: Ancestry.com

Description:
This collection of mortality records adds to the growing number of databases in the "Ellsberry Collection." The database was compiled by long-time researcher, school teacher, and professional genealogist Elizabeth Ellsberry. These mortality records include first and last names, birth location, death date, age and gender.

Ms. Ellsberry began genealogical publication in 1958, when she published her own family history, The Warrens and You. In researching her own family, she found that libraries needed additional information from cemetery records, wills, land records, probate records, census records, etc., to help people with their family history. Ellsberry decided that she wanted to help by publishing books that contained solid genealogical data. She taught school for 34 years, but on weekends and summer vacation, she would travel around to different courthouses and cemeteries, recording the information she found. She also corresponded with several researchers and helped them in their research. Ellsberry self-published more than 300 books, and most of them are available for sale. 

Most of the compilation of these books took place between 1958 and into the 1970s, so the recorded information should include the cemetery and/or courthouse records of that time period.
