Births, Marriages and Deaths:
Published in the Columbus newspapers. Although I cannot guarantee that I have found every mention of a birth, marriage or death, I have completed my search of the papers through 1890. NOTE: Please note that the designation of Birth, Marriage or Death, along with the surname in caps, is NOT part of the printed article. That has been included only for ease in locating the information.

Index to Obituaries Published in the Columbus Telegram (Off site)


Miscellaneous obituaries:
NOTE: Please send your obituaries to me for posting. Complete obituaries may be posted that are from any paper earlier than 1923 and all those from the Columbus Telegram and Schuyler Sun. Information will need to be abstracted from later editions to avoid copyright violations.

Probate Records:
This index was taken from the Platte County Court's probate index book which includes filings through 1989. As with all records, misspellings abound, so please check carefully for your name of interest. Entry includes name and date of death, if recorded, or year of filing. - WITH ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS!!!

PLEASE NOTE: When the file contents were microfilmed recently, it was learned that some files are missing. As I find this information, I will mark the name with **. I hesitate removing the name because it may be helpful to you to know approximately when this person died and that he/she was in Platte County. Please do not request copies from the Court if there are ** in front of the name.
