Death in the Town of Lexington 
1847, 1848, 1849


An 1847 law required the school districts in each town of New York State to collect vital statistics. They ceased doing so after a few years, probably due to poor compliance. Transcribed by Sylvia Hasenkopf from a copy of the original records at State Library at Albany.
