Transcribed by the Lake County Genealogical Society from records at Spear Funeral Home, extracted by Linda Jeffery 2005.

What funeral home these are from is unstated, but from the dates included and place found, it is most likely from E. D. Keener Funeral Home. The original book still contains 272 pages, ending Sept. 28, 1888. 286 pages are indexed and included below. Those now missing pages include Emmily Brown, Baby Cone, Kirby, Bessie Purtell, Ed Searl, and Ora Underwood as well as some later ones included below that are not indexed. The back cover is also missing. Each entry is a page and may include the date, person's name, address, age, size of casket, checklist of services and products with prices listed and a total cost.
