Crook County Coroner's Reports 1882-1950

These records document the results of the examination of a corpse by the county coroner at the request of the county sheriff. They also record the proceedings and results of inquests ordered by the district attorney. Reports include date filed; name, age, sex, race, parentage, and birthplace of deceased; date, place, and time of death; names of undertaker and coroner; testimony; and costs. Early reports were narrative accounts detailing the cause of death. After 1900, a standardized form was used for reporting results. Inquest transcripts include coroner and juror names, signatures, and actions; witness names; testimony; and verdict. By the mid-1960s the office of coroner had been abolished and the duties were assumed by the State Medical Examiner.

Note: This is not a complete listing, just what the clerk's office has remaining. Many of them are very difficult to read due to the age and use of pencil, which has faded.
