The Mortality Schedule was transcribed by Renee Smelley in June and July 2002 from the Mortality Schedule Microfilm and has been recorded to the best of my ability. There are only two pages of the 1880 Live Oak Mortality Schedule.

Page 1 | Page 2

Page No. 1

Supervisors Dist No. 6

Enumeration Dist. No. 101

Schedule 5 --- Persons who DIED during the year ending May 31, 1880, enumerated by me in Oakville, in the county of Live Oak, State of Texas, G. C. Miller.

Column Descriptions

1st Column = Number of the family as given in column numbered 2, Schedule 1 (note: this is referring to the family number on the 1880 McMullen County Census and the family number link will take you to the index page this family is located on.)

Renee -

On the 1880 Mortality Schedule for LOC, I might be able to help with some of
the names.

On Line 2, I think the enumerator has written over the first letter and that
the name is Nations, which was a family in the County. I will check on the
first name for you.

On Line 10, the last name is Swearingen.

On Line 12, the last name is O'Bryan (O'Brian) and the first name is Bridget.

On Line 13, the name is J. Humphreys (with the "s" on the end) Henry
Also, I think the Cch on the month is probably Oct. The enumerator seems to
leave a lot of "gaps" at the top of his letters, doesn't he?
