1850 Mortality Schedule

The information on this page was originally part of the Genealogical Society of Page County (GSPC) website. GSPC was dissolved in 2005. Permission has been granted for use by Teresa Kelley


Every column in the schedule has been transcribed. Every effort has been made to transcribe this schedule as written. There may be some errors, but these will mostly be errors in interpretation of writing as opposed to errors of omission. There are some obvious errors made by the census taker in recording sex, for instance, but they have been transcribed exactly as written. Names have been alphabetized.
