DeKalb County, Missouri

The "Mortality Schedules" are records of persons who died in the twelve months prior to the taking of the census on June 1st.  Therefore, the schedule for 186 would cover deaths from June 1st, 1859 to May 31st, 1860.  The census taker was supposed to make a record of these deaths at the time he obtained the census information.  It is known that most of the mortality schedules are incomplete, many deaths not having been reported, but they do give us a record of many deaths.

The counties given here are those whose courthouses were destroyed by fire, resulting in the loss of most of the court records.  For the sakeof space,deaths of children under ten years of age are not listed.
