1870 Mortality Schedule
Jefferson Co Nebraska

Please Note: These records were transcribed from images of the original mortality schedule. The enumerator occasionally made errors or spelled names as they sounded, and in some cases the writing was difficult to read. This transcription shows the information as the enumerator wrote it and as I translated it. If you have corrections, please Email me

The census year began June 1, 1869 and ended June 1, 1870. Thus if a person is listed on this schedule as dying in June through December, they would have died in 1869. If a person is listed as dying in January through May, they died in 1870.
