1850 Mortality Census



Transcriber's Note: It appears that two separate schedules were done, one by a person who clearly couldn't spell well and didn't quite know how to fill out the form.

There are three pages to the information - the first two have blank lines in them which appears to be the parent name, or household name followed by the name of the person who died. Page 2 of these has a big "Duplicate" written across it, but not page 1. Page 3 is the more normal one, but it does have slightly different information - sometimes the name of an infant wasn't stated on page 3, but is shown on pages 1 or 2. Sometimes it was just the last name spelled differently. Clearly page 3 has better causes of death.

By the dates on them, it looks like they sent back pages 1 and 2 to be redone in 1852
