Volume and Page Search
Volumes 1, 1.5, 2, 3, and 4. Original records were destroyed due to fire and floods. The public was encouraged to voluntarily come to court and record their families' death records. Due to those circumstances the records are not complete. Recorded dates of death are from July 9, 1881 to June 20, 1908. These volumes have no master index. Use page number 0 (zero) to retrieve the index for each individual volume. The names are in alphabetical order only by the first letter of the last name so the entire grouping for that letter may have to be searched. Note that these are Death Records not Death Certificates. A Death Record is a documentary account of past events, designed to memorialize those events. A Death Certificate is a document in which basic facts regarding a person's death are formally attested.
