Death Record Index
It was difficult in the 1800’s to keep records and not all vital records were reported. Sometimes people providing information did not read, write or speak English. Those who did speak English often had accents which made communication difficult to understand and to spell. The persons collecting the information might also have had their own language barriers. Therefore, you should look for all possible variations of spellings.
Notice the index information is hand written. Handwriting can be difficult to interpret when transcripts and certified copies are made. Providing actual copies of records is not possible. Records sometimes cross one page into a second page. Only transcript type copies can be made. An index is a tool used to assist in locating records. Death index information is believed to be accurate but accuracy is not guaranteed.
If you have questions or would like to purchase a transcript of a record found in the index contact the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County. Transcript fee information can be found under Research Holdings (scroll down the page to "Death Records").
