"No official death records exist prior to 1878. This is an unofficial listing of the people that died between 1 June 1849 and 31 May 1850, the census year, as collected by the census takers for the first time. If a family moved away since a member died, the information was given by a neighbor who still lived there, and although they guessed their best, some deaths were probably forgotten, others could be off a few years in age, etc. Writing was difficult to transcribe, so as always, check for several spellings. Spellings, often phonetically, were left as written on the microfilm. Even more than usual, use with a grain of caution. But it beats nothing." Carol Ryan-Spenader
