Death Records

Morgan County IL






**Since deaths were not reported until 1878 and death certificates were not a law until 1916, there are other good sources for deaths such as the following files to click on.

Death Dates Bond Book 1849-1861

1850 Census Mortality Index - (There are no death certificates for 1850 so the 1850 Mortality Noncensus schedule could help researchers.)

1863-1870 Death Dates in Decedents Intestate (without a will) Register

Old Settlers' Necrological List 1879-1899 (Altho the two listed below are included in this one, some are missing in this file so check the following two files, too.)

Old Settlers' Necrological List 1890-91

Old Settlers' Necrological List 1894-95
