Federal Mortality Schedule

Clarke County, Iowa

This mortality schedule was taken at the same time as the 1870 federal census. It listed by household people who had died in the year ending June 1870. I had trouble reading some of the family #s. You should always check the microfilm yourself for accuracy (T1156 roll 56).
