*Notes:
No. 22 - no surname is given in either the index or the record book, she was indexed with the "E" surnames but it is possible this is the death record for Mary Miller, wife of Jacob Miller Sr.; also her age could be 82, 86 or 87 - very hard to determine

~~~~~

-Transcription note: Every effort has been taken to transcribe the record accurately, but errors are possible. Notes in [brackets] were added by the transcriber. Please use this transcription as a guide only & always consult the original record to confirm the information.
