Hardin County - 1870 Iowa Mortality Schedule


This schedule is hard to read in many respects. As we all know, older records are inherently hard to decipher. Capital L and I are almost indistinquishable one from the other as are W, H and N. Lower case n and v are also hard to determine. Even though every attempt has been made to check and double check these records for errors the researcher is advised to look at all possible spellings when using this index.

Columns in the 1870 Iowa Mortality Census:

  1. Number of the family as given in the 2nd column of Schedule 1 [1870 Federal Census].
  2. Name of person who died during the year ending June 1, 1870, whose place of abode at the time of death was in the family.
  3. Age last birth-day.  If under one year, give months in fractions, as 3/12.
  4. Sex - males (M), females (F).
  5. Color - white (W), black (B), Mulatto (M), Chinese (Ch), Indian (I).
  6. Married (W) or Widowed (W).
  7. Place of birth, naming the State or Territory of the U.S., or the country, if of foreign birth.
  8. Father of foreign birth.
  9. Mother of foreign birth.
  10. The month in which the person died.
  11. Profession, Occupation, or Trade.
  12. Disease or Cause of Death

All of the above columns are displayed here with the exception of:  color, father of foreign birth, mother of foreign birth.   Additional information shown is the township where death is listed in 1870 Mortality Schedule and page no.  Deaths listed occurred between
