This schedule was transcribed by the former Coordinator of this site, Linda Suarez. Our thanks to Linda for her dedication and hard work!
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 1880 Iowa Mortality Census:
All of the above columns are displayed with the exception of: color, place disease contracted and name of attending physician. Additional information shown is the town/township where death is listed in 1880 Mortality Schedule. Unless otherwise noted, deaths listed occurred between June 1, 1879 and May 31, 1880. Rows that are struck out appear that way in the census.
