1880
Macon Co. Mortality Schedule


This is a transcription of the Mortality Schedule for the 1880 Macon County, IL Federal census. It's a listing of those who died the previous year, that is, between 1 June 1879 and 31 May 1880. This useful tool predates most state mandated vital records, although it's doubtful this list is a complete listing of everyone who died during that 12 month period, as it was all too easy to overlook someone.


The original enumeration which was microfilmed was in poor shape, so there will be areas that could not be read.
