Macon Co. Mortality Schedule
This is a transcription of the Mortality Schedule for the 1850 Macon County, IL Federal census. It's a listing of those who died the previous year, that is, between 1 June 1849 and 1 June 1850. 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.
