Vinton County Ohio - 1850 Mortality Schedule

All data was copied from the National Archives Microcopy T1159 Roll 15, Call number 929.3771Fe
Mortality Schedules - Ohio 1850, Medina Co. - Wyandot Co.
This is Schedule 3 of the 1850 Federal Census. It consists of three pages of information about people who died in the year preceeding the census. Therefore this is a list of people who died during the year ending 1 June 1850.
In addition, the compiler of the Mortality Schedule included comments about the minerals and farming conditions of the county. I have included these comments in a separate file which is at this link.

Columns shown with a number here are:
4- color (assume white if no entry; M=mulatto)
5- free or slave (all in Vinton County have no entry, therefore assume Free)
6- married or widowed (M or W, if no entry assume single)

Cause of death:
Some of the diseases mentioned are:
The names in this list are in the order in which they occured in schedule 3, which may possibly be used to determine in which family they occured in the population census if schedule 3 was filled out at the same time. However if it was created from doctor's records, the deaths would not be in the same order.
The following group of people are on two pages headed as "District 148 in the County of Vinton, state of Ohio enumerated by me. David Jones, ass't. Marshal.
