Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Record, Jan.
DEATHS, OTOE COUNTY, 1859-60
These records, somewhat abbreviated, are from
the federal census, 1860, Schedule 3, which bears the heading,
"Persons who Died during the Year ending 1st June, 1860,-----" The
original manuscript of this Nebraska census was made in duplicate
and an incomplete copy is now to be found at the University of
Nebraska library. Unfortunately the families were not identified
in the records of 1860, as they were in the records of 1870.
Nebraska City papers of this period contain very few death
notices. An examination of these shows that the deaths were not
listed in the census if the party who died did not belong to an
Otoe County family, or if the family had removed from the county
before the census was taken.(a)
