DEATHS FROM THE 1865 STATE CENSUS

Columbia County, New York

The following list was taken from the 1865 State Census for Columbia County.  Published by HeritageQuest, PO Box 540670, North Salt Lake, Utah 84064-0670

The microfilm is extremely light and very hard to read in places, I have typed a [?] where the text is either questionable or unreadable.  The original document should be checked to verify the information.

All spelling is as found in the census.

On top of each section for the deaths is "DEATHS occurring during the year ending June 1, 1865, excepting those of persons in the service of the United States, or from wounds or disease acquired in said service."
