1850 Census Mortality Schedule

Submitted by the transcriber, Connie Burkett, and presented here with gratitude for her efforts.

The Mortality Schedule, taken in conjunction with the 1850 federal Census, included questions regarding those who died in the twelve months prior to the enumeration date, June 1. Even though mortality schedules are widely believed to under-report actual numbers of deceased, this is still a valuable source of information. The schedule lists the deceased’s name, sex, age, color, free or slave, married or widowed, place of birth, month of death, occupation, cause of death, and number of days ill prior to death.
