Index to 1860 Mortality Schedule for Hendricks County, Indiana

Index © Meredith Thompson

Mortality schedules were taken at the time of the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 federal censuses. When recording the information about each household for the census, the enumerator was also to ask about anyone in the household who had died between 1 June and 31 May of the year prior to the census. This information was to be written on a separate record, called the mortality schedule. Because Indiana did not require deaths to be recorded until 1882, the mortality schedules can provide information on some pre-1882 deaths.

The 1860 mortality schedule recorded information on deaths that had occurred between 1 June 1859 and 31 May 1860. There were columns for: name, age, sex, race, free or slave, married or widowed, birthplace, month of death, occupation, cause of death and number of days ill.

This index does not cover all of the columns of information that were included on the 1860 mortality schedule—you should always consult the actual record. NOTE: Several of the pages did not include the name of the township.

The Indiana State Archives was given the originals of the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 mortality schedules for Indiana; microfilm copies are available at the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis and the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, as well as locally at the Plainfield Public Library. This microfilm can also be ordered through FamilySearch, for viewing at any Family History Center or Family History Affiliate Library.
