 Owsley County Death Records 1852-1944

 This book includes all the official death records for Owsley County, Kentucky for the years 1852-1944. It is necessarily
limited since the surviving records only cover 1852-59, 1859-60, 1869-70, 1874, 1876-78, 1879-80, 1908-10, and 1911-1944.
Even those years are incomplete; I estimate that only about half the deaths from 1911-1944 had certificates filed.

There are three types of records here:

 (1) Vital Statistics for the calendar years 1852-59, 1874, 1876-78, and 1908-10. These are available on microfilm at the
Kentucky Historical Society (KHS), the Kenton County Public Library (KCPL), and the Kentucky Department for
Libraries and Archives (KDLA). Only KDLA has the 1908-1910. KDLA sells 35mm microfilm copies of these records
at a very reasonable price.

(2) Census Mortality Schedules for 1860, 1870, and 1880. Each one covers a twelve-month span so the 1860 census has
some deaths from 1859, etc. Available at the KCPL, KDLA and KHS.

(3) Death Certificates from January 1, 1911 to December 31, 1944. This is every certificate I could find where the
place of death was Owsley County or the certificate was filed from Owsley County. Owsley residents who died
in other counties are not listed here. Available on microfilm at the KCPL, KDLA, KHS, and the Filson Club. The index
to the death certificates is available at those locations plus at every county health office in the state of Kentucky.
If you have a computer with Internet access, the index is available on-line at the University of Kentucky home page.
Copies of death certificates may be ordered from the Office of Vital Statistics, 275 E Main St., Frankfort, KY 40621.
The price was $6.00 the last time I bought one.

 A "/" character separates items from different columns or different spaces on the original documents. "d", "m", and "y"
stand for "days", "months", and "years" respectively. Material in square brackets [ ] is not on the original document.
Personal names and causes of death are spelled exactly as they appeared on the original (to the best of my eyesight);
minor spelling errors in place names have been corrected and the format of dates made uniform.
