1860 MORTALITY TABLES

Enumerated by A. Mayfield


The information in this table was taken from information transcribed by Lowell M. Volkel from originals in the Illinois State Archives, Springfield, Illinois. As with all transcriptions the researcher is advised to use with care and to verify information independently. The name and spelling of the disease is as written. Thanks to Dorothy Falk for obtaining copies ofthe mortality tables for this project.


The mortality schedules were part of the 1860 Federal Census. It included everyone who died in the year prior to the beginning of the census and included only those who normally resided in the county. There were 11 columns including one for color and one for free or slave. Those two were skipped in Logan County. The ages as a fraction, e.g., 2/12, are infants. 2/12 is 2 months. The 1860 Federal Census began on June 1, 1860.
