YOGS83  CRAZY CRATE 83  BOOK 1,2 AND 3:  1850 INDIANA MORTALITY SCHEDULES, THREE VOLUMES.  Background information for all three volumes.  For the first time in the year 1850 all the members of a household were recorded by full name, age, sex and color, and state or country where born on the regular Population Schedules.  Several other schedules were taken at the same time.
 


 

Another schedule was the Mortality Schedule.  In lieu of a standard system of death registration throughout the United States, the Federal Government adopted the use of this Mortality Schedule to aid in the compilation of certain cause of death and health statistics.  This schedule listed only those people who died within the year prior to the beginning of the census enumeration.  For the 1850 schedules, only those deaths occurring between June 1, 1849, and May 31, 1850, would be listed.  It did not include all deaths of the past decade since 1840.  The form did include 11 columns.  They are as follows.  For each person who died in that time period, the census taker listed these eleven items. 

1.)   Name of Every Person Who Died During theYear ending 1st June, 1850, whose usualabode at the Time of his/her Death was inthis Family.

2.)   Age. (Years understood, Months marked in  fractions such as: 1/12, 2/12, 3/12, etcto 11/12.; OR w= # of Weeks, OR #of days.

3.)   Sex. M(ale)/F(emale.

4.)   Color.  (White, Black or Mulatto).

5.)   Free or Slave.

6.)   Married or Widowed.      

7.)   Place of Birth, (Naming the State, Territory,  or Country).

8.)   The Month in which the Person died.

9.)   Profession, Occupation, or Trade.

10.)  Disease, or Cause of Death.

11.)  Number of Days Ill.

 

These three books are not an Index to the Indiana 1850 Mortality Schedule.  These books show, as given on the original schedule, all the information for all eleven columns!  Identifying Location Information:  INDIANA / JEFFERSON COUNTY, District No. 58, page 584:  Sample entry: (1.) William Stapp, (2.) 20 (years), (3.) m(ale), 4.) not marked-white understood, (5. f(ree), (6.) not marked-single understood, (7.) Indiana, (8.) Mar(ch), (9.) Clerk, (10.) Epilepsy, (11.) C(ause of Death).  The original schedules were located in the Genealogy Division, Indiana State Library in 1971, when Lowell Volkel, Assistant State Archivist in Illinois, read, transcribed and indexed these books.  When you stop and think about it, where else are you going to get this much information about someone who died in late 1849 or early 1850?  Death records were not required until 1882 in Indiana!

VOLUME 3 OF 3.  1850 INDIANA MORTALITY SCHEDULE.  COUNTIES PULASKI THROUGH WHITLEY.  By Lowell M. Volkel, AssistantState Archivist of Illinois, ©1971, Reprinted 1976,   Published by Heritage House. (YOGS).  1981.  106 pages. cardstock covers, stapled three times.  The Schedule itself with all the details takes 81 pages. The index begins on Page 82 and runs to page 106 with three columns of names each having 55 names. So 55 names per column, times 3 columns per page, times 25 pages means there are approximately somewhat over 4,000 names of people of all ages who died in Illinois in the one year between June 1, 1849 and May 31, 1850 with the eleven columns of information which will lead you directly to the county and township/district of the 1850 Population Schedule in which you need to look to find the remainder of their family.  What a help!

This Abstract of the 1850 Mortality Schedules lists every surname with two or more entries:Abernathy 2, Adams 3, Addington 3, Addleman 2,Ago 2, Alexander 4, Alkire 2, All 3, Allee 4, Allen 11, Allison 4, Althiser 2, Alvis 3, Anderson 16, Angel 2, Archibald 2, Armer 3, Armstrong 2, Arnold 8, Ash 4, Ashta 2, Ashton 2, Atkinson 5, Badger 3, Bailey 10, Baily 3, Baker 4, Baldwin 5, Ball 2, Banks 2, Barber 2, Barnes 5, Barnett3, Barns 2, Barr 2, Barrett 3, Barron 2, Barton 2, Bassett 2, Bates 2, Beach 2, Beard 3, Bechtol 2, Beckets 2, Beckman 2, Beckner 2, Belk 3, Bell 3, Benjamin 2, Bennet 10, Bennett 4, Benson 4, Berry 2, Bever 2, Bitner 2, Black 3, Blackburn 4, Blakesly 2, Boochr 2, Boblet/t 2, Bodkin 2, Bond 3, Bowen 3, Bowles 2, Boyles 2, Brackenridge 2, Brackney 2, Bradley 2, Brady 2, Brancamp 2, Brandenburg 2, Brewer 2, Briggs 3, Brizendine 2, Brock 2, Brooks 2, Brooner 2, Brown 24, Bryant 3, Buck 2, Buckles 2, Buhl 3, Bumgardner 2, Bunce 2, Bunch 2, Bunker, Burget/te 3, Burk, Burnes 2, Burns 3, Burroughs 2, Burrows 3, Bush 2, Butler 6, Cain 2, Caison 3, Call 2, Call(a/i)han 2, Campbell 10, Canfield 2, Cannon 2, Cardstude 2, Carpenter 3, Carr 7, Carson 4, Carter 7, Case 6, Castor 2, Caswell 4, Caten 2, Catte(n/r)man 2, Chapman 2, Chapp(el/le) 2, Charles 3, Chase 3, Chast(e/ee)n 2, Chastine 2, Ch(e/i)now(e/i)th 4,

Reading the script of any census is a delicate matter.  By the time we get to the reading of, not the original, which can be seen at the National Archives, up to the 1870s, but a microfilm copy thereof, we realize that the copy itself may be flawed!  The original information given to the census taker may not have been correct.  Some people may have thought the Federal Government wanted the information for their own, perhaps nefarious, reasons or purposes, such as coerced military service, or tax collecting.  They may have not known the exact truth, but felt they had to say something.  They mayhave shaded the truth, or deliberately uttered falsehoods to protect themselves.  Or, depending on the person they asked when collecting the information, that person may not have even known the truth, or decided not to answer all the census taker's questions because of lack of knowledge.  Remember the only "calendar" most pioneer's had was the Farmer's Almanac!  The person giving the information to the census-taker mght not have known how to reaad and/or write.  They might not even speak or understand English!  They may be hard-of-hearing or deaf.  Even if they do give the information, properly, the census taker could be hard-of-hearing or not understand what they were actually attempting to say.  False teeth were not in universal use by 1850, and many people did not know exactly how to spell their own names, anyway, so even if the census-taker asked for further information, they might not have  been able to give it to him.

Then the census-taker had to copy all the information on to another sheet to turn in and then someone had to copy the schedules to send to Washington sometime later.  Depending on the census taker's skill in penmanship, because the suggestion was that they should be, if possible or practical, former military men, he may not be very skilled at even reading his own handwriting. 
 

Didn't you always think it was funny that most all of those early 1800 census schedules were lined up in alphabetical order by the first letter of the surname?  I don't think he asked the people to line up that way, so he could ask them questions in that order, do you? 
 

So many opportunities for a mistake in spelling had already been made even before the microfilming was done.  So when looking for your surname, stop and think of all the letter combinations that would possibly be read as something approaching, or capable of being interpreted as, your surname.   


 

Every time we have been to the Second Floor Reading Room in the National Archives, back in the 1970s and 1980s, where the microfilm for all the censuses already released to the 1870s, can be accessed, the staff was very gracious about bringing the books from their open storage space up to the reading room if their microfilm could not be read.  They would like for you o request the actual book the day before you want to look at it.  You can also use their printers that print off an entire page of microfilm from the census that is the size of a newspaper sheet!

If they agree the microfilm  can not be read, that having been tried, the book is there waiting for you when you come in the next morning.  During our stay in Washington, D.C. - we were attending their summer week-long genealogy course, during which we heard the best speakers in the country sharing their expertise and extensive knowledge both of genealogy and the National Archives with the small select group of less than forty of us who were attending.  Charles M. Franklin, who was the full-time researcher for our shop for over twenty years and the author of over 175 books which we still publish, Ray, my husband and partner, in this wonderful endeavor that is our Shoppe, and I had a wonderful time visiting the memorials, and also exploring Washington, D.C., the D.A.R. Library, The National Archives, the Library of Congress, and The Smithsonian Institution, among others.

We were there an entire week and it was a pleasure trip, a business trip - we had brought a large display to show at a seminar in Baltimore, Maryland, the weekend before the Institute.  On the way over we had stopped in New Castle, Henry County, Indiana, to do some research on Ray's Quaker lines, then on to Richmond, Indiana, to do more research on the same Hall, Nicholson, Albertson, Newby and Pearson Family Lines.  The next stop was in Dayton to visit their Genealogy Room and then to Columbus, Ohio, to check their State Library and Historical Societies' Genealogy index to Early Ohio Histories.  The next day we moved on to do some Pennsylvania Research and to visit Pittsburgh's Western Pennsylvania's Genealogical Society's Library. [My greatest find there was information that my ancestor's were married seven miles Southwest of Pittsburgh in the mid-1700s, and then a map of the area close to that time.  Then on to the Hoenstein's, Floyd and Barbara's, Rental Library at Holidaysburg, then across to Bedford County and then on to the Mennonite Historical Society in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to research my Van Treese lines.  I was so pleased to find the gentleman who greeted us recognized Hartman Van Treese's name and linked it immediately to the Red Rose Inn, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in the early to mid 1700s.  You can imagine my disappointment to learn it was no longer there!  The Inn's chief claim to fame is that it introduced "napkins" to American Travel Inns.  Poor Katerina Bender, Hartman Van Treese's wife, and their daughters, who wound up washing and ironing 40 cloth napkins three times a day!  Thanks to the gentleman's capable help, we left with a folder full of information on Hartman's family, many of which wound up in Southern Indiana in our state's early years.  Hartman was an innkeeper just like his father John, who owned The King's Tavern  Inn in early Pennsylvania, and was the original Van Treese of my line, arriving with his six sons in 1727.  One of those six sons was Frederick Van Treese of FrederickCounty, Maryland, one of my many great-greats in this country

Next on to Harrisburg's State Library, where we touched base with one of the lady's we would see again in Washington the next week at the Institute, checked to make sure all the copies of the Van Treese Newsletter were properly filed in the huge room where they keep such things.and then to the Archives and History Building, also in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  From there, we angled down to Washington, D. C.  We found parking to be our first challenge.  We had driver our big blue van, and all the parking garages had signs that said, "Beware, low clearance".   We couldn't believe that we had to drive back to the airport and park in their open air parking lot because our van would not fit in the parking garages of Washington, D. C.!  Luckily we had arranged with the Washington Hotel to take their free limousine service back to the hotel from the airport. 

We were a little later than we had expected to arrive there at the hotel, but we were happy to have our van safely parked somewhere that would not scrape off its roof!  We were a tad worried that we were leaving the remnants of that huge display we had taken to Baltimore, Maryland, out there exposed to the weather [Couldn't get it in the regular airport parking garage there either!], but figured we had to leave it somewhere!  I'll finish this story in another issue because I want to get this one posted to you.  I apologize for its being late, but we have another snowstorm here and my computer lost power on Sunday and Monday and my phone was not responding either, so since my tools wouldn't work, I took the day off and kept track of the Tragedy in Tucson 
 

Hope you get some real help for your research from these 1850 Indiana Mortality Schedules!  Pat from YOGS
