In Reply to: DEATH RECORDS bef 1910---BOOK LOST by Brenda Land Dice of 704

The book of deaths which was lost contained records between Nov 22, 1896 and Oct 21, 1899. Records of births for around that same time were lost too. You will have to resort to resources that genealogists use for whenever a courthouse elsewhere burned or records were otherwise damaged or destroyed. Have you tried looking for a will/probate records? What about siblings records? Not all cemetery stones have survived thru the ages - any markers carved in wood or inexpensive stone deteriorated thru time & weather, animals or humans. You'll need to be a little innovative and continue the detective type work that have challenged genealogists thru the years! Good luck!
