This book contains all the death records gathered by the Bureau of Vital Statistics for King George County during the period 1853 to 1896. This collection of abstracts includes the name of the deceased and the date of his or her death, cause of death, age at the time of death, parents, birthplace, spouse, and the informants name and relationship to the deceased. In addition, slave deaths were sometimes recorded by their masters. The information was copied as it appeared in the original records; however, when the author found the discrepancies too obvious to ignore she included short editors notes. Each record is listed in the order in which it appeared; page and line numbers corresponding to the original documents are given.
