Record Book of Deaths in Litchfield
Scope and Contents
The Record Book of Deaths in Litchfield collection (1971-72-0) is a photocopied record of deaths in Litchfield kept by Charles Trall. The book opens with an index, but the index does not appear to be organized in any fashion. After the index is the actual record of the book. For each person there is an entry which contains the date the person died and how old the person was. For men there usually is a mention of where the person was from, and for women usually is listed a close male relative; it usually mentions their brother or their husband and soemtimes both. There is also a xeroxed copy of marriages in Litchfield also kept by Charles Trall, in the same box with the accession number 1971-100-0. Currently housed in 3A Box 33.
