1878 Deaths – Warren County

The following is a list of deaths of Warren County, Kentucky, for 1878. Whoever filled out this form did a great job. Generally there are columns of information missing. There are several occupations for the men who died – three farmers (sometimes all have this occupation), a cooper, merchant, writer, upholsterer, carder of wool and doctor. I was also interested in the number of people born overseas – France and Europe – with more parents born there. I hope someone can use this information!
