Deaths Abstracted from the Camp Point Journal, 1873-1882, Camp Point, Adams County, Illinois


Deaths Abstracted from The Camp Point Journal, 1873-1882, Camp Point, Adams County, Illinois - Mrs. Joseph J. Beals Sr. and Mrs. Sandra Kirchner. While conducting research on their own families in early Illinois newspapers, Mrs. Beals and Mrs. Kirchner realized that others could benefit from the wealth of genealogical material they had discovered. This volume is the result of their continuing efforts to make this valuable information on Illinois families available to fellow researchers and historians. The deaths and related items included here are abstracted from the articles and notices appearing in The Camp Point Journal and dated between the years 1873 and 1882. Records are listed alphabetically by the name of the principal subject in each entry. The entries themselves are often rich in interesting information about the deceased, their family members, or others who were in some way connected to the deceased. Many entries include the names of spouses, children, parents, other relatives, friends, physicians, pastors, and often those who discovered the body of the deceased. Supplemental information on the circumstances surrounding the death are usually included. In cases of murder, the perpetrator is often named as well.
