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 1883 and 1892. Records are listed alphabetically by the name of the principal subject in each entry, the entries themselves 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; these names are cross-referenced so that they can be easily located in the entries. In cases of murder, the perpetrator is often named as well, along with lawyers, policemen and others.
