Barbour County, West Virginia, Book of Deaths 1, 1853-1919 and Will Books 1 and 1 1/2, 1839-1889


A collection of abstracts. Most of the people listed as dying in the county were born there as well, although many were born in nearby counties or in the state of Virginia. Death records give the name of the deceased, date of death, cause of death, age, parents, place of birth, spouse, and name of person reporting death; they are arranged chronologically by year of death. The abstracted wills give the relationship to the decedent (when given), including witnesses, executors and significant bequests; they are arranged chronologically by year of probate.
