Death Records of Missouri Men, 1808-1854


Many important details not found in civil records appear in this collection, from about 60 newspapers and covering a wide area. Approximately 4,000 death notices from 60 newspapers. Some are familiar - Daniel Boone, Alexander McNair - but most were average citizens. Side by side with those who died on the way west, in Indian skirmishes, in explosions or in natural disasters, are the records of the peaceful end of those who died "at home, worthy and respected".
