Death Notices from Richmond, Virginia Newspapers 1841 - 1853


There was no provision to keep records of death prior to 1853. However, clues may be gleaned from isolated church papers, family Bibles, or newspapers. Death notices in the Richmond area newspapers were not limited to the immediate vicinity but are a statewide reference.
