Archuleta County Mortality Schedule
The following index was created as part
of the 1885 Colorado Census that was conducted on a statewide basis from
June 1, 1884 until May 31, 1885 in all counties that existed at the
time. The information is on microfilm and records the deaths in the
county during this time period that were reported to the census takers.
Although the film is not of the best quality for deciphering and
extracting names, it has good genealogical information that may be of
value to a researcher. The record generally shows the name of the
person who died, their age, sex, ethnicity, marital status, where born, father
and mother's birth place, occupation, cause of death, month of
death, length of residency in the county, name of attending doctor and
the name of the nearest town to where the family resided.
An earnest effort was made to transcribe each name correctly.
However, some of the handwritten entries were hard to read, making it
difficult to ensure the spelling of a name is accurate. Please check
similar or closely spelled names as this may help you in your search. If
you find a name on this list and would like a copy of that person's
record, please contact us. We will respond to regular mail, e-mail
