1880 Multnomah County, Oregon Mortality Schedule

Abstracted by Connie Lenzen from

Public Records Loan Microfilm 71, located at Oregon State Archives.


In 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880, the census enumerator asked questions for additional "schedules" besides the regular population schedule.

In 1880, the schedules, or lists, were:

The Oregon schedules were microfilmed by the Oregon State Archives as "Public Records Loan Microfilm 71". A copy is at the Oregon State Archives, the Oregon State Library, and the Genealogical Forum of Oregon.

There are 345 names on the 1880 Mortality Schedule for Multnomah County, Oregon. One should assume that is not a complete list of people who died between 1 June 1879 and 31 May 1880. The census enumerator might have forgotten to ask the question on his visits to the houses, and other human errors could have crept in.

The following arrangement is alphabetical, but that is not the way the names are arranged in the film. They are arranged by Enumeration District. Inside the Enumeration District, they are arranged as the census enumerator walked the district.

Not all the information on the schedule was abstracted. The researcher is encouraged to read the original documents for the "missing" information: sex, color, marital status, occupation, place of birth of parents, how long in the county, place where disease was contracted if not at the place of death, where was the place, and name of attending physician.
