Deaths, 1834-1876 from the History of Cohoes, New York by Arthur H. Masten.

 

These types of death records are especially important in New York State, as they predate official vital records. They were originally taken from newspaper columns of the Cohoes Advertiser, Cohoes Cataract, Cohoes Daily News, and the Troy Times. Note that the names are exclusively male. I abbreviated some of the longer entries, and I also did not include the flowery language describing some people as upstanding citizens with kindly manner and upright character who were beloved by all that knew them etc.  Abstracted by Rebecca Rector in November, 2005.
