WAYNE COUNTY, NY DEATHS - 1848
Part 2

Arcadia, Butler and Macedon


The typescripts of the several lists of deaths that took place in Wayne County in 1848 were donated to us by the Office of the County Historian to help you better formulate questions when visiting the society or ordering mail searches. We all hope these lists provide clues to ancestral location, surnames and perhaps a final death date. If you recognize anyone on this list, please drop a line to Martha so it can be noted next to their listing.

As you scan the listings you'll see unusual spellings. They're not typos we've made but can be attributed to the original typist's interpretation of old handwriting, or assumptions made by the registrars of the deaths. If a spelling differs from that of your ancestral surname, or deaths didn't take place in the townships you thought your ancestors were from, don't pass them by. Jot them down...just in case. A date and location can be used to search in the 1850 census or the info may turn out useful to others searching your surnames.

During years 1847 - 1850 some New York State counties officially recorded information about births, marriages and deaths. Then they just stopped. Not all counties preserved this early information so each county, and township within it, must be taken on a case-by-case basis in making inquiries of societies. Required birth registration didn't start in New York State until 1880, over 30 years after the 1847 - 1850 events were recorded, and wasn't really enforced until 1900. New York State death registration wasn't required until just after 1900. Marriage certificates were issued in the 1860s but kept by the couple and written down by the person performing the marriage.

*** Official death certificates were not given for New York State in 1848.***

*** Neither the team who are assisting in preparing the township death lists nor the coordinators have further info on the persons named below. ***

4 April 2015: In this section for Arcadia, Butler and Macedon listed is my 4th great grandfather, Lot Sears who died in Arcadia on 7 Feb 1848. As the instruction say I am letting you know. My name is E. Ann Olson; I live in Olympia, WA and am researching this Sears line to prove ancestry linkage for qualification in various lineage associations. I am particularly interested in information regarding the daughter of Lot and Lurana Butler Sears, Alice Sears Woodward.

Thanks for all the work on this project!
Ann Olson


5 September 2007: If you have information about the burial location of Durlin Crego, or any other info about him, please contact researcher Ann Marie Middleton.


28 Aug 2002: The Caleb Robinson you have listed, Jan 17, 1848, was my grgr-grandfather. The Caleb J. Robinson age 9 was the grandson of Caleb. They are listed as being buried in the old Glerum Farm Cemetery. Your web pages have been a great help in tracing my maternal ancestors.
