1852 Marion County, Kentucky Deaths. Some of these are very hard to read but I will do my best. The columns are Name of deceased-Age-Sex-MaritalStatus-Occupation-Residence-Place of Birth-Parents or owner of Deceased-Place of Death- Date of Death-Cause of death. If you find some one that is familiar, let me know if there is a mistake in the spelling of names, etc. I put a star after the first name of individuals who were only listed by first name, I used the last name of owner or parent to be able to have some order to list them.
