From Campbell County History News - April 1997

This is a sample of the Newport Death Records found on microfilm in the Kenton County Public Library. These records begin in 1884 and run until 1928. Many of the pages are faded and the handwriting is difficult to read. Individuals listed often are from outside the city of Newport and sometimes from outside Kentucky. This was more common in later years. (An interesting note is the cause of death "Phthises", which is a Greek word meaning "a dwindling or wasting away". Pronounced TIE-sis, it is an archaic term for tuberculosis. Another common term for tuberculosis was consumption.) 

The columns numbers represent the following information:
1. Earlier of “record date” or “death date” shown
2. Name of deceased
3. Reported age at death
4. Social Relation (Married, Single or Widowed)
5. Cause of death
6. Combination of information reporting nativity of decedent or parents
7. Residence of decedent. (The microfilm record shows the street address)
8. Length of time the decedent lived in this area
9. Prior area the person lived at
10. Place of burial
The original record has additional information not copied into this transcription.
