Free Genealogy Death Record on the Coffin Plate of Edwards W Green 1809 ~ 1868
Edwards W Green
Died Oct 13 1868
Age 59 yrs 8 mos 10 dys
This coffin plate for Edwards W Green 1809 ~ 1868 was found in Ohio USA.
I went and had a hunt for Edwards W Green 1809 ~ 1868 in the 1850 and 1860 United States Federal Census on Ancestry.com. I found several individuals of interest as you can see below. I like the Edward Green from Franklin, Warren, Ohio as the best candidate. I went to the 1870 census to see if the Edward Green from Franklin was still their and he was not. This is more evidence that he is the right man. There are many thousands of genealogy entries for the Green surname. If you want to have a look at them I have a link to a FREE TRIAL at Ancestry.com at the bottom of this page.

Coffin plates often contain birth and death dates, and sometimes the place of birth or the occupation of a deceased person.
While not technically a true vital record, coffin plates can be seen as a substitute for vital records or at the least a good clue. In the case of people who died before civil registration it might be one of the few written records genealogists will find in their hunt for that brick wall ancestor!
If you want to know more about what things qualify as a true Vital Records there is a good article at the Olive Tree.
Remember when searching for Coffin Plates on the net they are sometimes referred to as Coffin Plaques, Casket plates or Casket Plaques.
