Free death Record on coffin plate Frances M Brenon

Free Genealogy Death Record on the Coffin Plate of Frances M Brenon


The Free Genealogy Death Record on the Coffin Plate of Frances M Brenon

Frances M Brenon
Aged 79 yrs 4 mos 11 days

This coffin plate for Frances M Brenon was found in New Jersy USA. From the style of the plate I would say it is from the 1870s or 1880s so that would give Frances a birth year of 1790 to 1811.

I went and had a hunt for Frances M Brenon in the 1870 United States Federal Census on Ancestry.com. I tried a few spellings but I did not find a match. I did find lots of Brenons.

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.
