Free Genealogy Death Record on the Coffin Plate of William H Gulley
William H Gulley
5 yrs 8 mo 20 ds
This coffin plate for William H Gulley was found in PA.
Are you interested in the Gulley name in history? The Gulley Name in History is a customized book offering a unique blend of fascinating facts, statistics and commentary about the Gulley name. The book is part of a series of family name books in the Our Name in History collection.
I do not know when this coffin plate was manufactured so I have not been able to locate William. I would say it was made after 1870 but thats about it.
Just for fun I went and had a hunt for William Gulley in the 1900 United States Federal Census on Ancestry.com. I found several individuals of interest as you can see below.

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.
