Citing this page:

The following newspaper notices relating to deaths in or close to 1857 in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania were compiled by a page by page search of the Montrose Democrat and the Montrose Independent Republican. For future researchers, it is noted:

  • Quite a few deaths were published months following the death, and in a couple of instances, over a year later.
  • The quality of print is difficult to read in many cases and OCR does not pick up text well.
  • Most marriages and deaths appear on page 3 and occasionally on page 2 or 4.
  • Very little local news was reported at the time.
  • Instant or inst. means the current month and ultimo or ult. means the previous month.
