Polk County, Tennessee Death Certificates for 1908-1910
Ed. note: Volunteers at the History Branch of the Cleveland Public
Library have transcribed and published the TN Vital Stats from 1914-1936.
However, to our knowledge the earlier ones printed here have not been published,
probably due to the fact that so little information is given and the large
number of infant mortalities.
The cause of death is transcribed, 'as is' - those are not typos.
