Detailed account of A. Hogsett, Coroner for Central District 1851
My short forms...Ver. = verdict, this means what the coroner had determined was the cause of death. Where it says "held" means where the coroner held his inquest/autopsy. Vis = visitation. This is in the context of "visitation by God", which basically means, natural causes. Gov. = government. The report gives dates for each person, but I'm unsure if these were the dates of the autopsy, or the date of when he submitted his report, or both? All dates are for 1851. - Ann (may be contacted through the contributor's page)
