Vital Statistics Deaths - 1909
(Extracted by Debi Houser Kendrick)

As I was transcribing these records for 1909 I noticed part way down on the 2nd page of records that the parents of the deceased were not aligning with their child.
It appears that whomever wrote these records down had skipped some names of deceased but listed their parents, causing confusion on who the actua parents were.
I have tried to correct this the best I can by looking to other records and with a little common sense.
