Vital Records and Obituaries

Vigo County, Indiana
This Site is part of 
The INGenWeb Project



The former Vigo County Site had a nice collection of obituaries that were submitted over time. Because email addresses change, and the format of the submissions was not consistant, it was necessary to combine all of the information into one file that can be searched.
It can be found here.

Historical Obituary

In 1853 George Adams Smith died of consumption. He was born in Terra Haute, Indiana, and learned the trade of his Father a brick mason. He was too weak, physically, to labor successfully at that, and quitting it, commenced the study of law. With only an ordinary common school education, he made rapid advances in his profession and had he lived would have attained eminence in it. He was an indefinable student, a clear and logical thinker, and exulted in the acquisition of knowledge especially in that of his profession. He was a good, pure and an honest man. The people of Butte lost one of then-brightest ornaments, and every member of the Bar a friend, when they were compelled to murmur their farewell over his grave.
