Can't find a birth or death certificate?
From Cindy Leonard:
"The physicians of this county are negligent about making returns of births and deaths. The law requires a return be made within thirty days, under a penalty of ten dollars. But it is frequently several months after a birth or death before the attending physician reports the same to the county." - quote from the Macoupin County Herald, March 28, 1879, p 8.
