Re: Death Certificate Question
In Response To: Death Certificate Question ()

Hi Sheila,

Have you looked at the South Carolina Death Index? It's online from about 1910-1950's. Download their software and you see the same index the clerks look at!

Here's what I saw for Lancaster County:

Walter Witherspoon, Jr.
vol 241
Cert. # 17138
County: Lancaster
Sex: male
Color: Black
Death: 8/25/43
Age 70.3

There's also a 54 year old Willie Witherspoon who died at 54 in 1938 and Willie E. Witherspoon who died at 51 in the 30's both in Lancaster COunty.

Let Me know if you need any help reading the index,

Good Luck,
