Orleans Parish, La. Coroner's Office
Reports of Deaths, 1862-1863
The deaths listed here for the period November 29, 1862-December 5, 1863 were recorded in what
appears to be a notebook used by the Coroner or someone in his office. Some, but not all, of the
deaths also appear in the official record of Inquests and Views. These deaths are of special interest
since they occurred during the period of Union occupation of New Orleans following the city's fall in
April 1862. For more information, see http://www.nutrias.org/~nopl/inv/coroner/th1862to1863.htm.
