Grand Traverse County Coroner's Records, 1897-1909

Subject

Death -- Causes.

Description

Collection of Grand Traverse County Coroner's Records, 1897-1965. Attached to this record are the reports and index to the volume, created by volunteers of the Grand Traverse Area Historical Society. The records were created by the Coroner's Office as part of the process of investigating a particular cause of death; therefore, they can often provide information beyond what is recorded on the death certificate. The coroner's necrology and pathology reports may include details on the health of the individual and the exact manner of death. Inquest testimony may point to family relationships, as friends and family often provided sworn statements. Police statements and jury testimony and verdicts may also be available, leading to research in court records or penitentiary or prison records. The coroner for Grand Traverse County from 1897 – 1900 was William E. Moon, MD. The sheriff, who called the witnesses, was Oscar Stimson. Beginning in 1901, Oscar E. Chase, MD was the coroner and David Chandler was sheriff. In 1905, Dr. Frank Holdsworth took over as coroner and Charles Johnson became sheriff. Dr. Earnest B. Minor was coroner and the Sheriff was F. Shuter beginning in 1909. The names of these individuals are found in most of the records throughout their times of their service.
