Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1870 U.S. Census Mortality Schedule Record for Eliza H. Smith

Yes, I know it's supposed to be Treasure Chest Thursday, but I can't help it - I want to share some of the records that I (and others) have found in my/their repository and online searches for my ancestral families.

This week's Treasure is the 1870 United States Census Mortality Schedule record for Eliza H. Smith (1791-1869) in Leominster, Massachusetts:

The entry for Eliza H. Smith is on the right-hand page:

The extracted information for Eliza is:

*  Name:  Eliza H. Smith
*  Age:  75
*  Sex:  F[emale]
*  Race:  W[hite]
*  Marital Status:  W[idow]
*  Birthplace:  ------- [Mass.]
*  Death Month:  Nov[ember]
*  Occupation:  No Occupation
*  Cause of death:  Apoplexy

The source citation for this record is:

"U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885," Worcester County, Massachusetts, Leominster, Page 619 (penned), Line 6, Eliza H. Smith entry,  online database and digital image,  Ancestry.com  (http://www.ancestry.com), citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T1204, Roll Number 23.

There is no new information in this record for me, but I have attached it to my profile for Elizabeth Horton (Dill) Smith, my 3rd great-grandmother.
