The Winfield Star Death Index
Part 1, Surnames A - F

Prepared and Contributed by Kathy Huxtable

This extraction of death notices is from a collection of newspapers printed in West Winfield and was done in 1995 by two students. A few issues of the Madison Leader from Morrisville are also included. The period covered ranges from 1860 to 1952. However, issues from the early years were very sparse, and overall many years are not even represented.

Since West Winfield is located in the southwest corner of Herkimer County, its newspaper's readership is drawn not only from the community, but also from the neighboring counties of Madison, Oneida and Otsego, as well as other towns in Herkimer County. Many of the names found here include residents of these areas. The original newspapers are in fragile condition and not available for further research at this time. Our thanks to the individual who has allowed us to share this information with the public. The index was prepared by Kathy Huxtable, Town of Columbia Page Coordinator.
