Pacolet Mills Death Records Compiled by Miss Fuller  

I have found an unusual and interesting document in the papers and records of David Smith, the first Mayor of Pacolet Mills. There is a collection of Death Records for many people from the Pacolet Mills community that was assembled by the company nurse, Miss Belle Fuller. The records give the name, age, relatives, cause of death and the attending doctor. The records are not complete and only go up to about 1945 at the end of WWII. However, they give a glimpse of how many of our ancestors and relatives died. Many of the diseases listed are almost unknown today and could be readily cured by modern medicines. There are many children listed. The records also included information relating to White Rose Cemetery at Pacolet Mills. There is part of a receipt book showing payments for the cemetery lots. Also, many of the people in the Death Records have a notation about where their cemetery lot is located in White Rose. Click on Pacolet Mills Death Records to read more.
