Pacolet Mills Death Records Compiled by Miss
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
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.
