Subject: FERMANAGH-GOLD -Re: Out of Area Question - 1858 Deaths in Mobile, Alabama
I have recently discovered this wonderful site for U.S. records, it gives sources for all
of the states and some large cities: deathindexes.com
. Here is what is available for
Be sure to scroll down to the bottom for other suggestions. I have managed to find
HUNDREDS of records I was missing: death dates, birth dates listed in the death records,
marriage dates, actual marriage records which filled in most of my missing surnames for
women (along with their parents). This site is a GOLD MINE.
There are no Alabama death records on the state level for 1858. Mobile is in Mobile
county but there is very little there also. Scroll down and see if you find anything that
could help you.

Could I please ask the List to indulge me with an out of area question with which I’ve
been asked for advice by a friend living locally and which some of our American members
may be able to help?
The English Probate Registry website lists the grant of Letters of Administration in 1866
in the case of a Henry Hopwood Billinge of England, who allegedly died in Mobile, Alabama
on the 9th October 1858. There is reason to suspect that the application for the Admon
was fraudulent and that the Henry in question actually died in England in 1874 under the
name Henry Stone Bellinge. I am in the process of trying to get access to the affidavits
etc that supported the 1866 application (but I’m not holding my breath!).
I’ve also tried to find evidence that a Henry Hopwood Billinge did or did not die in
Mobile in 1858. Ancestry (LDS library edition), Newspapers.com
(library edition), Family
Search and Find My Past don’t appear to have any useful records in this regard. Can
anyone please advise me of what other sources of information are available that may help
me help my friend?
