Ceres Names, Dates, and Places

The following documents were found in box of papers handed down through the Evans/Evens family and are currently in the possession of my brother.   I have transcribed them as best I could in hopes that they would help someone find that missing date, name or place.   I appologize in advance for any errors or typos.  The writing was often faded and the handwriting was not easy to decipher.  I am not sure of the source of these papers, though the death and birth records look semi-official. My best guess is that they were some sort of church record.

Deaths What follows was transcribed from what appears to be some sort of semi-official journal or record.  Perhaps a church record.  It consists of three pages that seem to have been bound in a book.  The pages are ruled as one would find in a cash journal.   The pages are 14" tall by 6" wide.   Judging by the hand writing, I believe entries were made by two individuals over time.  One individual capitalized the letter "D" in "Died", the other didn't.  The entries seem to have been entered contemporaneously.

Portville, March 31 1876

*  1875 in one entry is crossed out, apparently an error,  I would be suspicious of the previous 1875 date as well as it seems out of order.
