confused about year of this record US, Virginia—Death Records, 1853–1900[M371-H6Q]
This Death Record for Buchanan County VA is labeled 1875. At the end of the record it is certified as being accepted January 18, 1876. However, at the top of the document it says: Register of Deaths...in the year ending 31 December 1874. I'm confused. It looks like it is a record of deaths in 1874 from the heading.
