(Editor’s notes: Illinois Archives online database does not have Edgar County deaths but Illinois Regional Archives Depositories online at http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/archives/irad/iradholdings.html has many Edgar County records including Death Record Index 1877-1915, and Death Records 1877-1901. IRAD research policy encourages mail requests. Surname spelled as Clausing should also be considered.)
