FUNERAL LEDGERS, 1910-1911
Las Animas, Bent County, Colorado

The original Funeral Ledger was found when Ted Kuhns purchased Powell Mortuary (now Powell-Kuhns Mortuary, Las Animas, Bent County, Colorado) and is in the possession of Ted Kuhns. His daughter, Pam Kuhns-Valdez, felt these records should be online for the use of genealogists. The records were transcribed and prepared for submission by Betty L. Pennington. All deaths occurred in Bent County, CO.
