Vital Records

I’ve decided to research Vital Records for Lauren Hotchkiss Roundy. He was born in 1815 and he married 3 separate times to 3 separate women in 3 separate states. I am of the line from his last wife, Martha Jane Edmiston. He married her while living in Springville, Utah. He died in 1900 in Knightsville, Utah, and was buried in the Springville cemetery.
1. Cemetery records, Springville, Utah County, Utah: early to 1958. Film # 176659, this film is not located at the BYU Family History Librairy.
2. Cemetery records, Springville, Utah County, Utah: copied from the sextons' records by the Kolob Stake Genealogical Committee; typed by the Genealogical Society of Utah. Film # 6020000, this film is located at the FHL at BYU.
3. A brief history of Springville, Utah : from its first settlement September 18, 1850 to the 18th day of September, 1900. Film # 1059490 is located at BYU and film 164620 is not located at BYU FHL.
4. Record of (LDS) members in Springville, Utah, 1851-1892; historical record, 1851- 1875. Film # 26459 is not located at BYU and film 26458 is located at BYU FHL.
To order a death certificate for Lauren Hotchkiss Roundy I could contact the Utah County Clerks office at the Utah County Administration Building 100 E Center St., Rm 3600 Provo, UT 84606.
I could also go to the FHL at BYU and look at the film reels.
Possible substitutes for Vital Records include:
-Tombstone and Sexton Records
-Personal Journal Entries
- Biographies
