I just finished uploading a transcription of the Diary of Aaron G. HURD - a 
record of deaths in the town of Clinton, Middlesex Co., CT, between the 
years 1809 and 1878.  The latter date is far later than the records of the 
Barbour collection and means that there is a quantity of new data.  
Unfortunately, Mr. HURD, who was a Representative to the General 
Assembly in 1848 & 1852, and a J.P., concentrated on the name of the head 
of the household, typically the man.  Therefore, all too many records detail 
the death of "child of", "wife of" or "wid[ow] of" rather than giving the name of 
the deceased.  Still, I hope that the information will be of use.  It can be 
found at the URL below.
