Can some of you more experienced in viewing/interpreting death records list
the most common causes of death:

Fibre: Fever

Dolor de Costado: I think that means Heart Attack what is your understanding

Colora: Cholera

What are others that you've come across?

Thanks,

Joseph

Dolor de costado was a symptom of a disease, not necessarily the cause of
death. They were usually describing the symptom because they did not know
what the disease was. Dolor de costado was a pain in the side, could have
been appendicitis, cancer, sepsis or many other diseases.

Hidropesia (water retention?)
Tabardillo (Typhus - very common amongst vaqueros)
Apuñalado, cuchillada (stabbed)

I’ve seen the following causes of death given in records for Zacoalco de Torres circa 1820:

Tos = Coughing, especially for infant deaths. I guess it was possibly whooping cough or the flu.
Muerto por un rayo en el campo = Lighting strike
Muerto por arma de fuego = Death by firearm
Muerto por heridas recibidas en campo de batalla = Battlefield wounds
Muerto por un balaso = Gunshot

Childbirth for women

Dolor de costado muerte por obstrucción de la vesícula biliar.

Cólico miserere: apendicitis o peritonitis.

"Murió de su muerte": Muerte natural

Marcelina

Dolor de costado muerte por obstrucción de la vesícula biliar.

Cólico miserere: apendicitis o peritonitis.

"Murió de su muerte": Muerte natural

Marcelina

I've always assumed that a woman who died soon after the birth of a child
(or right after the death of a baby), to have died due to childbirth, but
have not seen the cause of death identified as such. Has anyone?

I have seen on several cases of: Mal de Orina. Since all the cases I've seen are men I assume they had prostate problems. I've also seen: cayo de in caballo (fell from a horse), Machetazos (Cut with machete), Un Insulto (?), patata de un burro (kick of a donkey), Evacuaciones (Diarrhea or cholera). Deedra Corona
