NOTE: From Charles Sullivan; NYC-L list

Coroners' Inquisitions 1823-1898 are available on microfilm
at FHCs. Check the FHL Catalog online at:
under "New York, New York (City) - Vital Records"
The first film in the block is FHL #1318155.

These records will be of cases where a Coroner's Jury 
was convened, testimony was taken from witnesses, and a 
stenographer was employed to copy it all down.

However the Coroner often interviewed people on the 
scene and drew his own conclusions; there will probably be 
no record of these beyond what's on the death certificate.

The body of Mary ROBSON, who was murdered by her 
husband, Daniel, in Greenpoint Wednesday night, will be 
buried to-morrow in Calvary Cemetery. 
The husband, who shot himself will be buried in Greenwood Cemetery.
From testimony brought out in an inquest held by 
Coroner George Lindsay yesterday afternoon it would appear that 
Robson had many troubles to contend wih in his married life. 
It was said that the property which Robson got control of be 
turned ovr to his ife, and when subsequently he wished 
to convert some of it to cash Mrs. Robson refused to sell 
any of it. When she did sell she kept the money. Several of 
Robson's friends assert that  his hard drinking proclivities 
grew out of his wife's refusal to give up the 
property that was his.
