Because each of the censuses from 1850-1880 began on June 1, "previous year" refers to the 12 months preceding June 1, or June 1 (of the previous year) to May 31 (of the census year).

      Thus, according to the federal census mortality schedule for the year 1880, Alfred DAVIS died in April 1880.]
