Death certificates in Oregon note the location of the death but I don't know about Kansas.   If you are very patient, you can dig through all of those for your area.

Why is it important?

If you find a body you know someone died there. ;)

You can ask the seller. You can ask the neighbors. You might even be able to ask the police about a reported death at that location. Even then you still might not find out about a death in that house. They may not know. I know of one person who died in their house in the middle of the night. They were hauled away when everyone was still asleep. If I did not know about this personally I would have no idea anyone died there. There was not even a death or funeral notice placed in the newspaper.

If the house is old and someone died there 50 or more years ago no one may know about it now. Even if the death was fairly new it may not be known about except by immediate family and friends.
