Note: These are old obituaries scanned from 18th through early 20th century U. S. newspapers. Reports of deaths that were included as parts of news stories were originally included on the News pages, though I have begun to list those on both News & Death pages now.   Be sure and browse through the News pages, and you may find a surprise! 

If you're looking for obituaries more recent than the earliest 1900's, I suggest that you search Ancestry's Obituary Collection, or check out our links to other obituary sites.  Try RootsWeb's The Obituary Daily Times.

January 25, 2001:  I have also begun cross-posting here for deaths that are listed among the TN & VA pages, though I cannot go back and cross-post here all those that have already been posted on those pages. As always, all the names will be in the index anyway. genealogy

If you are looking for a specific name, your best bet is always the Index of Names

Note: I am now adding a few photos snapped on various cemetery visits; these will be listed among the other deaths, as well as on the new page, In Memoriam.

Note: See the "Other" listing (below). This will include the long lists of deaths that sometimes appeared in larger cities, which I have not had time to add individually. I decided to get some of these added as soon as possible, rather than waiting until I had time to cut them apart (virtually, that is).
