Where Are They Buried? How Did They Die? Fitting Ends and Final Resting Places of the Famous, Infamous, and Noteworthy icon


These include long listings of deaths from various old newspapers. While I prefer to add each one individually to the Deaths pages, I don't always have time! You will find the individuals listed in the Index of Names.

NOTE: I will also add here references to deaths where no names are given.
