||Do You Know that you can search just the
the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections

and some other partitions.
|Reading a series of obituaries from a single
cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational
history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular
time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives
and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade"
All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH.
Women identified by a married alias only and for whom a birth surname
can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.
Please send in typed obituaries for people buried in our local cemeteries.
If possible include name of newspaper and date. Send typed in your email
or in attached Word files. Send to Joyce M. Tice (JoyceTice@aol.com)
