The Associate Reformed Presbyterians of the South sponsored two periodicals before the Civil War. Although endorsed by the Associate Reformed Synod of the South, both were published by individual ministers without any financial support from the synod. The Christian Magazine of the South and The Erskine Miscellany (later The Due West Telescope) regularly carried death and marriages notices until their respective terminations. Death notices generally include the name of the deceased, date of death, location at death, name(s) of parent(s), and name of spouse; many death notices also include additional information such as cause of death and/or biographical tidbits. Marriage notices generally include the date and location of marriage, the name of the official, the names of the bride and groom; marriage notices may also include additional information such as the names of the bride's parents. Some stories are included, which have special human interest and others, which were clearly intended as a warning of how sudden and uncertain death may be. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
