Obituaries from Early Tennessee Newspapers 1794-1851


Obituaries from Early Tennessee Newspapers 1794-1851.

S. Emmett Lucas, Jr.

As just described in the above book on Early Tennessee Marriage Notices, these Obituaries taken from the above Early Tennessee newspapers have been available ONLY at the Tennessee State Library & Archives in Nashville.  These approximately 7,000 death notices contain date and place of death, sometimes the cause of death, survivors, age at time of death, etc.... A glance at these notices show for instance: one person dying in 1807 aged 60; another dying in 1815 aged 88; another in 1832 aged 95. Thus the reader can readily see that these Obituaries will often carry a person back well into the early 1700’s.
