Obituaries from the Lebanon Daily News: Volume X
1900-Present


This file, Volume X, contains 589 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings mainly from the Lebanon Daily News. Due to time constraints, I was unable to alphabetize this file.

To navigate throughout this page, use the Find option found in the edit menu. This will allow you to find all listed instances of the name/surname you are searching for.

As I add more obits to this file, I will always drop them in at the top. This will aid returnees to this site from having to again browse the entire file. Note: I have these files listed as obituaries, but interspersed amongst the obits are; some funeral notices and also some funeral services. The notices and services many times contain information that is helpful to many researchers. In research there is no such thing as "too much information".

Many listings are connected to my family files, which are: Kindt, Copenhaver, Gettle, & McKinney.
