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


This file, Volume III, contains approximately 400 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while this relatively large file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings 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.

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