I may have a dozen or so 1877 then it jumps to 1898.
If it's an important obit for your family research, I have a book "The
Arkansas Gazette Obituaries Index 1819-1879". It gives the names, date of
death, page and column. You can order the page from the History Commission.
I do not know the cost for this. At one time it was $2 a page. Of coarse
it's like everything else not all issues are available and everyone didn't
make it in the paper.
I was able to find info on my gr gr gr grandfather who died in 1877. He
lived in Independence County but died in Izard County in a fever camp.
The brother of my gr gr grandfather also died in a fever camp in Izard
County about the same time. He was a doctor that also lived in Independence
Didn't have an obit but what an article put in the newspaper by the Masons.
I'll be happy to check this index book if you want.
