Index of Obituary and Death Notices in Clark County, Indiana Newspapers
1872 - 1900
In 1992, Mrs. Diane Eden Henley completed an index of death notices and obituaries in the newspapers of Clark County, Indiana for the period of 1872 through 1900. This extremely valuable research tool was bound in a three volume set and placed at the Clark County Public Library in Jeffersonville where it remains available today. Unfortunately, that has been the extent of the availability of Mrs. Henley's extensive work. Mrs. Henley granted me permission to post the index here for all to use.
She asked that I include the following dedication:
"I would like to dedicate this project to my late husband, Calvin Lee Henley, whose five generations of ancestors in Clark County inspired me to take on this work."
UPDATE: I RECENTLY RECEIVED WORD FROM DIANE’S SISTER INFORMING ME THAT DIANE HAD PASSED AWAY ON JUNE 15, 2012. HER WORK IN CLARK COUNTY GENEALOGY WILL BE APPRECIATED BY GENERATIONS TO COME. I THOUGHT IT ONLY APPROPRIATE TO GIVE HER OBITUARY HERE:
