Obituaries and death notices, especially those written years ago, are not just a valuable source of names, dates and places for a genealogist. Grouped together as they are here they become an intimate social history of a community, written by journalists who usually knew the deceased and their families.

Some are tributes to pioneers, patriarchs, pastors and parents whose life stories are the history of Graham County. Others are tender remembrances of children, women who died in childbirth or those struck down by disease, unfortunate accidents or natural disasters. There are stories honoring the supreme acts of sacrifice of local young men and women who died overseas in distant wars as well as reports of sensational crimes that live on in story for generations.

As a Graham County researcher this is your chance to contribute to the history of Graham County online. Please consider contributing your own family stories from obituaries and death notices you have of Graham County residents. They don't have to be from an obituary. You can write a tribute to your Graham County relation and submit it as well.


If you'd like to contribute an obituary or death notice to this page
check out the GUIDELINES at the bottom of this page.

Guidelines for submitting a Graham County
obituary or death notice

Do you have an old obituary or short death notice of a Graham County resident tucked away in a scrapbook, trunk or file. Take it out and share it with the rest of us! Type up your obituary and email it to us and we'll post it here. Just observe the following guidelines...

To enter your Graham County obituaries:

  1. Put GRAHAM CO OBITUARY in your subject line &. email them to Bernice
  2. On first line put name of deceased. Use the name in the obit. If you want to rename the individual to clarify who they are add that name in parenthesis after the obit name. Look above for examples of this. Do this to include maiden names or full names for individuals given initials only in the obit.
  3. On the second line put the name of the newspaper, newspaper's town, date of issue where obituary is found, page, column, if known. PLEASE.... Graham County residents only... A resident is defined here as an individual who lived in Graham County for part of his/her life. Type out the obituary capitalizing all SURNAMES. Don't put given names or locations all in caps, just the surnames.
  4. Put "submitted by [your name and email address]" at the end. If you want to, include your postal address as well.
  5. It's ok to edit the obits you submit. If you want to add maiden names, correct/add dates or other information do so. Just put any added information in [brackets]. That lets the reader know that this is something not in the original obituary.


It's as simple as that!
