Clark County Newspaper Obituaries


Throughout its storied history, Clark County has had a variety of newspapers to report the news and opinions of its citizens.  Although some of these have been lost to time, the Library is proud to have preserved many of these materials on microfilm.  The vast majority of our collection stems from these newspapers:

  • The Clark County Democrat:  1867-1886 (scattered issues)

    • Became The Winchester Democrat in 1887-1917 (scattered)

    • Became The Daily Democrat in 1918-1920 (scattered)

  • The Semi-Weekly Sun:  1878-1880 (scattered)

  • Proceeded by The Winchester Sun:  1881-Present (some gaps, complete run 1911-2009)




Through years of diligent work by library volunteers, an index of obituaries that appeared in the local newspapers has been created.  Many of the obituaries appear in their entirety while some is simply an index of names and the dates their obituaries appear in the paper. This list is organized alphabetically, and can be accessed below. If you need a full obituary that is only indexed, contact the reference department and we would be happy to find the obituary for you.
