DECATUR COUNTY
OBITUARY PROJECT


The Decatur County Obituary Project is a very ambitious project which will attempt to compile each and every Decatur County, Tennessee obituary onto a single website. I estimate 3 to 5 years for completion.

Each Decatur County obituary is presented as it was published in The News Leader.

Now available for viewing are obituaries from January to March 2008. 2008 is the most recent year for which The News Leader is available on microfilm at the Decatur County Public Library. I expect to have completed all obituaries from years 2008 and 2007 by mid-August 2015. I've found each year takes about a month of research, editing, and posting on the website.

My hope is that this site can be of assistance to those whose research leads them to Decatur County obituaries.

If you want to request an obituary lookup for a year that I have not yet added to the website, please feel free to email me at roots411@gmail.com. There will never be any fee for obituary lookups, no matter the number of obituaries requested. I do this for fun, not profit.
