In Reply to: Obtaining an obit from old Chilton Co newspaper by LESLIE HILL of 388

I live in Clanton which is the county seat of Chilton County. I can access old newspapers at the Clanton Library so if you will give me a name and death date I will be happy to help you get an obiturary. I might note that obituraries in the 1920-1950 span are sometimes hard to find. It seem that our local newspapers in the early 1900's did not list death in a dedicate obituary section. They were scatterd all through the paper, sometimes on the front page, sometimes in local church write-ups and sometimes if the person was not a prominent citizen for instance they wer not listed at all. I will make an effort to find your obiturary if you will reply to this message.
