Good luck.
I have used the microfilm files of the Journal and they are/were pretty slack when it came to obits. I've looked for turn of the century obits, 1937, etc., and they were amazingly consistent...they weren't there.
I would suggest trying the Mormon Stake Library, which is on the west end of town, near the Logan Park cemetery. I have no idea how you would find them online but suspect that there is a way. I would try the phone book/yellow pages, via www.switchboard.com or some similar site. Yahoo has a clone of switchboard.com. Or, start with the Mormon church in Salt Lake and work your way back to SC.
I've got an ideea...e-mail the SC library and ask them how to reach the stake library online!
Actually, the SC library was kind enough to e-mail me back immediately on my query about the Iowa "state" census...which I promptly deleted before reading. See, I had this new computer... 8-(

PS: The SC library also has folders with the location/names of those buried in the three cemeteries that are in the SC city limits. Logan Park and Floyd are the only names I remember right now.
