I am researching my great, great, great grandparents Ambrose and Margaret Louise ("Peggy") Conley/Connelly and wondered if an obituary may be available for either on microfilm. Both died just outside present-day Franklin and are buried at Cartoogechaye Church of God (or Church of Christ)(formerly Mount Zion United Methodist). Margaret/"Peggy" died February 26, 1896. Ambrose (sometimes spelled without the "e") died July 20, 1900. Would there be a local paper (Franklin Press?) that carried obits of Franklin-area deaths at that time? If so, are those available on microfilm at the Franklin branch of the Macon County Public Library. Any help would be greatly appreciated. CHRIS
