Newspapers--Loxa, Mattoon 1800s

I would like to try to look up some obits/community news in the Loxa, Mattoon, Charleston area from about 1855-1900. I'm particularly interested in 1880-1896. The newspaper index at my local library lists many papers--does anyone know the paper of record for this time period? I can request microfilm through interlibrary loan.

I'm specifically looking for an obituary for John C. Richardson, wife Harriet, between 1880-1896 or so.

Also, any news of Richardson / Foreman / Berkeley families of Seven Hickory and Fair Grange townships.
