Looking for family of William R. Epperson of Kelat

Can anyone tell me how I can find obituaries written up in the "Log Cabin" in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Not sure how long the paper was in circulation.

Specifically, I am looking for the obituary of Mary Epperson, first wife of William Epperson who died in 1907; and Nancy Epperson, second wife of William Epperson.

I believe Mary died between 1860-1870 and Nancy died between 1890-1900.

Obituary sent by Charles Feix from "The Log Cabin" April 19, 1907:
Mr. William R. Epperson, aged 79 years, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Charles Wilson, near Kelat, April 12, 1907. He resided on his farm near Kelat and served as the Postmaster of Curry before the establishment of an office in Kelat. He taught school in Harrison county for several years and was married twice. He was the father of sixteen children, four of whom have died.

Surviving children are: Mrs. Martha E. Warner, Mrs. Dent Whitaker, of Ohio, Mrs. Joe H. Craigmyle, Mrs. Walter Barnes, by his first wife, formerly Mary Scott. Children by his second wife, Nancy Wilson were: John McCauley, Luther, Walter, Stephen, Orville, Mrs. Susie Wilson, and Mrs. Hattie Scott. Buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.

Thank you for any help you can give me.
