Hi Audrey,

Have you checked to see if the library in Pickens has microfilm/microfiche of the older newspapers for that county?

The Anderson County Library in Anderson had them years ago for the old Anderson newspapers. I found lots of older obituaries that way, but it takes a lot of digging in the older papers. The obits were spread throughout the paper in many cases back then, not all in one section of the paper like they are today.

Best of luck to you in your search.

Your sis in Christ,
Suzanne
