    Obituaries from Arcanum, Ohio Newspapers

    Arcanum Times - January 1, 1931 December 31, 1933

    Contributed by Rose Shilt

    Proofed by Carol Null

    The obituaries included here have been abstracted for all their important genealogical content. Some were

    only death notices while others were full obituaries with all the many worded content used in early times.

    It should also be remembered that many newspapers of this period received their news by word of mouth,

    with some items being told through a chain of several people. Spelling as found. Some of these death

    notices will appear in more than one edition of this weekly newspaper, if additional information is given,

    then that additional data will be given. Date of newspaper in which item appears will be given in

    parenthesis. If females are listed under maiden name, a further reference is given to married name. A few

    items other than obituaries have been included for their genealogical content. Marriages are included only

    if they took place in another area or state where they might be hard to find. As Arcanum was not that far

    from the Montgomery, Miami and Preble County lines, there will be some items concerning people in these

    counties. All newspapers are on micro-film and are located in the Arcanum Public Library.

    It should be noted that during this period, some of WWI death notices were reported when the relatives

    were notified, or at the time the remains were received by families, if returned. Hence, the newspaper may

    have not reported until the time when the remains were received or buried some time later. Also, the

    influenza epidemic was the cause of an exceptionally large number of deaths for persons of all ages in this

    time period.

    Important in figuring death dates in some instances:--

    Newspaper published on Friday until Feb 28, 1916 when publication date was changed to Thursday.

    Missing issues: Feb. 27, Mar 6 & Mar 23, Mar 27, 1919

    All dates are as found. Some obviously are not correct and if noticed are underlined.
