New Knoxville Journal obituary index

In addition to the obituary index that covers 1991 - present, we now have the Knoxville Journal obituary index (1885 - 1906) online. These obituaries are for people who died in Knoxville or surrounding counties or had some kind of a connection to Knoxville. Unfortunately, not everyone had an obituary and those that exist are not as rich in genealogical information as is the current custom, but you may still find nuggets in them.
