Hi,

Could anyone please tell me if there are online obituaries for the Chariton Democrat, Iowa, for February 1892.  The son of my 3 x great grandfather went to the U.S.A. from England and died on 4th February 1892 age 43.  His name was David Whitney.

Thanks for any help.

I don't see any online archives.  The Chariton Democrat expired in 1904 and was replaced by the Chariton Leader which is still in operation.  Here is Leader website and also the Chariton Public Library.

It seems that there is an obituary.  At the public library site, click on genealogy.  Lucas County Genealogical Society has prepared a searchable index of all the names mentioned in Chariton newspapers.  There is one reference to David Whitney -  appears to be an obituary.  There are numerous references to other Whitneys.

Thank you very much for all your help and imput.  The find a Grave website looks brilliant and also the Chariton Newspapers.
I was surprised to see that a wife has surfaced.  I didn't think he ever married.

Thank you very much.
