Whose Body Is It?

Inquiring genealogists want to know . . .

Terry Thornton pointed to an article in the Monroe County Journal (a merger of the Amory Advertiser and Aberdeen Examiner, both of which were owned by the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal). Why didn't they give the section/township/range? Have they checked to see if the casket company's business records from that time period are available? (Nothing via NUCMC, but I'd sure love to know if anyone knows if there are any records of the company in Cincinnati which sold Fisk's coffins which still exist.)

  • Lori, This is an interesting mystery, isn't it? I do hope the authorities will release the exact location so that genealogists/family historians can get busy solving what old private cemeteries may have been located there, early landowners, etc. I think the Monroe County Discussion Group is ready to help on this mystery!
