This page was last updated February 3, 2016 and the file now contains 4,039 obituaries

    We are looking for people to donate transcriptions of obituaries, cemeteries, deeds, censuses, Bible records, etc. We are particularly interested in obtaining pre-2001 obituaries. If you have a Madison Parish file you'd like to donate to help other genealogists and the Madison Parish USGenWeb Obituary Project, please send it to Dick Sevier at


NOTE: These are obituaries of Madison Parish residents or former residents whether they were buried in Madison Parish or not.


NOTE ALSO: In February 2012 the owner of the Madison Journal, Emmerich Publishing of Jackson, MS, gave permission to scan old bound-volume issues with a hand-scanner. This is an ongoing project and has produced hundreds of new obituaries. Unfortunately, starting in the early 1970’s, almost all of the obituaries were located on the lower left half of page three. This put them in the tightly bound area and effectively made the left inch or two of each obituary unreadable. Therefore missing words or letters that could not be assumed or clearly deciphered were replaced with x’s (Xxxxxx.) Most of these involved names of people or towns.
