Obituaries, Death Notices & Death Certificates
Attention - The Wheaton Journals 1919 - 2002 are now on DVD disc. These are very valuable to the history and genealogy of our county and will aid the Barry County researcher a great deal.
Click here to read more about this effort and how to obtain details for ordering. Funds collected will go to a Wheaton community project and will be used to help restore the Wheaton Depot.

Coordinator's Message: To abide by copyright laws, obituaries published in newspapers before they are 70 years old, must not be published on the Web unless you are the author, the obituary is for a family member, the newspaper gives you permission, or you provide only an abstract (such as name of deceased, date of death, newspaper that published the obituary, and the publication date).
Obituaries published before the 70 year period can be copied in their entirety and so no permission is needed.
These death notices, abstracts and obituaries continued herein are offered to you as a research aid. Please do not write and ask for the original or other details. It's up to you to
find a copy of the item and to locate the paper it was published in - and to do your own research.
