Mr. Frank Miller III, previous owner of Miller Funeral Home, has generously donated copies of the Funeral Home records to the Clarkson Public Library, complete with index. I am in the process of preparing the index to be placed online. You may contact the Clarkson Public Library to request more information. When requesting information, please use the name and record number as provided in the following index.

Please Note, however, that, with very rare exception, records through 1936 do not contain any additional information than is provided in the following index.

OBITUARIES: Please send your obituaries to me for posting. Complete obituaries may be posted that are from any paper earlier than 1923 Information will need to be abstracted from later editions to avoid copyright violations. Complete obituaries may be submitted from the Columbus Telegram, Colfax County Press, Leigh World, The Howells Journal, and Schuyler Sun.

NOTE: Be sure to check for other obituaries in the "Peeking into the Past" and "Looking Back at the World" articles found on the Miscellaneous page.

Still can't find what you're looking for? The Platte Valley Kin Seekers have access to many Schuyler papers and for a minimal charge, if they find what you are look for, they can send it to you. For more information check out the Platte Valley Kin Seekers web site or contact them at this email address.
