Mattie Trice, daughter of Dabney Nelson and Elizabeth Rebecca Larson (Strum) Trice, compiled a scrapbook of obituaries on the Trice family and their extended families over a 60+ year span. Most of these obituaries are from Hopkins and Webster counties, but some are from other areas as well. Mattie never showed the name of the paper and seldom showed the date. To make the scrapbook more valuable I have attempted to locate burial information and included it with the obituary. If the burial was in Webster County Carole Palmer, my very dear friend and the county coordinator for Webster County KyGenWeb page, did the lookups for me. [Thanks Carole!] For burials in other locations I have asked for lookups and in some cases was successful in obtaining the information. In other cases no information was found, or the request was not answered and I placed a query on the appropriate query board so you might check there for an answer if one of these is of interest to you.
In going thru some of Matties belongings a few years ago, a niece discovered this scrapbook, and also found a box of obituaries that had never been placed in the scrapbook. As she has time she is also adding some of these to the board. Visit Matties Scrapbook.
