Owensboro Area Obituary Index
This database is not exclusively African American in focus; it has been added to this site as a source for locating obituary information. The database is an online index of obituaries taken from the Owensboro Messenger and the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer. The index was developed by and is maintained by the Daviess County Public Library in Owensboro, KY. Presently, the online database covers the time periods: 1842-1919, 1920-1989, and 1990-present.
