Frankfort genealogy researcher Donna Stark has completed a new book, entitled “Civil War Obituaries,” featuring death notices of men from Trimble County who fought in the war.
The book cover features the likeness and obituary of Sen. William O. Coleman, who was wounded in the war.
The 24-page book features the original obituaries of each soldier, with four to six obituaries per page.
Stark also is offering “People and Places of Trimble County,” Volume II.
Dr. John Todd Bryan, an ancestor of the Bryan family in Trimble, is featured. The book includes biographies, an 1869 list of tavern keepers, merchants and peddlers who obtained licenses to sell their wares.
It also features information about a cemetery at Carlisle Road and U.S. 421, which was researched by Doug Stark. This cemetery includes the surnames of Yeager, Colbert and other families.
Cora Rowlett is also featured, with a picture of her, sister Permelia and their mother, Octavia.
This book is full of historical information on Trimble County.
