Homepage / Online Archives / Obituaries, Death Notices, Murders, & More

The following are newspaper articles that contain obituaries, death notices, accidental deaths, suicides, and murders. You can sort by Surname of the victim, the Year, the type or Description of the death, and the Perpetrators. The articles include Forney and surrounding areas, including Talty/Irish Ridge, and anyone who may have lived in the area and moved away.

I have also added a column to show an African American connection. The African American could be the victim or the perpetrator if it is a murder case.

Murders: I have tried to find as many articles as I can on each case. In some, the victims survived, but I have added them here anyway. Please contact us if you have more information on the cases or the families involved.
