In Response To: [AR] Wynne, Cross, & fitzhugh ,Woodruff co obituaries ()
Have you checked the Newspaper Archives of the Wynne Ark area or the area where she was born and grew up? Googling Wynne Ark, shows two current newspapers. The East Arkansas News Leader or Wynne Progress. Did they ever carry African American obits and when did they begin? Were there any Afro specific newspapers in the area?
Was she a member of any social, secular or religious organizations, that would possibly carry a memorial or tribute article about her?
Try googling the Wynne Public Library and local community or major Wynne area college Library system. They sometimes keep an online database of local area obits and for a small processing fee, send a copy to you.
Find an address or Website and contact the local area Historical and Genealogical Societies. They may already have her obit and final resting place on file.
Also try usgenweb.org , select Arkansas, then Wynne county. Search for area AA cemetery transcriptions or online obits. They may also have links to the local area Historical and Genealogical societies.
Have you just Googled her full name, such as "Her Full Name"+Wynne or ~genealogy
Obituaries, biographies, memorials, and tributes sometime show up in the strangest places, especially in online cyberspace.
