Sympathy Saturday - Lucie Howard Chinn

One database that I have used over the years, is Duff's Funeral Notices, a wonderful resource for those with history in the Lexington, Kentucky area. More than the memorial card of today, these were actually "invitations" to the funeral. In this time, there were often no daily death notices in the newspapers, since most newspapers were weeklies. These funeral cards were sent out to notify friends and relatives of the funeral arrangements.

Funeral Notice for Lucie Howard Chinn, May 27, 1869.
