Local Newspapers for the Beckner Cemetery ...

Below are the newspapers that have been published in the vicinity of the Beckner Cemetery.

Our newspaper information for the Beckner Cemetery is based on data supplied by the Chronicling America website. For more information, please see our description of the Chronicling America website.

Hint: When we started searching newspapers, we only looked for obituaries. Eventually we realized that our search was too narrow and there was much that we were missing. Now we include things like around-the-town and gossip columns, birth and death announcements. We have some family members who owned businesses and now we search for articles and advertistments for those businesses. Some family members could have been better behaved and a search of police blotters contained some surprises.

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Beckner Cemetery. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.1304, Longitude: -81.2821     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for the Beckner Cemetery have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
