BULLET St. Louis Argus Obituary Index 1918 S - Z
This index of names was obtained from the DEATHS OF THE WEEK column and individual obituaries found in the St. Louis Argus.

DEATHS OF THE WEEK is very much like the Burial Permits found in the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, they include name, address and age, but not cause of death or the exact date of death. They are the most common source of entry for this index. Individual obituaries are indicated by "#"

The index begins with Vol. 3 #39, January 1, 1915 as this is the earliest surviving copy on microfilm.

All dates listed are for the first date that the notice appeared in the St. Louis Argus, not the date of death.

Subsequent entries from the same individual are not listed unless they appear to provide additional information.

Every effort has been made to be as complete as possible. However, due to poor quality in the microfilm and missing pages, a small percent of the names listed in the newspaper are not available.

The ST. LOUIS ARGUS serves as a valuable resource for deaths in the local African-American community, especially during the early 20th century, when obituaries or death notices for this segment of the population were generally not carried in major area newspapers.
