Please give me tips on how I might get an obituary and/or newspaper death notice for EFFIE WILLIAMS? She died September 19, 1946 in Pinhook.  I tried the County library, but they could find no newspaper notice.  Since she was a Black American, is it possible that she might have been listed in a local Black newspaper (if such existed)?  I have her death certificate.  I was hoping to learn more from an obituary. Thank you.

I am looking for a long lost Half-Brother to my late Grandfather  Arthur Junior ( A.J.) as he is formerly known.  His father
Arthur W. Worthy was married to a woman before, having a son with her!  I guess they later divorced, and he married
Lula Belle Frazier  from Dyersburg Tenn., by this time no one knew where his first son was.  They later moved to
Mississippi Co., Mo and had 6 kids of which two died at birth!  Arthur Junior, Eugene, Robert, and Opal were they 4 who
survived, they were all from Mississippi Co!  Granpa A.J. told me his half brothers name might be J.W. Worthy, but we are
not sure. If you have any information on the Worthy's please let me know by E-Mailing me, i would really apreciate it!  This
information would be in memory of my late Grandfather A.J. Worthy, who died in 1994 in East Prairie, without knowing his half-brother!!  Thanks, Gary
