Hello! Currently this is ALL we have online for obituaries. There are now 6000 obituraies in the Clark County, On-line Obituaries database and the program I am using only holds 6000. Right now I am trying to figure out a new program to use or cull down duplicates with in the database and then insert new obituaries. These records are here to help you with your research. There are errors and if you do locate an error or a duplicate, please let us know.

Here is a bit of Springfield Modern Newspaper History:
According to the Book "20th Century History of Springfield and Clark Counties, Wm. M. Rockel, pub. 1908, pg 440, The "Morning Sun" came into existence in 1894.......It has continued under practically the same management up to the present time <book published 1908>.....It is located immediately south of the west County Building. It was first located on Main Street, East of Spring, afterward occupying the rooms immedately south of where it now is, it having moved into its present location in December 1906. It is a live and vigorous morning paper and for that reason commands a large country subscription as the paper can be carried in the morning deliveries of the rural Route.
"Springfield Daily News" began publication in 1905 and was a culmination of the "Daily Democrat" and the "Press Republican" and those newspapers were acquired by Gov. Cox.
The "Springfield News- Sun" was a Sunday paper only until 3 May 1982. So any papers published before 1982 with that name were Sunday editions only.
Then the "Springfield News-Sun" combined and they continued to publish two editions until 15 April 1985 when it became a morning paper edition only.
