Haskell and Bessie McDowell Collection–Obituaries and Funeral Cards

Submitted by Virginia L. Aldridge

Haskell and Bessie McConnell McDowell lived in the neighborhood where I grew up and attended Main Street General Baptist Church where I spent my formative years. They were good Christian folk and good neighbors. “Hack” worked at Alcoa, in Yankeetown, Indiana, as an electrician, and Bessie was a homemaker. Over the years Bessie collected obituaries and memorial cards from the deaths of their family, friends, fellow church members and neighbors. This collection is the result of that endeavor. At her death, I was offered an opportunity to copy the collection for genealogical purposes. I am grateful for that opportunity. With the family’s permission, we are sharing the collection with you.

Please Note: The files may be slow loading to your computer. To assure the best usage of your time, an index of the names appear above the links to the obituaries and funeral cards. 

Note: You will see that many of the obituaries are attached to the memorial cards. I left them attached when scanning to prevent possible damage to the cards.
