By: Helen & Timothy Marsh, Pub. 1989, Reprinted 2018, 260 pages, Index, ISBN #0-89308-640-1.

These records are abstracted from two funeral homes in Bedford County, one which was once located in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, and the other in Shelbyville, covering a period from 1870’s to the 1940’s. Given here is valuable family and genealogical information, such as date of births and deaths, parents, place of birth and place of death and interment, often time telling the type of garments the persons were buried in (suits, dress, slippers, underwear, etc..) whether a hearse was rented, or a car (or hack) rented for the preacher. Information as to whether the deceased was married or single, and the cause of death may be included. There are many people listed who were born in the early 1800’s.
