Joe Stanley Epperson, Jr., 73, eldest child of Joe Stanley Epperson, Sr. and Dorothy Garnett Epperson, passed away on Wednesday morning, March 10, 2021 while in the kind and compassionate care of the Palliative Care team at Baptist Hospital East in Louisville.

Joe was known as “Junior” from the time of his birth on September 30, 1947, in Columbia, KY. During his youth, he became a member of the First Baptist Church of Columbia. After his graduation from Adair County High School in 1965, he joined the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He served his country with dignity as evidenced by his honorable discharge upon completing his service requirements.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his younger Epperson brothers — Frank Rodney in 1975, Henry Wayne “affectionately known as Mr. Bounce”  in 2013, and James Marshall “known first as Baby Brother, then Babe” passed away in 2016.

Survivors remaining to remember Joe are two sisters, Susan L. Epperson and S. Elaine Epperson, both of Elizabethtown, KY.   Remaining family include his niece, Jeanine M. Barnett of Campbellsville, KY and his nephew, Daunque L. Epperson of Louisville.  His three great nieces are Sydnei Epperson, LaNiya Epperson and Dayonna Bell. Great-great niece Sophia Epperson is not to be left out; she is small yet full of great promise. Great nephews include Aaron Barnett, Ceondre Barnett, and Thayden Epperson. Survivors also include an aunt, Minnie L. Clayborn, a number of cousins and friends.

Grissom-Martin Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.

In accordance with his wishes, a memorial service for Joe will be held at a later date.

Contributions in his memory may be made to either a homeless shelter, a women’s shelter, a food pantry or any other charity of choice. Additionally, one might choose to provide help to someone in need of a helping hand or, simply, a kind word.

Joe Epperson, Jr.’s family is forever grateful for all the wonderful acts of kindness shown during this time.

As Junior would say in his later years:

“May God bless you and keep you in His good graces.”

Tips for a Successful Adair Progress Obituary Search

Genealogy research can be challenging as many records are incomplete or filled with mistakes. For a successful Adair Progress obituary search, it’s good to have multiple strategies at your disposal to ensure you get the correct relative.

Most older obituaries will include some pieces of family information. Obituaries can be used to uncover information about other relatives or to confirm that you have the right person in Columbia, Kentucky.

For a successful search of Adair Progress obituaries, follow these tips:

  • Use information from more recent ancestors to find older relatives.
  • Try searching by initials. Many old Adair Progress obits used initials instead of full names.
  • Are you looking for a female relative? Try searching for their husband’s name.
  • Perform searches by using common misspellings. TITLE editors often didn’t fact-check spellings in the past.

By implementing these strategies, you can go deeper with your research and uncover the ancestors you never knew you had. It’s also ideal for fact-checking, as many obituaries weren’t necessarily created with 100% accuracy.

How to Find Kentucky Death Notices in the Adair Progress

Finding death notices in the Adair Progress can be another vital source of genealogical research. But what’s the difference between a death notice and an obituary?

Although some people use the terms interchangeably, they’re actually two different things. Obituaries describe the person, who they are, and what they did in their lives. Death notices, on the other hand, are formalized reports of someone’s death.

Family members would have published death notices in the Adair Progress to detail the person’s name, age, residence, and any information about the funeral service. As family members typically wrote these, they tend to be relatively accurate.

Death notices can help extract more information about an ancestor and uncover where they happen to be buried. So, how do you look up local death notices and sift through hundreds of years’ worth of history? If you want to find death notices alongside Adair Progress obits, follow these tips:

  • Include Boolean operators and proximity search techniques.
  • Use multiple collections to fact-check any found records.
  • Connect other family members mentioned in the death notice to confirm whole sections of your family tree.

The Adair Progress records are invaluable sources of historical information about local people. We make it easy for you to search, discover, and share your family’s untold story.

Deaths noted in the Adair County News, 1918 (January 2nd through December 25th; all 52 issues extant.)

 

CONTENTS

I.             Introduction and notes

II.            Deaths noted in the Adair County News, 1918

III.           Index(by full name & issue date)

IV.           Death certificates issued in Adair County, 1918 (alphabetical order, not included in Index.)

 

I.                Introduction & notes

The preponderance of deaths noted herein were those of residents or former residents of Adair County, and nearly all the deaths occurred in 1918. However, a scattering of deaths from earlier years were also mentioned, as were a number of deaths in surrounding counties. The edition in which the information appeared is noted by a bold headline; e.g.,Wednesday, January 2, 1918.

As with any transcribed records, these death abstracts from the 1918 Adair County News should be approached as a preliminary source of information. Both errors of fact in the original newspaper entries and errors of transcription -- regardless of the care taken to prevent such -- did occur!

Specifically omitted from the deaths noted in the News are 1) those to which Judge H.C. Baker referred in his Sketches of Adair County, and 2) those which had no bearing on Adair County or Adair Countians (e.g., persons of state or national importance, sensational deaths, and the like.)

Many deaths weren't reported in the News, due in part to the custom of the time of charging for obituaries. According to the "Advertising Rates" in the December 4, 1918 edition of the News, "Obituaries, 5 cts., per line up to 20 lines. More than 20 lines 20 cts per inch single column."
