Kent Funeral Home Records

This database consist of 5,825 funeral records from the Kent Funeral Home in Green City (Sullivan County), Missouri, and covers mostly those who had lived in the area of northeastern Sullivan, northwestern Adair and Southeastern Putnam Counties, MIssouri. These records, dating from 1915 through January 2001, are from the courtesy and generosity of Ron Kent, current owner of the funeral home. He shared this database with Gary G. Lloyd of Kirksville, Missouri with permission to send it to me (Claudia Minor, WebMaster) for posting on the Adair County GenWeb Site. I have formatted this database such that it can be read using Acrobat Reader.

They did this for you, for free. *smile*
