            The death notices from the NASHVILLE CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE and occasional "other" genealogical references found in this periodical have been abstracted from this official publication of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, by the present compiler from the microfilm copies of the same owned by the Lambuth University in Jackson, Tennessee. This compilation covers the years 1850-1851 and with its completion will bring to a close the abstracts of this periodical through available issues until the second decade of the twentieth century. For her thoughtful help in making the microfilm copies available to him, the compiler is grateful to Jackie Wood, acquisitions librarian and archivist of the Memphis Conference of the United Methodist Church.

            The compiler is also grateful to Laurel Baty and David L. Donahue for their efforts in making this material available on the internet, thereby providing a means of getting the genealogical data to a broad audience of interested genealogists.

            For persons interested in getting full copies of these obituaries and/or death notices in the old-time NASHVILLE CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE they may order these for a nominal fee from the Methodist Library, Drew University, Madison Avenue, Madison, New Jersey 07940 or order them from Ms Wood at Lambuth University Library, 705 Lambeth Boulevard, Jackson, Tennessee 3830l, also for a nominal fee.
