We are so lucky to have this information that was gathered by Paul Smith over many years, and then updated by volunteers (Please let me know who worked on this).
In many cases these funeral records are better than obituaries.
They may give places of birth and death, father and mother, siblings, occupation, name of spouse, date of marriage, and children's names.

There are 4,921 records. Click on the buttons below to go to those Last Names

These records came from Thompson Funeral Home, Maddox Funeral Home, Hawkins Funeral Home, and the newer records from Coker Funeral Home
A little History is Below

I found this picture of the Thompson Funeral Home online. I wish it was a better picture.

From 'The History of Jack County, Texas' page 811 about Raymond H. Thompson (1901-1974)

     He bought the funeral business from I.N. Miller, who had operated his business from the back of his store. Raymond attended Embalmers School in Dallas, Texas, and obtained his Funeral Director and Embalmers Licenses. He established Jack County's first funeral home in Jacksboro on West Belknap, just west of the Ford Garage in what was formerly called the Matson House. He later bought the Myers House at 263 West Belknap and moved the business there, where he operated it until July, 1945. He sold it to Leon Hawkins, a former employee.

I wish I knew more about any other funeral homes. I love to post something.

The Coker Family purchased the Maddox-Hawkins Funeral Home in 1990 and they are in operation currently.
