Did you realize that American obituaries go back well over 300 years, reaching right back to the Mayflower?
For example, this is Peregrine White’s obituary.
He was born 20 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower, and died in Marshfield, Massachusetts, in 1704.
I found his obituary in GenealogyBank’s Historical Newspaper Archives.
