This is the scrapbook that inspired me to start the Sullivan-RutlandGenealogy Project. Kept my my step-grandmother, Erma SMITH Tice, it was given to Virginia WHEELER McElroy some years back from whom I obtained copies. This includes obits from Sullivan and Rutland Townships and the surrounding townships of that area.

These obituaries are presented in scrapbook order. I can't think of a better way of understanding a community than by reading an obituary scrapbook. If you do not have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through a scrapbook, these will be included in the Search Engine which you can reach from the "Front Door" of the Tri-County Genealogy & History sites by Joyce M. Tice. All Newspaper clipping in this section of the site are in the ~patioga directory
MANY Obits from this scrapbook have been relocated to the Obits by cemetery section of the site.

Comfort and to this union seven children were born, five of whom survive.  They are Truman D.

O. O. Burley, of Painter Run; interment was at Lawrence Corners.  The floral offerings were many and beautiful.  During her entire illness she was very tenderly cared for by her oldest daughter Lepha, who as she stood by the bed as her mother died, said, “Truly, mother is at rest.”

Redfield, survives.  Mrs. Crippen was a member of the Baptist Church and was always ready to help in its behalf as long as her health permitted.  In the passing away of this member the Community has lost a friend and neighbor and all who knew her join in giving sympathy to the family in their hour of sorrow.  The funeral services were held at the family home Monday, July 16, Rev.
