Do You Know that you can search just the Obituaries on the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? You can narrow your search by including a key word in the cemetery name or a township name in addition to the surname you search. Then select the Find All Words option. 
You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using Clippings partition. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage, and some other partitions. 

Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business. 

All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and  for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries. Please send in typed obituaries for people buried in our local cemeteries. If possible include name of newspaper and date. Send typed in your email or in attached Word files. Send to Joyce M.

HOMER CAMP.  The Passing of the Camps.  For the third time within the year the grim reaper has entered the home of Homer Camp, in Camptown, removing husband and father and the two eldest sons of Homer and Harriet Ingham Camp.  -Homer Camp, August 28, 1907  -Cyrus D. Camp, September 3, 1907 -Edward E. Camp, July 22, 1908.  Homer Camp, the last surviving son of William and Jediha Lacey Camp was born March 17, 1823 and was therefore 84 years, 5 months and 11 days old at the time when he laid down the mantel of this earthly life and passed to his reward.  On September 9, 1847, he was married to Harriet Ingham, and had he lived just two weeks longer he would have rounded out his 60th year of married life, for the wife of his youth survives.  It seems fitting that more than a mere mention should be made of the passing of the last male member of the family for whom our neighboring village was named.  While Homer Camp may have had his faults, and who has not, it be truthfully said that no man had fewer enemies, nor was held in higher esteem in the entire neighborhood than he.  Quiet, unassuming, kind and generous to a fault, he scattered the seed of good fellowship and good citizenship all along the roadway of life.  A Universalist in religion, a conscientious believer in the pure principles and ideals of Free Masonry and Odd Fellowship, with which organizations he retained his membership from the time he reached his majority until he “wrapped the mantel of his couch about him and laid down to pleasant dreams.”  He practiced what he preached in such unostentatious manner that few realized the depth of his love humanity.  He suffered long and patiently, and when the final stroke came with the suddenness of lighting’s flash he was ready.  We miss him now but we shall miss him more as the years go by.  His was a character in the main, to live and pattern by and the community has been bettered by his presence.
