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. Tice (JoyceTice@aol.com)

Long, Fannie MAXWELL-a lifelong resident of Troy, expired at her home in West Main street at 6:30  Sunday afternoon. Mrs. Long had been in failing health for a year or more. She was confined to her bed about three weeks. Death was due to acute embolitis.  Mrs. Long was born March 3, 1852, the only daughter of Thomas and Eliza Ballard Maxwell, prominent Trojans of their day. She was the last of her family, an only brother Percy Maxwell, having died some years ago. A crushing sorrow to her was the death of her only child, a daughter, Miss Irene Long, in 1915. In girlhood she enjoyed the advantages of Miss Kootz’s fashionable school in Philadelphia where and in social circles at home she was known for her beauty and vivacity. The kindness of heart and leadership which were part of her heritage found expression particularly in her latter years in many directions. Maxwell Chapter of the Eastern Star, of which she was the first Matron, was named for her, she had been for a number of years President of the Progress Club, and the Presbyterian church numbered her among its staunchest supporters. She will be greatly missed by her neighbors and large circle of acquaintances. Funeral services were held at the home Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. Edward P Morse, her neighbor and pastor officiating. Interment was in Glenwood cemetery. The bearers were Messrs. W W Beaman, Harry S Mitchell, J C Rockwell, Leon Manley, George F ?? and P S King.

MAXWELL W P
Word was received in Troy last Friday morning that W. P. Maxwell had died during the preceding night in his room at the Sahler Sanitarium in Kingston, N.Y., where he had been a patient since last spring.  Mr. Maxwell was the son of the late Thomas Maxwell, once a prominent business man of this village.  His mother was Eliza A. Ballard, daughter of O. P. Ballard, and a sister of Mrs. Julia Crawford of Amsterdan, N.Y. and of Miss Minnie Ballard of Troy. Mr. Maxwell was born in this village June 20, 1864.  He was educated in the schools of Troy, and in the Chester Military College at Chester, Pa.  In school he was distinguished for his proficiency in mathematics and on his graduation at Chester in 1884 he was offered the position of instructor in mathematics in that institution. This position he declined, and returning to Troy he engaged in the drug business, first in partnership with Andrew Stuart in the Redington store on Canton Street, and later with H. C. Carpenter in the B. B. Mitchell store on Main Street. After retiring from the drug business he took an active part in the organization of the Troy Shoe Company, and for several years devoted his time and energies to the business of his company.  Partly on account of ill health he withdrew from the shoe company, and after a period of rest accepted a position as chemist with the tanning firm of Kistler, Lesh & Co., at Lock Haven, Pa., and removed to that place in 1904. The Clinton Dispatch of Lock Haven in its issue of last Saturday has this to say of Mr. Maxwell’s residence in that city:  “Mr. Maxwell twelve years ago entered the chemistry department of Kistler, Lesh & Co., and at the time of his death was superintendent of the five large tanneries owned by this firm, and had special supervision of the chemistry departments of the same.  Mr. Maxwell was one of the best chemists in the state, and his services were highly valued by the company in whose employ he was for so long a period.  During his residence in this city he took an active part in public affairs, and as a Democrat was elected to City Council from the Third Ward and served the city faithfully and well for one term.  He was also a member of the board of directors of the Annie H. Ross library on behalf of the city, while a member of Council.  He was a member of the Lock Haven Lodge of Elks and of Great Island, Presbyterian church. Mr. Maxwell, while quiet and unassuming in manner, was at the same time affable and agreeable.  He was a man of strict integrity and was held in very high esteem by all who knew him.”  Mr. Maxwell was married January 4, 1888, to Edith M. Fredericks, daughter of the late James W. Fredericks of Lock Haven.  The death of Mrs. Maxwell, which occurred November 22, 1914, was a blow from shich he did not recover.  A physical and nervous breakdown followed, adn a little more than a year ago he was granted a vacation by Kistler, Lesh & Co., until his health should be sufficiently restored to resume his position with them.  After spending a time with his sister in Troy he went to a snaitarium at Hornell, N.Y., and later to the one at Kingston where he died. Mr. Maxwell was brought up in the Presbyterian church of Troy and became a communicant member in 1885 retaining his membership here until 1909, when he transferred it to the Great Island Presbyterian church of Lock Haven. The funeral was held Monday afternoon from the home of his sister, Mrs. Fannie Maxwell Long, on West Main Street, who is the only surviving member of his family.  The services were conducted by his former pastor, Rev. E. P. Morse. The interment was in the family lot in Glenwood Cemetery.  The bearers were E. E. VanDyne, R. E. VanSyckel, Dr. M. B. Ballard and F. L. Ballard of Troy.  Horace Crawford of Rochester, N.Y. and Sedgewick Kistler of Lock Haven. Among those in attendance from out of town were Mr. Maxwell’s brother-in-law, B. W. Fredericks of Boston, with his wife and daughter, Mrs. C. E. Walton of Lock Haven, Mrs. Ezra Canfield of Williamsport, S. H. Jewell and daughter of Canton, and Maxwell Minier of Elmira. TGR 1916

L. D. Vosburgh, assisted by Rev. A. G. Cameron, her near neighbor during the years of her residence in Sylvania.  A duet was sung by Mrs. Maud Slingerland and Mrs. David Yorke and a solo by Mrs. Maud Slingerland.  The interment took place in the Sylvania cemetery.

McCLELLAND - Bohlayer, Mrs. Laura McClelland-Following a painful illness of many weeks, Laura McClelland Bohlayer was released from suffering on the morning of December 3rd. (1917)
Born in Troy Township, March 25, 1849, a daughter of John and Patience Jane (Franklin) McClelland, she early manifested unusual qualities. She attended Mansfield Normal School and for nearly nine years taught school. In 1876 she was married to Fred Bohlayer and went to live in Farmers’ Valley. Here began one of the busiest and most useful of lives. Blessed with health and strength and with something of the courage and capability that made great the women of pioneer days, she shouldered the many cares of a busy farmer’s wife and the responsibilities of motherhood. Four sons and four daughters were born to her. In her girlhood she joined the Presbyterian Church, and her young children were early trained in the way of the Lord. She guided them always with a firm hand, exacting the strictest truth and obedience, and they now rise up to call her blessed. To her husband she was for forty-one years a devoted helpmate; ever interested in all the affairs of the farm and his growing business interests. Though many days were filled with toil, self-sacrifice, or anxiety, her cheerfulness and habit of looking on the bright side of things never failed her. Her warm friendliness and deep interest in the joys and sorrows of others gained for her a very wide circle of friends in Troy and for miles around. They spent the last five years during the winters in Sanford, Fla. Her ten little grandchildren were a source of special joy to her. Interment in Glenwood Cemetery-Troy.

Mosherville – (Special) – Sid M’Clelland, one of the most popular sheriffs Bradford County ever had, was found dead by hanging in the garage at the rear of his home here early today.  The former county official had been in ill health for several months.  He was about 55.
Deputy Coroner Harry N. White of Towanda was called to investigate.
Sid McClelland was an extremely popular figure in county Republican circles.  He served as sheriff from Jan. 1, 1931 to Jan. 1, 1933, his term ending when the present sheriff, Howard L. Bailey, assumed office.  There had been some talk lately that McClelland might be a legislative candidate.  This he discounted in a newspaper interview about two weeks ago. Ailing for several months, he recently returned from a sanitarium where it was believed he had laid the foundation for a complete recovery.  His friends, who had been pleased with the apparent improvement in his health, were deeply shocked this morning at the news of his death. Mr. McClelland was a native of Columbia Township, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Casper McClelland.  He attended Columbia schools and also Warner’s Business College in Elmira.  He was a member of the Sayre Elks and attended the Presbyterian Church. He married Miss Anna Wilson of Columbia Township, by whom he is survived.  He also leaves three sons, Donald W. McClelland of Waverly, Casper S.

Mark A. McDOWELL - 1916 (SRGP 76257)
In the death of Mark A. McDowell on Thursday, Jan.6th, Columbia township looses another of its substantial farmers and citizens. For seventy-eight years he lived on the farm where he died, on the hill top at Voltus, being two years old when his father bought the farm and moved his family there. A lovely home and fine barns crowned the hill top while well tilled acres spread around for he was a wide-awake, progressive farmer who reaped the rewards of toil and knowledge and thrift. He was a man of wide sympathies, helpful and generous to neighbors and friends.  He was a quiet, gentle, unassuming manly man, a man of sterling worth, a dependable man. He loved his home with a great love and he was ever a home keeping man. He strove to make his home a farm (?) one of the beauty places of the community and he succeeded. For the last few years he was in failing health but he was able to attend to some of the farm chores until a few days before his death. For quite a number of years he had reduced the farm work to a minimum and had retired from the strenuous work of the farm keeping up only the lighter work and enjoying the comforts of his home to the full.  He did enjoy his home, and his sunset days were full of cheer surrounded by every comfort and by every care that love could supply. For many years he was a faithful member and officer of the Presbyterian church, Sylvania, and he and his family were regular attendants at the church services.  He will be sorely missed by the community and the church. He was twice married.  His first wife was Miss Lauraette McKean (?) who died many years ago leaving one son, Charles, now of Mansfield, Pa.  His second wife was Miss Anna McKean of Watsontown, Pa., who survives him. A younger brother, Myron, of Sylvania, is the only surviving member of the old family circle. The funeral services were held in the home in Voltus on Monday, Jan. 10th, and were conducted by the pastor of the family, Rev. A. G. Cameron, and the burial was in the family lot in Glenwood, Troy. Many friends and neighbors were present and the floral offerings were many and very beautiful.

MERRITT Mildred Lenore (Merritt) Slingerland

101, of Troy, Pa., died on Nov. 25, 2012 at the Skilled Nursing Unit of Towanda Memorial Hospital.  Mildred was born in Cowley, Pa., on Feb. 25, 1911, the second child of Mark Merritt and Bessie Kittle Merritt's growing family. Eight more children would follow, and the Merritt family home was lively and loving. Mildred would reminisce fondly of her life there and especially enjoyed telling the tale of how she would catch the train right outside her house and ride into town to attend Troy High School. While in high school she was a formidable force on the women's basketball team and enjoyed her teammates, the competition, and the stylish 1920s era bloomers. (Years later Mildred would take the gentle teasing from her children about the bloomers — forever captured in team photos — with her usual good grace.) After graduating in 1928 she attended Mansfield College for a while and then worked as a nanny for a doctor's family. On Jan. 23, 1932 she married Robert "Bob" Slingerland of Troy, Pa. and moved to the family dairy farm. She was a mother, a housekeeper, a talented crafter, a farm hand, and an assistant to her husband in the operation of the Valley Stock Yards, a livestock auction house in Athens, Pa. She told of raking hay with a team of horses using an old style "dump rake." She was an avid photographer with thousands of family photos in her collection, as well as a "scrap booker." Her scrap books contain many years of notable events in the local area involving the community as well as her family. She was a faithful member of the First Presbyterian Church of Troy and over the years created innumerable ornaments for the church's Christmas bazaar. All who knew her will miss her.
