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)

PARKE John T- In the passing of John T Parke on June 15, we must recognize more than the usual events which concern the life of a fellow being of our community as the record of his family has been carefully searched out and preserved to a remarkable degree. Just briefly to state that Sir Thomas De Parke, master of the hunt and keeper of the Royal Parks to William the Conqueror, 1066 AD is about the most remote of this family ancestry, and it is of this stock that Joel Parke, father of John T Parke, was born near Hadley, Mass, Jan 2, 1785. When a young man, Joel came to Delhi, NY where he married and lived, fourteen children being born of whom John T was the ninth.  When this son was eighteen years of age, in 1840, they came to Pennsylvania and settled in the Sugar Creek valley below Troy, acquiring property now owned by William VanNoy near the village of East Troy. This was the home of John T Parke for more than three quarters of a century. He followed the trade of carpenter and builder and there are very few if any buildings in a large area of country about here that do no bear the handiwork of either this man or one of his three sons who followed the same trade. A man deeply interested in his home life and family he also took an intelligent part in all community affairs. In the year 1857 when the Methodist church society was formed and a building erected he was elected a trustee which position he held for more than fifty years, keeping the most careful and complete record of all transactions. When he felt it necessary to lay down this responsibility it fell to his son, Charles to continue with credit this work for the welfare of the community.  During his declining years he was troubled very little with bodily sickness. He retained to a markable degree all his mental faculties being a student of the times reading with his one eye, the print of the newspapers, unaided by glass. He was also a careful student of the Bible and felt that in the present world conditions he could see the fulfillment of prophesy. The funeral services were held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Alice Johnson. They were largely attended. The remarks by Rev. R E Brague, his pastor, were clustered about the words of the Psalmist.  “With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation”. Of his children, Charles (deceased), Willis T (died in infancy), Mrs. Alice Johnson, Mrs. Emma VanHorn, Albert T of Elmira and Arthur W…

PARSONS – Eli Burton Parsons (1910) - The death of Eli Burton Parsons shocked and saddened a wide circle of friends, including the Bradford County bar, bereft of their senior member both in point of years and length of practice. While at his office on Thursday morning February 10th he was stricken with apoplexy and removed to his home where he died a week later. Thursday morning at 3 o’clock, just an hour before his son Samuel reached home. Mr. Parsons was born in Columbia Township, November 3, 1824. He attended the old academy in this village and later entered the Cherry Valley Law School near Albany, going by railroad, canal boat and stage coach. His examination for admittance to the bar at Albany in 1850 was successfully passed, soon removing to Troy where he commenced his law practice and has always made his home. In 1850, he married Sibyl Pomeroy of Troy. Their adopted daughter, Carrie Parsons, died a number of years ago. They also cared for a number of others including William Chubbuck, a relative of the late Dr. Chubbuck of Elmira. Mr. Parsons was again married in 1883 to Harriet Aspinwall of Troy, and five children were born to them. Mr. Parsons was acknowledged throughout Bradford and Tioga counties, as authority on points of law. Never caring for office but often urged to run for different offices including that of judge, he was an ardent supporter of his political friends. For many years he was attorney for the Northern Central.  Before its popularity, he purchased Watkins Glen, advertised it widely, and brought it into prominence, and among his other enterprises were Rock City, NY, and Minnequa Springs, Pa. He established and maintained the water works system in his own town for a number of years. For forty years Mr. Parsons has been a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church. He is survived by his wife, four sons, E Burton of Schenectady, NY. Judson A of Cocoanut Grove, Florida, Samuel T at Yale University, Walter at Lawrenceville Preparatory School and one daughter, Harriet, at home and also one brother, Sexton Parsons of Cherry Flats, Pa, all of whom were present at the funeral which was held from his late home on Monday at 1:30. In the absence of his pastor, Rev. R P Morse, the service was in charge of the Rev. A G Cameron of Sylvania. A memorial service was held at the same hour in the Towanda Courthouse, Judge Fanning presiding. After Scripture reading and prayer by Mr. Cameron, H K Mitchell, Esq. read a fine paper descriptive of the life and career of the deceased closing with a tribute to his worth as a learned lawyer and loyal citizen. Interment was at Glenwood Cemetery-Troy.

PARSONS – Eli Burton Parsons - At the memorial services in the courthouse at Towanda Monday, over which Judge Fanning presided, appreciative remarks were made by Judge Fanning, Attorneys Rodney A Mercur, John C Ingham, W T Davies, William Maxwell, I McPhersons, J Andrew Witt, E M Dunham and Judge Cameron of Tioga County the last named of whom referred to the deceased as a good fighter. In the mining troubles of 1865 when the miners were to be ejected from their homes, the coal companies engaged every lawyer over a wide territory except one and that was Eli B Parsons who was retained by the miners. Pitted against all the legal talent in the district, he said Mr. Parsons did not win this case because the law was with the coal companies; but he fought them tooth and nail and made them go the most circuitous route. Several times Judge Cameron, the opposing lawyers had to go back and start their cases all over again.
