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)

RICHMOND, Ruel - Ruel Richmond, who lived alone on a small farm about two miles from Alba, on the road toward Troy, lost his life last week Tuesday morning when his house was burned to the ground.  Details concerning the tragedy are meager for the fire attracted no one and it was not discovered until the following day that the building had burned.  Mr. Richmond, who was about 70 years old, had spent his time in raising truck products which he peddled in Troy and the other villages near his home.  It was not known even that he had lost his life in the burning until search had been made of the ruins.  Neighbors who discovered the ruins of the residence, thought little of this at first knowing that he was away from home at times, but when he did not appear their suspicions were aroused to the possibilities of his having been in the house at the time of the fire.  Investigation was made as soon as the cooling ruins could be approached and there they found the ghastly evidence of the death of the unfortunate man.  Whether or not he was asleep or had tried to leave the burning building will probably never been known any more than will the details of the fire itself.  Mr. Richmond is survived by several children, one of whom lives in Alba.  He was well known to everybody in the section where he had lived, and through his business activities had become known as an old-timer, whom everyone thought well of many buying his vegetables and fruit which he had peddled in Troy for the last time only a day before his death.   Wellsboro Agitator, 3 September 1919
