1. Choose Cemeteries - Bradford.

Obituaries

BESLEY Susan - Mrs. Bateman Monro died suddenly last week Sunday evening of dropsy at her home in Sullivan Township. [Susan Besley Munro, buried Morgan Cemetery, Austinville, Columbia Township, Bradford County] 1885

Mrs. B. Monro [Jane Lay SRGP 07004]
In Sullivan, on the 18th ultimo, Mrs. B. Monro, aged 43 years, 5 mos. and 23 days.  The subject of the above was a member of the Episcopal Church.  She embraced Christianity when young, and her life since has ever been in accordance with her profession.  Up to the time of her illness she was an active member of society, always endeavoring by example to win others to the Saviour she loved; and even during her last sickness scarcely one visited her but profited by her words of counsel and encouragement.  She died in full assurance of faith.  (Wednesday, April 1, 1863, The Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
