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.

A strong believer in education, Jane served for over forty years on Northeast Bradford Student Loan Board. As Jane’s health declined, she was assisted at home by her dear friends Arlyn and Arlene Wilbur and later moved to Brookdale Vestal West. There she made friends with the staff and residents. We would like to thank Arlyn and Arlene and the caregivers at Brookdale for the love and care they gave to our mom. Jane will be deeply missed by her children: Janet and Bret Platt of Culpeper, Va; Rebecca and Conrad Carlsen of Rome, Pa; Richard E. and Lisa Upham of LeRaysville, Pa; Abigail R. and William Jones, III of Friendsville, Pa; her sister Stella Walker of Lewisburg, Pa; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Katherine Brown of Towanda, Pa; Anne and John Dean of LeRaysville, Pa; her special grandchildren: Devin, Karina (and fiancé Matt Boozer), Dylan and Logan Platt; Kristin (Tom) Shores, Tory (Amy) Carlsen, and Kelsey (Stephen) Peterson; Bryce Upham, Kent (Nikki) Upham, Levi Upham; Luke (Susanne) Jones, Kenzie, Keri, Peyton, Krista, and Kendel Jones; her great grandchildren: Lexi and Riley Shores, Addie Peterson. Several nieces, nephews and their families also survive. Jane was welcomed into heaven by her parents Newell B. “N.B.” and Ethel Wilmot and was longing to be reunited with her beloved husband John Richard. Family and friends are invited to attend a period of visitation on Saturday, February 3rd from 12 – 2 pm at the Neath Welsh Congregational Church.
