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.

MISS EULA CLAIRE CALLEN, 20, of Granville Summit, Pa., died unexpectedly early Thursday, Nov. 17, 1938.  She leaves a brother, Donald Callen of Detroit; a sister, Miss Doris Callen, of Granville Summit; four uncles, Lynn Merritt of Detroit, Mark and Harold Merritt of Granville Summit and Donald Merritt of Canton; two aunts, Miss Maude Merritt of Detroit and Mrs. William Stephenson of Los Angeles, Calif.  The funeral will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Soper and Mosher Funeral Home, Troy.  The Rev. O. D. Young will officiate.  Burial will be in Park Cemetery, Canton.
Canton, Bradford Co., PA

SAMUEL D. CALLEN of this place died in a Scranton hospital Wednesday night, November 26, 1924 the result of a fractured skull.  He was found by a policeman, lying unconscious on the street and it is believed he was the victim of foul play, although there were no witnesses of the affair.  To all appearances the injury to his head was made by a blunt instrument.  It was early in the morning when he was taken to the hospital and his death occurred at 10 o’clock that night, without his regaining consciousness.  He was a traveling representative of the Klinker manufacturing Company in Cleveland and was on his journey home to spend Thanksgiving.  He was 37 years old and is survived by his wife and three children.  Although called away from home much of the time by his business, nevertheless during his ten year’s residence in Canton he had made numerous friends.  Well informed on all subjects, always gentlemanly, he was good company.  No reason is known why he should have incurred the enmity of any one.  The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon from his late residence on High Street and interment was made in Park Cemetery.  On Monday, Mrs. Callen received word from Scranton detectives that a thorough investigation had been made and there were no traces of foul play.  A check for his month’s pay, received the same day, refuted the theory that a crime had been committed with robbery as the motive.  There is practically no doubt that death was due to heart failure.  –Canton Independent Sentinel

Austin of Plymouth, N.Y. officiating, ably assisted by Elder R. F. Delmot of the Christian church, who spoke in behalf of the Grand Army and Womans Relief Corps, who touchingly and tenderly rendered their beautiful burial service and the body was taken to the cemetery on the hill and laid to its final rest among the tree clad mountains that she always loved.  As I can not meet each one personally I take this public way of thanking all who so very kindly gave their help, their sympathy and in any way assisted to ease the burden that must fall upon relatives on an occasion of this kind.  I wish to thank the pall bearers and all comrades of the Grand Army, the Woman’s Relief Corps for the beautiful service they rendered and for their love and sympathy toward my mother in the past.  And to neighbors and all others, who have in any way contributed, to extend sympathy, or help.  I thank each and all sincerely.  Lee Morse.  (Buried Park Cemetery, Canton.)
