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.

GORE HARRIET N. LENT
DIED- in Sheshequin, on Friday, Aug. 28, Harriet N., wife of Wm. J. LENT, in the 50th year of her age. By the death of the deceased a husband is deprived of a loving consort, who had for many years lightened the cares of life by her uniform good nature, her unselfishness and practice good sense. Children are bereaved of a mother who made their welfare and happiness her hourly care; acquaintances mourn a friend whose amiability, tenderness and benevolence, endeared her to all who knew her.  A large circle of friends testify to the many sterling qualities of the deceased, by the poignant sorrow they feel at her loss; but they realize that while their loss is grievous, her gain is great and that she is not utterly lost to them, but "only gone before." "Bradford Reporter", Sept. 3, 1868. (*Note: d/o Abraham B. Gore & Sarah Kennedy).
