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.

WILLIAM H. BURT
Wellsburg, July 29.—William Herschel Burt died at his late home “Prospect Farm” on the lower River Road Monday morning at 2 o’clock, aged 86 years, the last surviving member of the once large family of David and Phebe Burt who were early settlers of the Chemung Valley. Mr. Burt. Was born on his father’s farm, the youngest son, and resided with his parents until his marriage to Harriet Smith, a neighbor girl friend and began housekeeping on the farm where he raised a family of children and lived until a patriarchal age.  Leaving children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to honor his memory and mourn the loss of a parent whose whole married life of some 60 years has been one of love and devotion. An old-time gentleman whose sober wishes never learned to stray from the environment of home and family. He found his enjoyment in daily toil and reading and the pleasure of the fireside. He survived his wife, the late Harriet Smith Burt, a number of years.  He was parent to five children, Howard Elmer Burt, Mrs. Nellie Harding King and Susan Burt, all deceased, and Smith Burt and Alice Burt who resided with their father at the family home at the time of his death.  He also leaves 13 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. The funeral service will be held at the family home Prospect Farm, Wednesday at 2 o’clock and will be conducted by the Rev. Harold Laughhead.  Burial will be at Mountain View.
