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.

Mr. Barnes was born in Hammond, PA., on December 20, 1886, son of Eliab and Estella (Viola) Daily (aka Daley) Barnes.(Note: 1910 Federal Census, family of Eliab Barnes, indicates that Eliab was married twice. Family legend claims the first marriage produced children, possibly twin sons.)  He was educated in the public schools of Tioga, PA. and was graduated from the Reese Watchmaking and Engraving School at Elmira. (aka ERS). (Note: William graduated Class of 1908. Source: Photos of class.) Deceased came to Little Falls (NY) in 1927 as a watchmaker for the former John Lewis Jewelry Store and later conducted his own jewelry and watch repairing business in Little Falls from 1932 until he retired in 1966.

He was a skilled toolmaker, and would fashion parts – to restore these pieces of equipment to working order.)  Mr. Barnes was a member of the First Methodist Church of Little Falls and Little Falls Lodge 181, F&AM. (William was a 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Mason. ) His marriage to L. Elizabeth Axtell, took place in Horseheads, NY in 1912.  Mrs. Barnes died on September 18, 1949.

Axtell, Fairhaven Mass., with updates through current date.  Axtell family genealogy can be found by “Google” on the surname, - or at http://www.axtellfamily.org/  . Enormous, thorough, extensive resources.

William’s Great Grandparents were: George William & Rhoda (unknown) Barnes. George was born in Connecticut (unknown location) in 1789. Rhoda born in Massachusetts in 1791, both her maiden name and location of birth are yet unknown to us. They were married in abt. 1814 in Virgil, Cortland, NY. Their son (William Edwin’s Grandfather) William George Barnes was born September 1st, 1815; d. Jan 21st, 1898. George and Rhoda also appear to have had one (1) daughter, -  Elizabeth, born in 1825, who married Andrew Jachson ‘Jack’ Colegrove* in abt. 1840. Elizabeth and Andrew removed to Farmington, Tioga PA, next to Elizabeth’s brother’s Township in Middlebury, Tioga, PA, and had seven children there: Delphina, b. Apr. 10, 1849, m. Sawyer of MI, 6 children; Dennis Wilbur, b. abt. 1851, of Tioga, PA; Emory J., b. abt. 1853, of Orono, Osceola Co., MI; Leonora Orcela, b. Jul 1, 1857, m. Dan Goodrich of Tioga, PA, 8 children; Polly Almedia, b. May 14, 1859, m. William Gale of Keeneyville, PA; Tabor T., b. aby. 1863; and, Morgan P., b. abt/ 1861, -  both of Tioga, PA.   Sources: Family Bible records – Kenneth Gee and Ancestor.com records for marriage.* Spelling of Andrew’s name is as I found it.

William’s Grandparents were: Paternal:  William George and Philena C. Starkey Barnes. William G. removed to Hammond, Middlebury Township, Tioga Co., PA. and spent his remaining life farming there. Philena (also spelled in numerous ways – Philania, Phiolena, Philinney, Phiolania,  etc.)  Maternal: Philena C. Starkey Barnes, the daughter of William and Mary E. (Benjamin) Starkey, who removed from NY to Middlebury Township, Tioga Co., PA when William was in his 50’s. Philena’s siblings were: Harriet m. Luther Washburn; Clarissa m. Allen Daggett of Southport, NY; Samuel B. deceased; Eliza m. Erstine Ives of Middlebury, PA; and John m. Caroline Palmer – resided in Middlebury, PA.   Source: Joyce M. Tice Tri-Counties Genealogy Site – census, Township Directory, and see Biographical Sketch at http://www.rootsweb.com/~srgp/1897/ch60b.htm

William G. and Philena had nine children, six of whom lived to adulthood – Harriet Higley; maybe an Elliot, but probably Eliab (misspelled) m. Estella Viola Dailey; Allen Dexter m. Lucy Patterson; Mary; Emma Glendora m. William Ryan; Eleazer Edward (aka Edward Eleazer or E.E.) m. Carolyn ‘Carrie’ Baker. Kenneth Gee’s Bible record indicates one of the deceased children was named Hamel.

William’s Parents were:
Eliab M and Estella Viola Dailey(misspelled Daley sometimes) Barnes. Eliab and Estella’s children were born in Hammond, PA, but the family eventually moved to Southern Tier, NY. (i.e. 1910 Federal Census, Big Flats, Chemung Co., NY Eliab, Estella, Eva May & Henry J.) Their children were:  William Edwin m. L. Elizabeth Axtell Barnes; Oliver Lewis m. Loretta (unknown) of Bath, NY; Eva May m. Harry Smith; and Henry J. m. Hazel Desalt Barnes.
The 1910 Census indicates that Eliab and Estella had been married for 25 years (m. abt. 1885), - and that Eliab had married once before this union.  Family rumor is that twins were born of that first marriage, though no records have been found yet. Estella Viola Daily was the daughter of O. E. (Orlando E.) and Fanny J. (unknown) Dailey of Middlebury, Tioga, PA (1880 Census); Farmington, Tioga Co., PA (1910 Census). Fannie gave birth to 10 children, seven of whom lived to adulthood. Orlando is listed as having been born in Pennsylvania (abt. 1828); whereas Fannie is listed as born in New York abt. 1839. They had been married for 47 years in 1910.  Their children were:  Edith J. b. abt. 1862; Viola E. (Estella Viola) b. abt. 1864; Orlando E. b. abt 1866; Olive M. b. abt. 1869; Nellie M. b. abt. 1872; Mary H. b. abt. 1874; and, E.E. (a girl) b. abt. 1876. All were born in PA.
