Do You Knowthat 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.

Elmira: Age 88, completed his final mission on Sunday, March 17, 2013. Born on July 22, 1924 and raised in Elmira, he was called Ron or Ronnie by family and friends. His father was Harry Raub Cary, owner of Cary's Pharmacy located for decades on 115 E. Church Street. Ron was a 1942 graduate of Elmira Free Academy (EFA) and enlisted in the Army Air Corps (Army Air Forces) during his senior year of high school. He turned 18 that summer of '42. Though he did not yet have a driver's license, Ron trained for and became a B-24 Liberator bomber pilot, serving his country in the European Theater of operations with the 724th Bombardment Squadron, 451st Bombardment Group. During late-1944 into 1945, he piloted missions over Austria, Yugoslavia and Romania. Ron was awarded the European African Middle Eastern Theater Campaign Ribbon, Air Medal and the World War II Victory Medal. Ron left the United States Air Force with the rank of Captain. For decades after WWII, Ron stayed connected with the 451st Bombardment Group via newsletters and updates from the 451st Bombardment Group Association. Ron's Elmira home was filled with books, drawings and photos about the B-24 Liberator heavy bomber. Ronnie met his best friend and the love of his life Doris (Chamberlain) during their school days together. Classmates, they both graduated from EFA in 1942. After WWII, Ronnie began dating Doris and they were married on July 15, 1950. They celebrated their very special 50th wedding anniversary with family in New Orleans in 2000 and July 15, 2013 would have marked their 63rd wedding anniversary. Ron and Doris for many, many years were involved with classmates that organized reunions of the Elmira Free Academy class of 1942. Ronnie worked for the Federal Aviation Association for 31 years, and other than brief stints in Buffalo, NY, Dayton, OH, and Louisville, KY, he worked at the then Chemung County Airport (Elmira Flight Service Station) for nearly 25 years. He loved talking with pilots from all over the country. Ron was a handyman and could build, repair or put together most anything. From basements, porches and valances, to bookcases, tables and more, Ronnie could build it. His hobby passions included gardening, small model railroad trains, reading and history, and he was a life-long stamp collector and member of the Elmira Stamp Club. Doris and Ron shared a love and passion for gardening for nearly 60 years at homes in Horseheads, and later, when they returned to Elmira. The yards and grounds of their homes were filled with terraced gardens, rock gardens, flower beds, and vegetable gardens. Ron also enjoyed animals and had many cats as pets over the years, but his favorite pet was his Saint Bernard, Greta. Mr. Cary is survived by his wife of nearly 63 years, Doris (Chamberlain) Cary of The Courtyards at Bethany Village; two children, Peter C. Cary of West Trenton, New Jersey and Susan Cary Channell of Panama City, Florida; as well as four grandchildren, many family members and friends.

CARTER - Zeno A. Carter died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in Towanda, Pa., last Wednesday, at the age of forty-three years and six months. While at his work on Monday he was stricken with paralysis, which caused his death. His relatives and many friend in Elmira were shocked and deeply  ----- by the unexpected announcement of the sad even, which came at a time and under circumstances that rendered it peculiarly distressing to his family. The deceased was the oldest son of Alvah S. and Mary Carter, of this city, who were looking forward with great pleasure to a family reunion on the Fourth of July, when all their children living were expecting to be present. The aged mother, in feeble health, fondly anticipating a happy gathering of her children at home, was ill prepared for the news that one of the sons who had been an honor and a comfort to her in her declining years had been suddenly called from earth. Zeno A. Carter was born in Elmira. When the war of the rebellion broke out he was seventeen years of age and he was one of the first to sign the roll after the firing upon Fort Sumter. As a member of the Eighty-sixth New York volunteers he served three years in the war for the union, particularly with conspicuous bravery in the engagements which his regiment was called upon to fight, among them the second battle of Bull Run and the seven days' battle of the Wilderness. On the seventh day of the latter he was wounded in the leg. He returned to the front after his recovery. About six years ago Mr. Carter went to Towanda, Pa., entering the employ of Humphrey Brothers & Tracy, manufacturers of shoes, and it was while engaged in his work at the factory on Monday last that he suffered the stroke which resulted in his death. In all the relations of life the deceased was an estimable man, and his death is lamented by a large circle of friends who will ever remember the excellent qualities which endeared him to them all. Always faithful to the interests of his employers, he was highly esteemed by them, and among his fellow workmen he was a universal favorite. During the funeral services at Towanda the factory was closed as a mark of respect for the deceased, and the employers and employees attended the services in a body. The services were conducted by Rev. Dr. Nye, of the Church of the Messiah, at Towanda, and were largely attended; many members of the Knights of Honor, Knights and Ladies of Honor and Knights of Labor being present, as the deceased was a valued member of those orders. The deceased was a charter member of Onsis Lodge 2100, Knights of Honor, of this city; was their first dictator and first representative to the grand lodge. He was also a charter member of Ivy lodge, Knights and Ladies of Honor, of Elmira. The remains were escorted to the city by a delegation from Crystal lodge, Knights of Honor. The services at the home of the parents of the deceased, 112 College avenue, were conducted by Rev. M.F. DeWitt, assisted by Rev. Dr. Nye, of Towanda. A profusion of beautiful floral tributes bore testimony to the love of many sorrowing friends. Among those were a large pillow with inscription, "Our Shopmate," from the employees of Humphrey Brothers & Tracy; a broken column with initials, Z.A.C. on the base, from Crystal lodge, Knights of Honor; a cross and anchor from Mystic lodge, Knights and Ladies of Honor, Towanda; a pillow bearing the inscription, "K. of H., Oasis Lodge K. of H., Elmira;" a triangle from Ivy Lodge 766; a cross and anchor from Fidelity Lodge, K. and L. of H., Elmira; a wreath from Charles H. Carter, of Honolulu, S.L.; a cross from the family of the deceased; a canoe of white lilies from Mrs. Gleason, of Towanda, and a cross from Mr. & Mrs.  Aldrich, of the same place. The remains were interred in the Second street cemetery, this city. The pallbearers were F.H. Ingersoll, S.B. Hakes, Philip Gruber, Joseph Davis, J.M. Craig and C.F. Camp, representing Oasis lodge, 2100 K. of H., and Ivy lodge, 766, K. and L. of H. The deceased leaves a wife and an adopted daughter, who are thus called upon to mourn the great loss of a kind husband and father. Besides the parents of the deceased a sister also survived him, Mrs. M.E. Havens, of Elmira, and two brothers, Joseph F. Carter, of this city, and A.S. Carter, Jr., of Rochester. - Elmira Telegram, July 3, 1887
