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.

LYMAN G. MARVIN DEAD (pencil sketch of his face included)
A Man who was a Friend and Favorite Passes Quickly to Rest.  It will be a great shock to a great many people in Elmira to learn of the unexpected death of Lyman G. Marvin, for ten years the faithful janitor of the Madison Avenue primary school.  Mr. Marvin was attacked by pleurisy last Thursday, which developed into typhoid pneumonia, and when that dread ailment attacked him, his not over-robust physique quickly succumbed, and he died at his residence this forenoon about 9 o'clock.  he was born in 1841 at Webb Mills, and was a farmer when he came to Elmira.  His father was the late Seth Marvin, and the late Edward Marvin, poormaster, was his brother.  he leaves a wife and four children.  he was a member of Wetamoe tribe of Red Men, and of Elmira lodge, United Workmen, a benefit order.  The funeral will be on Friday at 2 o'clock.  When "Lyme" Marvin died, one of the best men who has lived died.  True, he was nor a rich man, nor a man who made a stir in the world; he was a poor man and an honest man; his kindness of heart and generous nature prompted him to do acts of kindness and good will, which will form some of the settings in the crown of glory, which those such as he should wear when they pass into the kingdom of Heaven.  The writer does not know whether Lyme Marvin was a religious man as the term goes; but somewhere in the gospel the Master said - 'come ye blessed of my father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was a hungered and ye gave me drink, I was a stranger and ye took me in, naked and ye clothed me, I was sick and ye visited me.:  So, had Lyman Marvin been laden with riches, he could not take any of it with him where he has gone, but there is something better which he can take, and those who know him feel that he will be welcomed there with the glad acclaim "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me."  {died 10 Dec 1890 buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Elmira, NY}

MAXWELL - William Maxwell. Billy Maxwell. The Noted Elmiran and Temperance Orator Passes Away. The widely known temperance advocate, William Maxwell, died at the Bath Soldier's Home on Friday afternoon last. He was naturally a brilliant, gifted man and came from an illustrious family. He had been in failing health for a year or more. The news of his death was learned with painful interest. He was known to every man, woman and child almost in Elmira, when he was born on the 31st day of December, in the year 1828. This would make him at the time of his death, nearly sixty-two years of age. He was of the old-time Maxwell family, so prominent and renowned in this valley very many years ago. His father was that noted Thomas Maxwell, an intellectual giant in the days of yore, and of whom there are most pleasant and honorable remembrances. The elder Maxwell was one of the ablest and most remarkable men of his time and was noted for a remarkable memory which, allied with the systematic methods of recording the important events of the interesting period in which he lived and prominently took part, caused him to be looked upon as a reliable historian of the early days of this county and section. Nearly all of his papers, of which he had a vast collection, were, however, unfortunately destroyed. The elder Maxwell himself lost his life in a tragic manner, having been killed by the cars. Billy Maxwell came of good stock - the best there was. He was highly favored naturally and had he in early life applied himself to some profession and proved faithful to it, he would have risen to eminence. He was an original wit, and it was always interesting and laughable to hear him relate, as he was fond of doing in his latter years, his experiences which though of a long and checkered career, were of an eventful character. Mr. Maxwell was patriotic in the war days and as a member of the 161st regiment under the command of Captain Dumars, served with credit. Exspousing the temperence cause he was a faithful, conscientious worker in that noble cause. Both in America and in England he appeared on the platform with great success. He was considered the equal of the great Gough in ability to move an audience, his impassioned appeals carrying his hearers by storm. Thousands took the pledge and kept it through his efforts and eloquence. Mr. Maxwell was really a great temperance orator. He often said to the writer that somehow or other he could never do himself justice before an Elmira audience. He said they all knew him here and it was only Billy Maxwell that was talking to them and he couldn't disabuse his mind of that depressing idea. At other places all say he was grand - a truly eloquent, impressive speaker. He certainly did great work in the temperance field and will be principally remembered for that. Personally he was a genial, companionable man, much delighteing to have about him a little company of congenial souls to chat and laugh with. He will ever be held in kindly memory by all Elmirans - a brilliant fellow and one who by self-martyrdom proved himself worthy of recognition and honor. The deceased leaves a wife, who showed herself faithful and devoted to him in his declining years. The remains will be brought to his old loved Elmira for burial, arriving on the 1:30 Erie train. From the depot they will be taken to Woodlawn.
