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.

The Life and Times of Helen C. Coolidge
By Betty C. Frazier (daughter of Helen Coolidge) For over 80 of her 104 years, the voice of our beloved mother resounded throughout the walls of 17 Queen St. until her Creator called her home. She was the heart of four generations. Her extended family grew to include friends of all ages, especially the caring aides and nurses who shared tender moments in that home during the twilight years to soothe the afflictions of Father Time.  Mother loved and was loved by all who knew her. She was the longest living and last member of her Coolidge generation.  Life took her from walking the muddy streets of Main Street to witnessing man walk on the moon.  She was a living treasure trove of historical events both personal and worldwide. A great storyteller, she shared them to the delight of her listeners.  Losing two siblings before age ten, she became an only child. Her cat became her daily companion. Dressing it up and wheeling it about, the unhappy pet would “skitter” away leaving her in tears. During World War I she named her cat Liberty as a salute to the Liberty War Bonds.  She was among the throngs of people at the Charleston Street train depot the day the Doughboys left. My father (George Coolidge) among them, they did not meet until he returned home, Their honeymoon trip was in a Model T to Galeton. Death ended their 55 years of marriage in 1977.  How she loved trains. She beamed when she was a Mothers Day guest on Tioga Central Railroad accompanied by several great grandchildren. Thanks to Rich Stoving for salvaging the waiting shelter she occupied in Stokesdale for her trips to visit her Wellsboro cousins. It is now a part of the Tioga Central railroad complex.  Mother knew about “shuttles” long before flying in space. Tatting was done by a tiny gadget called a “shuttle” and her hands flew creating this lacy work.  Like many of those who have already gone before her and some still around, a stop at the Candy Kitchen was the highlight of a trip to town, sipping sodas while visiting with Mike and Gus Zarvis and Leola.   Mother’s spring fling was spring housecleaning, before all today’s conveniences, when everything in the house took a beating after being hauled outside – a family tradition long lost. She loved it.  Living in a three-generation family, she was the Angel of Mercy for neighbors and families near and far, from everything to new birth to death’s door and everything in between. Never a joiner, she was one of the first volunteers before the word became popular.  Generous to a fault, sending cards was one of her many good deeds regardless of the occasion and until a couple of weeks before her death she was preparing a Christmas list. Blind for nearly 40 years and nearly stone deaf, she spent hours in prayer for loved ones and friends. We can never recall Mother being ill. It could be said she died of “old age in good health”.   One of her last pleasures was hearing the ringing of the old bell from St. Peter’s when it was rung on the 125th anniversary at St. Peter’s present church, where it was recently place. Recorded for her benefit, she beamed and said, “isn’t that amazing?”   Registered a Democrat, having voted in every election since women got the vote, she studied the candidates carefully and voted for whom she felt was the best. When things didn’t go like they should in Washington, she was angry enough to write and tell them what she thought.   The list is endless but one more item. She recalled getting into trouble with her teacher in one of her lower grades when she got caught sewing doll clothes for a friend. “To think today they are teaching sewing in school. I was born many years too soon.”   Mother was the resource of many of my Reflections.

FRANSSEN - MRS. WM. F. WHITE
 Mrs. Anna Margaret Franssen White, aged 28 years, wife of Dr. William F. White, of Wellsboro, died at her home on Queen street about 8 o'clock last Friday morning, after a short illness of pneumonia following influenza.  Everything that medical science and skill could do for Mrs. White was done, but without avail.  She was born in Newark, NJ, Jan. 21, 1890, daughter of Girard and Susan Quickles Franssen, her father being a native of Holland and her mother a native of Belgium.  Mrs. White was a graduate of the Newark, NJ, High School and a graduate nurse from the Memorial hospital at Newark.  She is survived by her husband and infant son, by her mother, one brother, John, and six sisters, Mrs. E. Dienst, of Hoboken, NJ.; Mrs. E. Klass, Mrs. O. Stickle and Susan, Edna and Clara Franssen, of Newark, NJ. Mrs. White had made many friends during her residence in Wellsboro, since her marriage, on May 9, 1917, and her untimely death is deeply mourned by all who knew her.  A woman of beautiful character and most lovable disposition, her loss will be keenly felt by a wide circle of acquaintances. The funeral was held Saturday afternoon, Rev. Father Golden officiating; interment in St. Peter's cemetery.  The pallbearers were: Dr. J.G. Webster, Ennis Jackson, Harry Phillips, G. Mason Owlett, Esq., and Carl and Jesse Sticklin. "We have lost a good friend today."  Thus spoke my husband after our dear friend Anna Franssen White had passed to the great beyond.  So I was led to muse upon the noble character of this beautiful girl.  Generous to a fault, open hearted and friendly by nature, she won for herself, even in the short time she was with us a host of devoted friends.  She was always ready with a word of sympathy for those in trouble or of advice to those in doubt, winning the love and admiration of all who knew her.  This same unselfishness was shown in her devotion to her home which she loved.  No sacrifice was too great for the comfort and welfare of her husband and little son, in whom her heart was centered.  Her good-natured hospitable ways made her home the scene of many happy gatherings.  But though her heart and hands seemed full with these nearer interests, yet was she never too occupied to nurse a friend in illness, nor to assist her physician husband in his practice, which she did so ably and cheerfully.  And now this happy useful life is ended, and surrounded with beautiful flowers, brought by her loved ones as tokens of their love and esteem, and in the presence of those nearest and dearest to her, she has been laid to rest.  And we who remain can but cherish the memory of a true friend, loyal wife and devoted mother."  The foregoing tribute was written by a personal friend of the deceased.

The Oldest Fisherman

The North Tier correspondent of the North American accepts the challenge of George Goodman, aged 87, of Mahanoy City, as the state's oldest fisherman, and begs to present Stephen Yesse, Sr., of Wellsboro, who celebrated his 100th birthday March 15 [1921], as the most venerable of the disciples of Isaak Walton in this commonwealth. During the recent almost summer weather Mr. Yesse walked three miles from Wellsboro to Marshcreek, and fished for suckers all day, walking home with a fine string. He is an expert wing shot, and always owned a good bird dog, and gets his share of birds every season. Barring a little lameness from rheumatism, he is apparently as good as ever. Mr. Yesse is a native of Austria. He came to this county fifty years ago and entered the employ of the Fall Brook Coal Company, with which he continued as long as he was able to work.
