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.

PALMER Sherman

Wellsboro Agitator, Tioga, PA - Wed., March 17, 1909, Pg 1

A Victim of Booze –  Sherman Palmer Died in the Westfield Lockup.  Last Wednesday night Sherman Palmer died at the town hall in Westfield.   Mr. Palmer, a man between 30 and 35 years of age, became intoxicated on Wednesday evening and Robert Ayres persuaded him to walk down the street with him as far as Frank Davis' grocery store.  Mr. Palmer's home is just at the rear of the grocery store and doubtless Mr. Ayres thought he would go there.  Later as Mr. Ayres was walking down the street with Edgar Perry who had started to his work at the pump station, they ran across Mr. Palmer and proceeded to conduct him home.  They found that the flat was very wet and asked if he wished to go home through that water or go to the lockup.  He answered that he did not care and as he had slept in the town hall before they decided to take him there, which they did.  In the morning Mr. Ayres asked his son, Charles, to go and let Mr. Palmer out.  He went to the door and called but received no reply.  He then opened the door of the room in which Mr. Palmer had been put and called, "Come, Sherm, it is time to get up".  Again he received no answer and going in he found Mr. Palmer lying on the floor dead.  The body was examined by Dr. Secor who pronounced death to be due to strangulation caused by vomiting, while lying on his face and remaining in the same position.  Mr. Palmer was formerly a fireman at the Eberle tannery.  He lost his place because of the drink habit.  Mr. Palmer and his wife separated some years ago and he and his daughter, Nellie, aged 14 years made their home with his parents and his brother, Fred and wife.
