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.

SEAGERS - Mr. Vine Seagers

On the 11th instant, at the residence of his son, V. M. Seagers, in Westfield, after a painful illness, Vine Seagers, aged 84 years.  One of our most valued, charitable, and kind hearted citizens, and an early pioneer of Tioga county, has died.  The announcement of his death will cause inexpressible pain and regret to all those numerous friends and acquaintances to whom he had become endeared by his many kind acts and his honorable and upright life.  Mr. Seagers was born in Massachusetts, Dec. 5th, 1788, where he grew up, married, and had one child.  He served as teamster in the war of 1812.  In 1815 he came into this country, making the journey with his family, in the then usual manner, with ox team and wagon; and settled in Charleston, near Wellsboro, which then contained only two houses.  For some time he was compelled to go to Tioga to do his milling over a road almost impassable even for oxen.  He raised 10 children who lived to marry and become heads of families, nine of whom are now living, and being a man of great energy, industry and robust constitution, he labored faithfully, and cheerfully endured the hardships and privations of a pioneer life.  In 1844 he removed to the town of Westfield, and has, since losing his wife in 1859, resided with his son, Vine M. Seares.  He was much pleased by a ride over the few railroad last Autumn, while on a visit to one of his daughters living in Charleston, also visiting one of his great granddaughters who is married.  A member of the Baptist church, he was a zealous and conscientious Christian, and loved, venerated, and full of years as he was, he has passed from the places of his love to the home of his hope.  (Tuesday, December 31, 1872, The Tioga County Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

THOMPSON Elijah
Wellsboro Agitator - August 20, 1889
Mr. Elijah Thompson, of Westfield, died last week Monday of quick consumption.  He was in his 54th year.

JARED THOMPSON, one of Westfield’s aged citizens died at his late home on Church Street Friday, after a lingering illness.  The following sketch of his life written by Mrs. M. N. Edwards tells in a clear manner of the life of this Westfield pioneer.  Jared O. Thompson was born in Hamilton, Madison Co., N.Y. April 2, 1820 and died at his home on Church Street in this boro June 7, 1901.  Mr. Thompson’s death removes another of the landmarks in the history of Tioga County, his father, Demarquis Thompson having moved to this county when Jared was but a lad of seventeen.  For a few years they lived at what is now Sabinsville, Mr. Thompson, being the post-master of that little hamlet for several years.  Then he went to Harrison Valley and built a grist mill, which he operated for two years and then sold out and removed to Westfield where the remainder of his life was spent.  He first engaged in the hotel business following that occupation from 1862 to 1865, during the stirring times of the Civil War.  Mr. Thompson was intensely patriotic and soldiers going or returning always found a warm welcome at the Thompson House; at one time a hundred veterans returning from the war were feasted under that hospitable roof.  In 1866 Mr. Thompson embarked in the mercantile business, in the corner store, known as “The Old Pioneer” and now occupied by W. H. Shirley.  This business he carried on successfully until 1879 when he retired selling his stock of goods to Mr. Simmons.  Mr. Thompson was married in 1842 to Annie L. Douglas, a daughter of John Douglas one of the pioneers.  After a happy married life of over fifty-nine years, Mrs. Thompson is left to mourn the loss of the husband of her youth.  A daughter was born to them, Villa Thompson Scott, wife of W. O. Scott of this borough, who has shared with her mother the privilege of caring for her father in his declining years.  Mr. Thompson was a kind husband, an indulgent father and a good citizen, whose sturdy sense of right never faltered even when that sense of right led him to adopt unpopular views.  Honor to him and to all who like him, place honest opinion above popularity.  Mr. Thompson lived to see the wilderness to which he first came blossom like the rose; to seethe log hut of the pioneer give way to beautiful and commodious homes; to see the country which at his coming had a few poor roads, intersected by railroads; to see the slow means of communication by stage or post-boy replaced by the telegraph and telephone; to seethe horse outdistanced by the automobile, to see the “district skule” with its three R’s occupied by the graded school with its curriculum of studies fully equal to that of the colleges of early times; in short, to see such advancement along all lines as almost passes belief.  After seeing all those things he might well be willing to go down to his grave “at a full age, as a shock of corn cometh in its season.”  The funeral services were conducted from his late residence on Sabbath June 9, by Rev. R. C. Grames, after which his worn-out frame was laid to rest in the Champlin Cemetery.  –Griffin Scrapbook
