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.

HATFIELD, MISS IDA (SRGP 18584)
The many friends of Miss Ida Hatfield were saddened by the news of her death, which occurred Wednesday evening, July 4th, 1923, aged nearly 54 years. Every effort had been made to relieve the suffering and restore to health, but of no avail and the Angel of Death wafted her spirit to those realms above. A brave, gentle, self-sacrificing spirit has gone. Dutiful and dependable to the utmost limit, she was a joy and comfort in her home and a warm true friend of all who knew her intimately. It seems hard that death should take one so dear and helpful in the community, but sustained by an unshaken faith in the greatness of God’s kingdom we can lift our tear-wet eyes to the One above, believing that Ida’s pure and helpful life here with us, was but a beginning, and that on another shore that dear life still goes on. Those who knew her best were surely bettered by their contact with one in whom loyalty and devotion to duty were essential qualities. Loving life, she saw in all things whether pleasant or hard to bear, the workings of God’s plan for our betterment. In earlier life she embraced the religion of Jesus, uniting with the Jobs Corners Baptist Church, to which she was a faithful and helpful member until a few years ago, having moved to Rutland, called for a letter and united with the Rutland Baptist church, to which she was loyal and true to every department of the church. She leaves to mourn their loss Mr. and Mrs. Carlos White, with whom she had lived for many years, together with two sisters, Mrs. Hattie Cummings, of Bentley Creek, and Mrs. Frank Williams, of Rutland; one brother, William Hatfield, of Tioga, besides many other relatives and friends. Her funeral was largely attended Saturday, July 7th, at two o’clock, her pastor, Orey Crippen, officiating; burial in Daggett cemetery. The many beautiful flowers attested the love and esteem for the departed.
