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.

If you are researching or descended from any of those so designated, it is requested that you share your research with Joycs's SRGP if you have not already done so. That is the price I ask for making this site available. It is your opportunity to share in the cost of creating this site and reward Joyce just a tad for making this enormous body of resource available to you. It is a way to pay your dues in a small way for use of this site. Please reference the SRGP ID and the page you found this on the site, when you write to me.

Sheldon, where she died about two hours after the accident.  Miss Engler was also taken to her home.  She will probably recover.  The ladies were on their way to the Blossburg hospital to bring home a friend.  They had traveled alongside the train for some distance and thought they could make the crossing in safety.  When they were on the tracks the engine of the car stalled and the freight, which was going about 50 miles an hour, crashed into them.  Mrs. George was prominent in church circles and was well-known through the county.  She is survived by her husband, two sons, Max, of Tioga and William, of Syracuse University, and one daughter, Mabel.   (another article about this on same page)  The funeral of Mrs. Angie D.
