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.

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.

Centenarian Edgar Thomas Cullen Fish died on Sunday, September 26, 1976 at the Green Home in Wellsboro. He was born December 8, 1875 in Tioga and received his early formal education in Tioga Schools. Mr. Fish was an artisan and was recognized nationally for his exquisite creations of brass and copper vases, candelabra, and plates to name a few, some of which he sold for a nominal fee. He was also an excellent jewelry repairman and furniture refinisher. Mr. Fish loved his work and only retired at the age of 92 because of ill health. Mr. Fish was honored in this newspaper less than a year ago when a beautiful article about his life and accomplishments written by W. S. Taylor appeared in the Gazette’s December 4, 1975 edition. Funeral services were held on Tuesday at the Kuhl Funeral Home in Mansfield with burial in the Evergreen Cemetery at Tioga. The Rev. Edward Trask, pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church at Tioga officiated. – Wellsboro Gazette, 29 Sept. 1976, p.12 

Newspaper article about Edgar Thomas Cullen Fish
Wellsboro Gazette, 4 December 1975, p.12
ONLY HALF AS OLD by W. S. Taylor
There lives a man in Wellsboro who will reach the still venerable age of 100 years on December 8, 1975. Incredible when you think about it, but he has seen the passing of just over half the history of his country to date. You and I have seen such wonders in our time that even men walking on the surface of the moon seems to hold little awe for us. But how many remain who remember the first demonstration of a working television set in 1929, or the first commercial radio broadcast in 1920, or radio’s invention in 1895. Who recalls the advent of the telephone in 1876? Well, he can’t remember that either, but he was around. Learning to walk and talk and being spoiled by Ma and Pa. He saw the transition from the horse to the horseless carriage, from balloon to jet, from washboard to automatic washer, from clothes pins, ropes and poles to dryer, from cotton, wool and silk to nylon and dacron, from abacus to pocket calculator, from kerosene lamp the fluorescent, from “calm yourself, sir” to “cool it, baby”. He has seen his country through three major wars, a “police action” and an eleven-year-long “military involvement.” This man is Mr. E. T. C. Fish, and he currently resides at the Green Home on Central Avenue. He was born and raised in a small bungalow on Broad Street in Tioga, the only boy of six children. For over sixty years in the workshop-kitchen of that home, he maintained a national reputation for his beautiful craftsmanship in hand-hammered brass. The art was self-taught through long years of hard work standing at the narrow workbench before the window. At times during his productive life, he was commissioned to produce special items such as a pair of large altar vases for a cathedral in London, England, perhaps his most ambitious project. The products of his craft numbered in the thousands, candlesticks, napkin rings, trays, dinner bells, and candelabra. Letter openers, fruit bowls, ashtrays and ingenious pivoted candlesticks that double as wall sconces. These and many others all of his own design. Although self-employed, his discipline was such that he worked an eight-hour day, six days a week, resting on the Sabbath, Sunday, according to his Episcopal upbringing. Today, the products of his hands are scattered all over the world in the possession of customers who often traveled hundreds of miles each year to see his latest display and purchase another unique piece. All of his work day was not always devoted to his brass work. He was an excellent watch, clock and jewelry repairman, also self-taught, and he frequently made critical cogs or escapement parts by hand. In addition, he was a highly skilled furniture refinisher and always in the summer had one of the largest and best-tended and most productive vegetable gardens in town. Over the years, a reputation as a pretty fair “Yankee horse trader” was earned by Mr. Fish who said he would never take unfair advantage of another man but was not averse to allowing a “sharpy” to take advantage of him. In this manner, he says, he was able to acquire several of the beautiful antiques with which his home was furnished. His productive years ended at ninety when he was hit hard by one of the exotic flus of recent years. His strength to work was sapped and never returned, although his strength of character and spirit has never faltered. He remains mentally sharp and active, in spite of failing eyesight and hearing, and has a deep affection for people. His greatest pleasure today is in conversation, and he still listens attentively, a habit acquired through a lifetime of interest in current events and his state and nation coupled with a readiness to learn from his peers. But he can tell such tales of days past and his own life, gleaned from a phenomenal memory, as to hold a listener almost spellbound. His reminiscences are most often filled with humorous incidents, as his wit was always, and remains today, a strong feature of his personality. Asked how he managed to live to such and age, Ed is most likely to attribute it to chewing tobacco (which he doesn’t actually chew but just holds in his mouth). He admits to no real logic to support the theory, but says if you don’t try it you’ll never know. The life and times of Edgar Thomas Cullen Fish are certainly worthy of compilation in at least one good-sized volume, but such will probably never happen. The stories of friends, experiences and events of his life have for years been of particular fascination to this writer and he is their only available source. If you should drop in to visit him, be sure to ask him to tell you something of his experiences in the mountains of Tennessee, something of the escaped murderer perhaps, or of the man who was shot dead while seated next to him on the front porch of the commissary. He’ll enjoy the telling, and you will enjoy the listening. Next year we will celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of the birth of the United States of America, and on December 8th of this year wouldn’t it be nice to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the birth of E. T. C. Fish? He’s only half as old.

Tioga, Pa., Feb. 20.--The entire community was shocked to learn of the death Saturday night of John L.

Mr. Inscho was a lifelong member of the Baptist church.  He was a man of strong principles, always active in any good work, and always ready to lend his services in bettering the town and community.  He was devoted to his family and to his friends and his loss will be deeply felt by all who knew him. The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Geo. W. Burroughs, formerly pastor of the Tioga Baptist church, officiating, assisted by Rev. C.W. Blount, of the M.E. church; interment in Evergreen cemetery.  Mr. Inscho is survived by his widow, by one daughter, Mrs. William McCormack, of Lima, NY, and by two brothers, Jesse P.
