Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008 

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.

SRGP ID Added in parentheses by Joyce M .Tice if included in her Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. 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. For women listed under a married alias, I have provided her real name, if I know it. Alphabetized by surname at birth.

Mr. Smith was converted at the age of seventeen and was an active church member all his life. He was Sunday School Superintendent at Elk Run for many, many years. He was a continuous revelation of the Christ he honored and his presence in the community, the congregation or among a circle of friends was always a blessing.   A familiar face and figure is gone from relatives and friends, but in Byron Smith's case there need be no regrets as far as he is concerned. He has been faithful in the performance of the tasks that have come to him and now the Master has required his services in a higher sphere.   Surviving are his widow, three sons, named above and one brother, Rev.

She was of a retired nature, and of a remarkably sweet disposition, and although suffering  from poor health for a number of years, she bore up under her afflictions with great fortitude and resignation. She gathered to herself a very large number of friends in whose society she greatly rejoiced. She had been for many years a member of Silver Link Rebeckah Lodge, and the order honored her by attending in a body her obsequies and by beautiful and suggestive ceremonies at the house and cemetery. Early in life she united with the M. E. church of Elk Run, with whom she ever walked in loving and devoted fellowship. Her life was of the high order that graced her home and made its experiences rich with gentleness and goodness. Ever mindful of the happiness of her friends and loved ones, she requested that they should not mourn for her. She made the arrangements for her funeral service, selecting Luke 12:40 as the text to be used by her pastor, The Rev. C. D. SMITH, expressing the desire that the subject used might be a blessing to any unprepared for death. She leaves, besides her husband, and daughter, Charlotte, her parents and a sister. And so in the presence of a host of relatives and friends, amid the fragrance of flowers and the deep regret of all, her body was carried to the cemetery in Gray Valley, some day to be reunited in glorified form to her translated spirit amid the joys of Paradise.

The floral decorations of the casket were elaborate and extremely beautiful, and appeared doubly so, considering the midwinter season. There was an unusually large attendance at the funeral, and all seemed to feel that the community had, in the death of Mr. Strange, sustained an irreparable loss. Mr. Charles Strange, for many years a prominent and influential citizen of Sullivan, died quite unexpectedly at 4 o'clock last Thursday morning, aged about 56 years.His disease was pneumonia following an attack of grippe. Mr. Strange leaves a widow , three sons and three daughters, all at home except one daughter, the wife of M.F. Rose, of Mainesburg. Deceased was a brother of Mrs A. Richmond, of this boro. He had held the office of Justice of the Peace a number of years, and was a generous supporter and consistent member of the State Road Baptist church, and enjoyed to a preeminent degree the respect and confidence of all who knew him. The funeral was largely attended from his home Sunday afternoon at 1 o'clock, the Rev. Frank H. Cooper, of the boro officiating. The burial was in the Gray Valley cemetery. The death of Mr. Charles Strange of Sullivan which was mentioned in these columns last week was an unusually sad event. His widow is almost a helpless cripple in consequence of a fall some months ago, and there are a number of children in the family to be looked after.

STRANGE - MATTIE ROSE (SRGP 06955)
     For more than thirty years it has not been my privilege to call Mansfield my home, but it has always been my "home-town", and never a year has passed that my family and I have not been there many times.  To think of Mansfield without Mattie Rose is like thinking of it with Main Street gone.  Her home and her heart were open wide to all who came.  New friends, old friends, rich or poor, glad or sad--all found in Mattie Rose a friend who was ever ready to happily share their joys and sympathetically bear their burdens with them.  Her life has been one of service, generosity, kindness, love and understanding.  Surely she loved and was loved by a legion.  Indeed "angels must smile at the good she has done", though her modest ways never permitted her friends to know much about her kind deeds.  Yes, we who knew her best feel her loss deeply.  Closely related as she was to my mother, (their fathers, brothers; their mothers, sisters) made her like one of my family.  How I shall miss seeing her and experiencing the joy those friendly chats about our family joys long years ago!  Do we really wish her back!  We are so human that perhaps our selfish hearts feel her passing so keenly that we cannot bring ourselves to say, "Thy will, not mine, be done," but we also know, that, for Mattie Rose, "the best is yet to be,"-- for she must be among the noblest.
