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.

During their early marriage they farmed on tenant farms in Lebanon County until 1953 when they purchased their own farm in Tioga County that later became known as the Crooked Creek Poultry Farm where many local people and stores got their fresh eggs. After the government bought the farm for the Hammond Lake project in 1972 they relocated to Mann Hill in Tioga and later to Plaza Estates in Middlebury Center. To their union six children were born: Wilmer, married to Linda Rowland Prough; Robert, married to Darlene Miller; Nancy married to Terry Ayres; Shelby, married to David Arendt; Nellene, married to Paul Drake; and Timothy, married to Margaret Lecrone.

She was a firm believer in prayer and the truths of God's Word which she taught to nearly every age group through Sunday School, Bible School, and ladies' Bible Studies.

She was cared for by her loving family and in recent years resided with her son-in-law and daughter, Paul and Nellene Drake of Tioga, PA where she waited to be reunited with her beloved Alfred and precious daughter Nancy, and forever be with their Lord in their heavenly home. "There comes a time for all of us when we must say good-bye, but faith and hope and love and trust can never, never die. Although the curtain falls at last, is that a cause to grieve? The future's fairer than the past if only we believe. So trust in God's eternal care, and when the Master calls, let's say that life is still more fair, although the curtain falls."

Death of Frank Hammond - Frank Hammond diedat the home of his daughter, Mrs. John W. Bailey, at Beaver Dams, N.Y., last Wednesday following a three weeks’ illness.

In the middle of life, Mr. Hammond was for several years superintendent for the J. B. Weed and Company, Slate Run lumber operations. The loss of sight in one eye forced him to retire to his home at Hammond where he engaged for many years in farming. At last total blindness made his retirement from active life imperative but he still directed the activities about his farm until three years ago when he removed to Beaver Dams to reside with his daughter and her family. He was a man of high integrity and keen intelligence and after the age of 60 learned the Braille system of reading prepared for the blind and became very proficient in its use. He was a member of the Baptist church. …The remains were brought to Hammond last Friday and taken directly to the Baptist church where the services were held; interment in the Hammond cemetery.

Miss Jennie Hammond - Wellsboro friends and neighbors suffered the loss of one of their number last week when Miss Jennie Hammond, 85, of West Avenue, died at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital late Thursday, after being a patient there for only a week. She will be missed not only by her immediate family but by her church, the literary societies and patriotic orders to which she contributed so much, and by her many admiring acquaintances as well. Born in Hammond, Pa., at the family home on February 8, 1869, she was the daughter of Calvin and Emma A. Stone Hammond. She taught school for over thirty years, retiring in the spring of 1931 after having taught in the training school department of Millersville Teachers College for over eleven years. At one time Miss Hammond stopped teaching and took a business course in Buffalo, N.Y. Afterward she was employed as a stenographer-clerk in New York City and in Pittsburgh. She also worked later in the Ordnance Bureau of the War Department in Washington, D. C. during World War I. After retiring in 1931 she resided with her sister, Ida, in Washington until 1939, when they both returned to their home in Hammond to live with their brother, the late Arthur Hammond. After his death, they purchased the home at 11 West Avenue where the two sisters have since resided. Surviving are one sister, Miss Ida Hammond and three nieces, Miss Daisy Hymes, Mrs. Mildred Smithgall and Miss Marguerite Steele; all of Wellsboro; three nephews, Hugh Steele, of Coudersport; Keith Hammond and J. C. Briggs, of Wellsboro. Miss Hammond was a loyal member of the Baptist Church and active in its societies and in the Sunday school. She was a member of the Chautauqua Circle, the SHG, Wellsboro Chapter DAR and several other community societies, contributing her time and talents to each. Funeral services were held at the Johnson and Tussey Funeral Home on Sunday afternoon with the Rev. David Burrows officiating. Burial was made in the family plot at Hammond.
HAMMOND – Captain John J. Hammond died last week Tuesday, the 27th (Sept. 27, 1898), at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Thomas H. Root, on Hill’s creek, after a sickness of about three weeks. He had been in failing health for a long time, and had frequently remarked that he believed his time for this world was short. Mr. Hammond was born at Luzerne, Warren County, NY, August 1, 1823. He was married at Franklin, Bradford County, May 22, 1848, to Betsey Crayton, and four children blessed their union, all of whom are surviving. He was a consistent member of the Baptist Church for over half a century, and for twenty years he was a Deacon in the Church and performed the duties of the office faithfully. He was a man of sound judgment, of the strictest integrity, generous even-tempered, just to all, of firm convictions and tenacious in maintaining them. He made the Bible his daily guide, and he was the leader whose wise counsel carried the Baptist Church at Holiday through many difficulties. His patriotism was made manifest in July 1862, when he enlisted from Mainesburg as Captain of Company A of the 136th PA Vols. In December of the same year he was in hospitals in Virginia and Washington DC, suffering with liver complaint and bowel complaint, the last mentioned disease becoming chronic and causing his death. In September 1862, Captain Hammond’s company was assigned to guard a bridge on the east branch of the Potomac, and his command took an active part in the battle of Fredericksburg six weeks later. He was honorably discharged February 27, 1863. He was an ardent patriot always, and during the recent war he was enthusiastic in his interest for the success of our arms, and he took a special interest in Company K from this county. Even during his last hours he was soothed by the music of “Marching through Georgia” and while listening to the air was able to fall into refreshing sleep. Captain Hammond held numerous public offices in Middlebury, where he resided for many years. He filled them all with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of the people. His record is most honorable in all its parts and one to which his children may turn with pride. The funeral was held in the Baptist church at Holiday, and it was attended by a large number of persons who deeply mourned the loss of this good man. Rev. Fisher Wilson, of Chemung, NY, a former pastor of the Church, conducted the service. – Wellsboro Agitator, 5 Oct. 1898, p.3 Burial listed as Middlebury #3
