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.

Car wreck kills Pa. official - Donald E. Carman, Elkland borough manager, headed state group.
By George Osgood • gosgood@stargazette.com • October 6, 2008
ELKLAND -- Donald E. Carman, Elkland's borough manager and president of the Pennsylvania Association of Boroughs, died Sunday morning in a one-car crash in Smethport, McKean County.  Carman, 70, was a former Elkland Borough councilman and was long active in Democratic Party politics in Tioga County and elsewhere.  State police at Kane said the crash occurred at 9:06 a.m. in front of the Smethport Motel. Carman was driving a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta east on Route 6 and, for an unknown reason, lost control of the vehicle. It traveled off the south side of the road, causing the front and driver's side of the car to hit a utility pole. It then spun counter-clockwise and hit two signs, stopping on the south side of the road.  A Priority Care Ambulance took Carman to Bradford Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.  The Smethport Fire Department assisted troopers at the scene. Carman was wearing a seat belt, police said.  Carman was well-known in regional Democratic politics for decades. He took over presidency of the Association of Boroughs on July 1, after serving as first vice president.  "We are honored to have President Carman, a dedicated individual, serve the members of this association," Thomas Klaum, the association's executive vice president, said when Carman took office. "President Carman has a keen understanding of the complicated issues facing local government today and is engaged in the economic development process at the local level."  In addition, Carman served on the board of directors of the Wellsboro-based Tioga County Development Corp.  The investigation into the cause of the accident is continuing, troopers said.
