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.

LOSEY Catherine

Wellsboro Agitator, Tioga, PA--Wednesday, May 16, 1917

Catherine Losey Warren, widow of the late Dr. Thomas R. Warren, died at her home in Elkland on May 10, and was laid to rest in Highland cemetery on Monday afternoon, May 14th. She was born at Nelson, July 15, 1839, her father, Artemus Losey being one of the pioneer settlers of the Cowanesque Valley. Her early education was received at a private school for young ladies which was at that time a popular school in Lawrenceville. Her studies there were followed by 2 years' work at Alfred University. In 1857 she was married to Dr T R Warren, and after several years spent in the West, they returned and became residents of Tioga, PA until 1887, when they removed to Elkland. Of French Huguenot descent through her father, and of Pilgrim extraction by her mother, she naturally inherited sturdy religious principles, and early in their married life she and her husband (who was a "birthright member" of the Quaker church) united themselves with St Andrew's Episcopal Church in Tioga. For the last 20 years of her live she was a great sufferer from asthma but bore her affliction with Christian resignation. Being fond of reading and of writing, she spent much of her shut-in life with her books, her pen and her bible. Her friends found her a most interesting companion, thoroughly conversant with all the topics of the day. When her eyesight failed she found her cross almost heavier than she could bear and she longed for the time to come when she would be called home to eternal rest. She is survived by one son, Roy Warren, a pharmacist in Elkland; a daughter, Clara Warren Vasey, and one sister, Mrs. M B Seely, of Nelson.

WILLIAM B. MEAD Killed. – Fell From a School House at Ridgway to Death.  A telegram was receive Monday evening imparting the sad news that W. B. Mead a well-known and highly respected citizen of this place, had met instant death as the result of a fall from a school house building at Ridgway on which he was working.  The terrible news was broken to Mrs. Mead as gently as possible but she was prostrated with grief. Monday afternoon, Mr. Mead, who is a carpenter, was working on the cornice of the new Ridgway school house and had finished his work and was about to descend.  In doing so he put his hands on a scantling which he supposed was fastened to the building, but the stick proved to be loose and the unfortunate man lost his balance and went down through the partly finished building to the cellar.  The horrified witnesses of the tragedy hastened to his side but he was beyond earthy aid, the fall having caused almost instant death.  The body was brought to this place for funeral and burial arriving on the afternoon train Tuesday.  The funeral will be held from his late home today at 1 o’clock.  Interment in the Elkland (Highland) Cemetery.

 – Some Facts Concerning the Life of a Prominent Westfield Man.  William B. Mead, the subject of this sketch was born at Ludowville, Tompkins County, N.Y., (near Ithaca), April 11th, 1839 and died at Ridgway, Penn., Dec. 17th, 1900 at the age of 61 years.  He moved to Chatham, Tioga County with his parents at the age of 19 years.  This was in 1858.  That was 42 years ago and aside from a residence at Geneva, N.Y.  of about four years and a short time in the West, he has lived in Tioga County all that time. His father’s name was John Mead, who was the father of eight children, four of whom are living and were present at the funeral, Thursday, December 20th, 1900: Celia A. Woodcock, Ludowville, N.Y.; Mrs. Louise Chisom, Sabinsville, N.Y.; Marior A. Mead, Ludowville, N.Y.; Mrs. M. B. Hawley, Buffalo, N.Y.  Forty-two years have witnessed a great change in Tioga, Potter, McKean and Cameron counties in this “Keystone State.”  No doubt William’s father, John Mead heard the howl of the wolf, and the growl of the panther occasionally at that time, and the unbroken forest south of the Cowanesque was abundant with the red deer; and I have no doubt hunters did not have to go so far as “The Big Black Forest” to tree a black bear, or to catch a long string of speckled trout.  And if William’s father had been told that the screech of the engine whistle would be heard in less than 25 years in Potter and Tioga counties, he would thought it only the wild imagination of some fitful dreamer, but William Mead lived to see the valley and the mountain side cut with railroads without number, the telephone and telegraphs track our mountains and valley, the forest has given way to beautiful farm lands, and the log cabin wherein there was so much comfort, has given way to modern architecture, and coal and wood relegated to the rear for natural gas, and a large degree of these changes have been going on since William B. Mead moved to Tioga County.  He saw that houses were to be built and so he began a trade at Knoxville, Pa., that should enable him to furnish wood-work, sash, doors, blinds, etc. for these new buildings.  And he engaged in this business at Elkland, Knoxville, Cowanesque and at this place with the firm of Plank, Krusen & Co., and much of his handiwork can be found in a number of buildings in this village.  Work slacking a little with him here, and a good job opening at Ridgway, he accepted it, where he went in April last, and remained until he met his end last Monday, Dec. 17.  William Mead made friends who held fast to him.  He was a kind neighbor, a loving husband and father.  He was of a hopeful mind and always looked at life and its conflicts from the mount of cheerfulness, rather than from the valley of gloom.  He was gifted as few are with natural talent for music.  This developed and ..trained made him very desirable where needed, either at church or the social circle.  And he loved to sing and seemed to sing by the scriptural rule, especially church music, “with the spirit and with the understanding also.”  He went into a choir when but 10 years old.  He had charge of the choir for a longtime in the Methodist Church, where he will be missed by his companions who have sung with him so long.  At one time he was a member of a very much sought for quartette of this place, made up of what was known as the Mead and Kimball Quartette.  In the church he was very useful in what was known as “The Wrecking Band,” at one time he was president of this society, and I understand did very effective work along lines of reforming men.  He was a member of the Knights of Honor at Knoxville, in which society he was respected and honored.  He was twice married, his first wife, Viola Freeborn of Knoxville, lived only about a year and a half.  December 27th, 1871, (29 years ago) he married at Elkland, Eva Benedict, who was the daughter of Rev. E. B. Benedict, a long time pastor of the Presbyterian Church at that place, and very much loved and honored.  His wife still survives him and mourns today the loss of a kind and loving husband.  In the year 1878, there came to their home a bright boy whom they named George, but the frosts of death’s winter snapped this flower away when but 3 years of age.  Later another gift was presented to Mr. and Mrs. Mead, and they named him Harry R., who with his wife were present and mourned for father, but not as those without hope.  William Mead never could mark the identical place where he passed from the natural into the spirit life, “he always said he was trained into it.”  It matters little how only so it be reached and lived.  His mother died when William was about four years of age and left motherless, God seemed to take him up and care for him and he became a charter member of the 1st Congregational Church (now Presbyterian) of Knoxville.  He enlisted in the United States service in 1865, but only reached Williamsport, Pa., and the news came of Lee’s surrender and the war was at an end and he was not needed.  R.

MOUREY Carrie
Wellsboro Agitator - March 12, 1919
Mrs. Carrie Mourey Carpenter, died at her home in Arlington, N. J., March 6, after an illness of only a few hours.  She had apparently been in her usual good health and was engaged in conversation with one of her neighbors when she became unconscious at 5 o'clock, Tuesday, March 4, and died Thursday, about 1 o'clock, without regaining consciousness.  Although Mrs. Carpenter had been subject to much illness for the past four years, her friends believed her to be better and her sudden death is a great shock.  Carrie Mourey Carpenter was born in Farmington, April 19, 1871, the second child of Ira H. and Fannie C. Mourey.  At Christmas, 1890, she was married to Philip T. Carpenter, of Little Marsh, and to this union were born three children, Miss Blanche Carpenter, Mrs. Pearl Sydow and Lou C. Carpenter.  The family resided at Little Marsh for several years and then removed to Arlington, N.J. where they have since resided.  Mrs. Carpenter was a devoted Christian and a member of the M. E. church of Arlington.  She had not a thought that was not a gentle one, not one that did not hold all the world in the arms of kindness.  She was to her friends what the sunshine is to the world and this eclipse to them brings both darkness and chill.  She was always gentle, lovable, and her sweet face made sunshine in shady places.  If strangers felt the charm of her courtesy and happy, sunny temperment, how much more so to the members of her own family upon whom she lavished all the sweet earnestness and love of her mind and nature.  The remains were brought to the home of Mrs. Carpenter's mother in Elkland, where the funeral was held Sunday afternoon.  Rev. Mr. Chattin officiating and she was laid to rest beside her father, who died three years ago.  She is survived by her husband, three children, her mother, two sisters, Mrs. Alice McCallum and Mrs. Lyda Baker, and one brother, L. C. Mourey.  The sympathies of this community go out to the bereaved family.    Buried in Highland cemetery.
