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 cannot be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

From the Tioga County Agitator – August 11, 1859
Hon. John Ryon
The subject of this notice was born in the valley of Wyoming near Wilkesbarre Pa., on the 1st day of January, 1787, and died at his residence in Lawrenceville, Tioga County, Pa., on the 22nd day of July 1859.  The father of the deceased was a resident of Wyoming prior to the American Revolution, and during the war was a soldier in the army of Washington.  He also served in the campaign of Gen. Sullivan against the Indians on the Chemung and Genesee.  He was born in Connecticut, where his paternal ancestor who was an Irishman had settled in colonial times.  Soon after the close of the revolutionary war he removed from Wyoming to Southport on the Chemung.  Judge Ryon was one of the early settlers of Tioga County.  In the year 1810, soon after his marriage, he located on the Cownesque River.  This location embraced what is now called Elkland village, but was formerly known as Ryonsville.  At that time the territory now included within the County of Tioga was a wild unsettled region of country.  The early settlers were subjected to all the inconveniences, hardships and privations incident to the settlement of a country heavily timbered and possessing a rigorous and inhospitable climate.  Judge Ryon had his share of these hardships and privations; but his strong physical frame and great energy o’character, combined with habits of temperance, industry and economy enabled him to overcome them and to succeed in clearing up and paying for the tract of land on which he located and making it one of the finest farms in the valley of the Cowanesque.  On this farm he resided thirty-nine years, and brought under cultivation nearly two hundred acres of land before he left it to reside at Lawrenceville.  It is high praise to say of Judge Ryon, that this and all his subsequent acquisitions were the results of his own exertions and energies,  -- that he had not the aid of fortune or rich friends to commence with, and that in his first contact in life he was compelled to assume the condition of a pioneer, and contend with the difficulties and privations of a residence in the wilderness.  The deceased was well known as a public man and a politician, having held at various times by appointment and election positions which brought him prominently before the people, and gave him as extended acquaintance not only within the County of Tioga but throughout the State of Pennsylvania.
 At the October election of 1819 he was elected a member of the House of Representatives of the State and was continued a member during six successive terms.  He was afterwards elected a member of the State Senate and served one term.  In the spring of 1829 he was appointed Superintendent of the West Branch Division of the Pennsylvania Canal, and served in this capacity three years.  On the 29th of Jan’y 1833, he was appointed by Gov. Wolf an associate Judge for Tioga County. – He held this appointment until the 27th of February, 1842, when it was annulled by the limitation contained in the schedule to the amended Constitution of the State, adopted in 1838.  He was afterwards re-commissioned by Gov. Porter for the term of 5 years – commencing on the 4th of March 1842 and expiring the 4th of March 1847.  He also held the commission of a Justice of the Peace under Gov. Snyder, bearing date the 15th of Feb’y, 1816, and several military commissions, the highest in rank of which was one for the office of Lieut. Colonel.  The duties of these several stations were discharged by the deceased ably and with strict fidelity to the public interests.  Judge Ryon in his political career was always a member of the Democratic party – holding his commissions under Democratic Governors and his elective offices at the hands of a Democratic constituency.  For this party and its leading men and principles he always cherished a warm affection.  His political sentiments however were eminently conservative, and he was always a devoted friend and supporter of the interests and policy of this native State, both in her legislative halls and in his retirement as a private citizen.  In his social intercourse Judge Ryon was frank, courteous and manly.  He was kind to the needy and afflicted, a sincere in his friendships, open hearted in his antipathies, and reliable in his business transactions.  In his religious attachments he was Presbyterian, having been a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church during many years and contributed largely to its support. He left a large family circle and many warmly attached friends to mourn his loss and cherish his memory.          Cox.   Wellsboro, Aug. 3, 1859.

WARREN Thomas Ransom

Wellsboro Agitator – October 5, 1904

THE LATE DR. T. R. WARRER - Sketch of a Good Citizen, an Able Physician and a Remarkable Man.

To the Editor of the Agitator - ELKLAND, Sept., 30 —"Death is the Crown of LJfe." Time, in  his ceaseless march, with his ruthless scythe gathers in the young and old. This time he has taken an aged, gifted and prominent citizen - respected, revered by all who knew him, and deeply beloved by, his grief stricken family. Thomas Ransom Warren, M. D., D. D. S., was born Jan, 12,1831, at Cowanesque.  His spirit departed this life on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at mid-day, being seventy-three years of age. His parents were pioneer settlers Of Tioga county.  Dr. Warren was of Quaker ancestry. During the persecution of the Quakers by the Puritans of -Massachusetts the Colonial forefathers of Dr. Warren fled to Albany, N Y., seeking refuge with the "Friends." Two generations later, the parents of Dr. Warren came into Tioga county, making the journey on horseback, guided by the blazed trees along the trail, meanwhile sustained by an abiding faith and trust in that Omnipotent Power that ever makes for righteousness.  The mother carried in her lap the precious pieces of china brought over from England, these pieces still being heirlooms in the family. The Doctor was educated at the Union Academy at Academy Corners. He studied medicine in the office of Dr. W. W. Wright, at Nelson, graduated in medicine at the Buffalo Medical College, and in middle life graduated from, the Philadelphia Dental College. He was one of the oldest physicians in the county, and so far as his knowledge went, he thought himself to be the first physician to introduce the use of the hyperdermic needle in Tioga county. He was initiated into the Masonic order in the Wellsboro Lodge and was Master of the Lodge at Tioga, and was in full standing in the Elkland Lodge at the time of his demise. Dr. Warren was a member of the Quaker fraternity until his marriage to Miss Catharine Losey, of Nelson, in 1857. The fact of marrying " out of meeting" debarred him from further membership in the Friends' Society: but all his life he adhered to, lived and practiced, the teachings of that fraternity. Through a friendship formed with the beloved Bishop Stevens of the Episcopal Church of Pennsylvania he became a most devoted churchman, being for many years senior warden of St. Andrew's church at Tioga and at the time of his demise was secretary of the Episcopal mission at Elkland. In 1870 he moved to Kansas, locating at Parsons, where he opened the first drug-store in Labette county.  A picture of this quaint little prairie store may be seen in the files of Harper’s Weekly in 1878.  During his residence there he was the prime mover in organizing two Masonic lodges – one at Tonganoxia, the other at Parsons.  He also organized the Episcopal Mission there, which became the foundation of the present flourishing church.  Owing to the climate he contracted malaria, thereby Josing his health, to such a degree that he came back, "to live " as he expressed it, on the sunny slope of an eastern hill, where the autumn leaves may fall over me." All his life time he was enamored of the fall season of the year, with its golden harvests, its mellow sunshine, and the gorgeously tinted foliage, dyed in all the prismatic hues – all being so emblematic of the evening tide of human life.  Not yet was he to hear the welcome summons, " Come up higher," for God still had a work for him to do. After a year of treatment by the eminent Dr. Tyoon, lately deceased, of Philadelphia, he partially regained his health-engaging in the drug business at Tioga in partnership with Dr. H. H, Borden.  In 1890 he came to Elkland, opening a drugstore in company with his son. Retaining many of the characteristics of the " Friends," his manner of life was simple and unostentatious. His creed was "The fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.”  His Christian charity may be best expressed by a passage of scripture he so often quoted:  “If a man be overtaken in a fault, restore such as one in meekness of spirit, considering lest thou thyself be tempted”.  He is survived by his devoted widow and two loving, grief-stricken children—Roy, who was his partner in business, Clara, wife of J. Price VaSey, a veterinarian in Jenkintown, a suburb of Philadelphia.  With a saddened, but submissive spirit, we are about to consign the dearly loved form back to mother Nature — above whose mound the gleaming stars shall stand sentinels and the autumnal leaves weave a winding sheet, and birds slog their requiem. His loyal, tender, loving spirit we submit onto the care of Him " who gives his angels charge over those who sleep, and He, Himself watchesover those who wake”.

After an extended but courageous battle with Spinocerebellar Ataxia and Cancer, lifetime Wellsboro resident, John E. Wilcox "Jack" "Ears", age 84, became a Yankee Fan in Heaven on Easter Sunday, April 8th, at his home. Jack was born on July 14, 1922, to the Late Claude and Martha Miller Wilcox. He was an Army Veteran of World War II, a member of the 10th Armoured Division. He was the husband of the late Lois Stilwell Wilcox who predeceased him on November 22, 1986. The loving and supportive family that survive are his daughter, Susan Bronson of Wellsboro and her family, Dr's Shane and Tamara Bronson and daughter, Ella of Harrisburg, PA; Alison, Erik, Payton and MacKenna Gundersen of Wellsboro; son, Scott and his family, Suzanne Wilcox of Wellsboro, Brian Wilcox and Kristin Wilcox of Lancaster, PA; son, Terry and his family, Pat and Kyle Wilcox of Wellsboro; siblings, Marie Hubba of Wellsboro, Richard Wilcox of Pinellas Park, FL.

Predeceased by sisters-in-law, Winifred Wilcox, Clarice Evans and Mary Ann Stilwell, and brothers-in-law, John Hubba and Stuart Woodson.

He was inducted into the Tioga County Sports Hall of Fame in May of 2003 for his contribution as a Coach and Sports Contributor for the Wellsboro Gazette and the Elmira Star-Gazette. In the prime of his life Jack coached and umpired Little League Baseball, Small Fry Football and refereed High School Basketball. All that knew him on the sidelines knew he'd NEVER walk away from a heated discussion. He was also a volunteer member of the Wellsboro Fire and Ambulance Assoc. In the years following the diagnosis of Ataxia, Jack passed his time by his interest in horticulture, caning chairs, and taking trips around the neighborhood on his riding lawn mower. He loved long rides in the canyon and reminiscing. For many years, Jack was employed by Garrison's Men Shop and the United States Postal Service, until his disability made it too difficult to work.
