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.

HULSLANDER - (SRGP 07904) Mrs. Nellie
PETER HULSLANDER. (SRGP 03765)
Peter Hulslander was born in Orange County, N.Y., April 17,
1813, and died in Sullivan, Tioga County PA., March 18, 1891. He was
the son of Jacob and Elizabeth Hulslander, and removed with his parents at
the age of three years to Dryden, Tompkins county, N.Y., from there to
Columbia, Bradford county, Pa, and from there in the year 1830, to his late
residence in Sullivan. His father commenced to hew out a home in the
then solid wilderness of Sullivan township, but lived only about three years
after settling at this place. Peter married Amanda Soper on the 16th of
October, 1834. She was a woman of sterling worth and a helpmate indeed.
They had ten children born to them, nine of whom are living. Their
names are Elijah Hulslander, of Austinville, Pa.; Mary Benedict, of East
Charleston, Pa.; Ellen Benedict, of Austinville, Pa.; George Hulslander, of
Boston, Mass.; Charles Hulslander, who lives on the old farm in Sullivan;
Melinda Ferguson, of Liberty, Pa.; Winfield Hulslander, of Scranton,
Pa. (newspaper torn and lost at this point, continues...)
The injury to Peter's face was thought to be slight at
the time, but it developed later into a running sore that could not be healed,
and was the indirect cause of his death. He came from a race of brave, intelligent
and hardy pioneers, and brought with him the frugal habits and persevering
energy of the Orange county people, and made the wilderness resound with the
echoes of his well directed blows. It was no easy matter for him to hew
out a home in the wilderness. A long, hard struggle was before him, but
he never faltered, nor hesitated for a moment. It had to be done, and it
He was an intelligent, though un-educated man, so far as book learning goes to make up an education. He was a skilled veterinarian and was consulted by people for treatment of the different diseases of the horse far and near. His greatest fault was that he was too generous with people, and so lost more in his business than he received. He never made any pretensions in the line of experimental Christianity. He was baptized by his parents when he was eight days old and brought up a strict Dutch Presbyterian, but he was in belief a Universalist. He believed Christ came into the world, and died that sinners might be saved. His admiration of true Christian worth was great, as shown by his daily life. With his peculiar religious views, and his criticisms, often harsh, there was plainly to be seen by the causual (1) observer a deep under-current of reverence and belief in God and the bible.
He was loved by his children and respected by his neighbors. He was nearly always found on the right side of every question; in politics he was an uncompromising republican.

William H. Hulslander [SRGP 04102]
In Sullivan, at his father’s residence, on the 14th inst., William H. Hulslander, (late private in Co. C, 50th Regt. N. Y. S. Vol.), aged 25 years, and 17 days. William feeling that it was his duty to lend a helping hand to his country in its strife with traitors, volunteered in September, 1861. While on the Peninsula before Richmond disease came upon him, after causing months of suffering has laid him low. Only four days before his death he was brought home as he said “to die.” On his way home he said to his father who was with him, “save me till I get home for if I can only get there and see the loved ones I left behind I shall be content.” Fortunately his wish was granted, and he breathed his last surrounded by those he loved so well. A young man of sterling worth, with high moral perceptions, he was beloved by all who knew him. (Wednesday, March 25, 1863, The Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
