Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008 Description: Description: Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\newsline.gif

Description: Description: Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\bluehunt.jpg

Do You Knowthat 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.

 

SRGP ID Added in parentheses by Joyce M .Tice if included in her Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. If you are researching or descended from any of those so designated, it is requested that you share your research with Joycs's SRGP if you have not already done so. That is the price I ask for making this site available. It is your opportunity to share in the cost of creating this site and reward Joyce just a tad for making this enormous body of resource available to you. It is a way to pay your dues in a small way for use of this site. Please reference the SRGP ID and the page you found this on the site, when you write to me. For women listed under a married alias, I have provided her real name, if I know it.

FISH - William Fish Killed - Millerton Men in Auto Wreck at Elmira Last Week - Returning from Sayre, where they had purchased food and other things for a Christmas celebration, a Ford touring car carrying William Fish, S.G. Hummel, Charles Hummel, all of Millerton, and another man, whose name is not known to the authorities, left the Lowman highway, near Sullivan's monument, at 3:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and dropped over a 10 foot embankment, says the Star-Gazette. As the machine turned turtle at the foot of the embankment, Mr. Fish was pinned under the car. The other occupants were thrown from their seats. Mr. Fish was injured seriously and died shortly after he had been taken to the Arnot-Ogden hospital. The other members of the party were shaken up badly, but were able to proceed to their homes after Mr. Fish had been removed to the hospital. A bad turn in the highway, and a slippery road are given as the cause of the accident. It is stated that the car was proceeding toward Elmira at a moderate rate of speed. Just north of the road, leading to the monument, the highway makes an abrupt curve, and at this curve is a steep embankment. It was at this point that the machine skidded and fell with a crash into the field below. The other men in the car rendered Mr. Fish all the assistance possible. Mr. Fish was found in an unconscious condition. The death certificate files with City Registrar Sellen, states that death was due to contusions and concussion of the brain. The body was removed to Millerton; burial at Jackson Center. Sheriff Hoke investigated the accident. He stated that after a careful search he had been unable to find the slightest evidence of any liquor having been in the car or on the men. The car is damaged badly. Another automobile appeared shortly after the accident and endeavored to pull the Ford back on the highway. After several unsuccessful attempts to raise the machine the plan was abandoned. - Wellsboro Agitator, January 1, 1918, p.1
