Jobs Corners Cemetery Listing 1982 

Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008 
Do You Know that you can search just theObituaries 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.

GARRISON, FOSTER (SRGP 04607)
 Foster Garrison was born in Jackson township, Nov. 30, 1835.  On a point of what is called Pumpkin Hill.  At the age of 26 years he married Charlotte R. Pellet; but before a year had passed the excitement of war was so great that his heart could not withstand its yearnings, and loyal to his country he enlisted to its call for volunteers in September, 1862, in the 16th cavalry.  He served there nearly three years; was engaged in several battles or skirmishes, and was a brave and true soldier. After his return home he embraced religion and united with the Baptist church of South Creek in 1868.  In 1865 after his return from the service, he bought a farm in the township of Wells.  Here with his wife he entered upon the duties of a farmer, tilling the soil and caring for his family which, consisted of his wife and two children, Ottie Carl and George E.  There he lived a prosperous life until June 8, 1869 his wife died, and he was left to care for his children alone.  This he could not do and in June 1870 he was again married to Melvina H. Queal of Wells.  Three children were born to them, Herman D. Henry F., and Burke E. 
 In 1881 he bought a farm in Sullivan known as the Hodge farm.  He and his wife united with the Elk Run ME church, where they walked hand in hand in the Master’s vineyard, toiling not for the riches of earth, but for the treasures of heaven.  For twenty years or more he bore the heat and burden of farm life.  He reared up his boys and saw them all married to good and noble wives.  He was a devoted father and husband  (piece missing).  For a number of years Mr. Garrison worked under failing health and finally gave up farming entirely.  In 1904 he left the farm and moved to Mansfield where he lived only a few months until he died Nov. 5, 1904.  He joined the ME church in Mansfield by letter, and though not able to attend many of its means of grace, his heart and prayers were ever with the church he so much loved.  He was an earnest, thoughtful Christian man, ever loyal and true to the church he served for many years.  His words of kindness and acts of love to pastors and their families, to neighbors and friends or anyone whom he had an opportunity to help in any way, showed him to be a noble Christian man.  As his health failed he relied more and more upon the work Jesus Christ had done for him.  His prayers were for the happiness of his loved ones, whom he knew he must soon leave.  His last days were spent with his dear ones who tenderly cared for him, and when his last moments came, he passed quietly from earth to dwell with Christ.  The funeral services were held at Jobs Corners and were conducted by Rev. D. Stoker, W. H. Yard, of Horseheads, and Rev. Paul Smith.  His remains were laid at rest in the cemetery at that place.
 
GARRISON, GEORGE E. [SRGP 04936]

Garrison, aged 39 years, diedat his home on Bailey creek, Rutland township, on Wednesday, April 24, 1907, after a long illness.  He leaves to mourn their loss a wife and two children—Louise, aged 10 years; Roland, aged 15; a stepmother, Mrs. Foster Garrison, of Mansfield; three brothers—Herman, of Austinville; Harry, of Rutland, and Burke, of Rochester, NY., and many other relatives and a host of friends, as he was a an of kindly disposition, who won to himself many friends.  He loved his family, and the same was given in return to him.  He was a kind, generous husband and father, a good, obliging neighbor, and a capable business man.  Why stricken down and removed from his family while just in the prime of life, we cannot say, and we extend our sympathy to the family in their sad bereavement, and offer the hand of assistance.  The funeral was held from the home on Friday at 1 p.m., and was largely attended.  The Rev.
