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.

Vincent HOGABOOM also a young man not past the meridian of his life and in the full vigor of manhood had come to this *place recently, and had succeeded in winning the esteem of those with whom he came in contact. During his short residence here he had found many friends and not an enemy. None knew his so well as myself. He was not without faults, but his virtues were largely in excess-so much that we hardly saw a fault. Honest, sober, industrious, generous to a fault, a dutiful son, a kind brother, an indulgent father and affectionate husband, he leaves a wife and one child, a bright little fellow of four years, who were as the apple of his eye. They deserve and have the sympathy of every one in the dreadful affliction. His and her friends live in Northern Pennsylvania and Southern New York, with the exception of a brother of his who lives here. The remains were temporarily deposited here.
**from the Angelica, Shawano County, Wisc. newspaper.
Vincent HOGABOOM was killed in a horrific logging related accident at the sawmill where he was working. Several other people were killed or seriously injured.
