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

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

He says that Mr. Stephen Johns was riding with Ellis, and they had been to Roseville for a pint of alcohol and had been drinking. They started for home, and on the way attempted to pass a lumber wagon loaded with potatoes. Both parties were running their horses, and as they passed the wagon the wheels caught and broke the forward wheel of the buggy. Ellis fell out; Johns also fell out, but was not hurt. Johns called for help, and Orren Furman, who lived near, responded and found Ellis still breathing, but he died immediately after being carried into the house. Daniel Watson, Esq., was summoned, and the following persons acted at jurors at the inquest: Dr. Nye, Warren Rose, Halsey Updike, Leon Hall, Emmet Baker, V.H. Lombard, Lafayette Stevens. The jury rendered a verdict that he came to his death by falling from a wagon and dislocating his neck; cause, liquor. - Wellsboro Agitator, October 16, 1883, p.3

MISS LEPHA M. KINGSLEY (SRGP 18826) After weeks and months of patient suffering and waiting, and prayers that she might find relief in death from her dread disease, the spirit of Miss Lepha Kingsley, of Painter Run, mounted on high at 10 o’clock Sunday morning, May 24, and joined the heavenly host in realms beyond the sky. Her age was 21 years 8 months 24 days. She was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Kingsley, who with one brother, Clarence, are left to mourn the loss. Her whole youth gave rare promise of a beautiful womanly development. But it was not so to be. A life of singular promise is thus early given a larger, higher scope for growth and development. During the Wilson revival in Mansfield a few years ago, Lepha was converted and shortly afterward joined the Bailey Creek Baptist Church and was a consistent member of the same. During her illness she often expressed herself as ready to leave this world and before the final change came gave her friends the assurance that all was well. Her spirit is at rest, and those who loved the girl may bear their bereavement in memory without grief. The school career of the unfortunate young girl was extraordinarily bright and promising, but tinged with sadness during the latter years as she was obliged to give up her studies. During her school course she won and retained the love and respect of both teachers and pupils by the painstaking way in which she performed her duties, and by her uniform cheerfulness and courtesy. Her friends did all in their power to lighten her suffering and stay the progress of her disease but all to no avail. The funeral was very largely attended at her home at 2 o’clock Tuesday afternoon, May 26, 1896, and was conducted by Rev. Mr. Sitzer, who spoke words of wisdom and comfort. The floral offerings were very beautiful and in great profusion. The bearers were selected from among her school friends. Interment took place at Lawrence Corners Cemetery, whither the remains were followed by a large concourse of friends.

LAWRENCE, Asenath (SRGP 52607 ) --LONGWELL.—In Rutland, PA, January 29, 1890, of paralysis, Asenath Longwell, wife of Samuel Longwell, aged 64 years.

LAWRENCE, FRANK M. (SRGP 18226)
 Frank M. Lawrence was born in the township of Rutland, Tioga county, Pa., November 21, 1855, and departed this live December 4, 1904, at the place of his birth.  He was the son of Norris and Belnette Lawrence, who a few years ago preceded him to the spirit world.  Mr. Lawrence was married by the Rev. John Vankirk, at Roseville, Pa., to Miss Frances E. Brace, September 2, 1876.  To this union was born one daughter, Lillian, who has reached the age of womanhood.  He was an energetic and successful farmer, owning the homestead at Lawrence Corners, where he spent his whole life.  He was a highly respected citizen, obliging neighbor, kind and indulgent father, and a faithful husband.  He was held in much esteem in the township in which he lived, where he held the office of School Director a number of terms, which office he occupied at the time of his death, and was the Secretary of the Board.  He was always interested in all that goes to promote honorable citizenship, and the public good.  His home was a welcome place to ministers of the gospel, where greatest respect was always shown and although not a professed Christian, he respected those who were.  He was ever ready to lend a helping hand in time of sickness, and will be greatly missed in the exercise of this kindly office.  During the sickness which resulted in his death, he expressed his faith in the religion of the Bible, and when the writer of this sketch quoted those passages pertaining to God’s willingness to receive all who comes to Him through the atonement of his Son, he said he believed it.  He said to his wife a few days before his departure:  “Christ restoreth my soul”, and to his brother Charles he said: “The old way to heaven is the right way for me, and I have no faith in spiritualism.”  We have known him many years, being closely associated with him by matrimonial relations, having married sisters.  We have always sustained the most friendly relations, having found him a true friend and an obliging and accommodating relative.  He leaves besides his wife and daughter, one brother, Charles, and a large number of distant relatives.  The very large concourse of friends who attended his funeral, which was held at his residence, December 6, the Rev. Paul Smith, assisted by Rev. H. L. Barnes, officiating, bespeaks the high esteem in which he was held.
