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.

District Attorney Charles M Elliott, Sheriff Husted and State Policeman E, H. Cameron went to Lawrenceville and made, a thorough investigation of the affair, examined all witnesses and found that all the facts pointed to accidental death.

THE LATE GALUSHA GROW CLOSE

In the space of little more than half a year, death removed from this world of the living two people whose influence among those who were privileged to know them, will continue so long as memory remains. On January 7, 1859, there was born to Reuben and Harriet (Lockwood) Close, of Chatham Twp, Tioga Co., PA., a son who was given the name, Galusha Grow, but was always known as Grow Close. A few months later, May 26, and in the adjoining township of Farmington was born the little girl whose life was to be so closely united with his for over 50 years. She was the daughter of Charles and Lucretia (Babcock) Weeks, and received the name of Ruie, a melodious variation of the Biblical name Zeruah. Both attended the district schools but as Charles Weeks entered the ministry of the Methodist church when Ruie was 6 yrs. old, she became acquainted with several school systems on the various charges to which her father was appointed. As they grew older, both young people wished to improve their talents beyond the opportunity given by the local schools, and Grow attended a business college at Mansfield, and Ruie went to Mansfield, then called a normal school, for a year or two. In the early 1880's Ruie Weeks went to teach the school in the Close district in Chatham. There the young couple met and were so strongly attracted by the sterling character, each of the other, that it was not long before they decided to continue life's journey together. They were married March 4, 1885, at the home of the bride's sister and brother-in-law, Mr. & Mrs. C. D. Northrop, in Troupsburg Twp, NY, The wedding ceremony was solemnized by Rev. Charles Weeks, and the young couple went to live on the Weeks farm in Farmington in the old house, part a log structure, where Ruie was born. There they made their home for 5 years, and in the spring of 1890 bought the farm in Lawrence Twp where the greater part of their 55 years together was spent. In the community, they were leaders in every good word and work. As superintendent of the Sunday School, class leader and member of the official board, Grow Close was closely identified with the church at Tompkins. When they moved to the twp., services were held in the school house, and the present attractive white church building that stands near the school grounds is to a great extent a monument to the devotion and sacrifice of this couple. Both were teachers in the church school for many years, Mrs. Close was active in the Ladies Aid Society and they were generous contributors to every call of the many branches of church work, local, national and international.   Lawrenceville cemetery

COLEGROVE Henry B
Wellsboro Agitator, Tioga, PA-- Wednesday, December 19, 1906
Mr. Henry B. Colegrove, aged 74, a highly esteemed resident of Lawrence township, died suddenly about 2 a.m. on Friday at his home at Tompkins, about 3 miles from Lawrenceville. He was for many years engaged in the lumber business and served 2 terms as County Commissioner, from January 1st, 1897 to January 1st, 1903. He was a man of the strictest integrity and enjoyed the respent and esteem of all who knew him.  Mr. Colegrove was born at Troupsburg, NY, April 25, 1832.  When he was 2 years old, his parents removed to Cortland County, NY and five years later they settled in Lawrence township, where Mr. Colegrove had since resided.  He commenced lumbering in the early days and ran log rafts down the Cowanesque River to Painted Post, NY for many years. He served with great credit during the Civil War in a New York state regiment and was present at the surrender of Lee at Appomattox. Soon after the war he formed a partnership with Mr. C S Mather in the lumber business, the firm of Mather & Colegrove being for many years a prominent one in this region. Mr. Colegrove was one of the leading citizens of Lawrence township and always took an active interest in public affairs. He held many township offices and was always public spirited and progressive. He was twice married; his second wife, one son, Delos of Tompkins, and one daughter, Mrs. Charles Stage of Lawrenceville survive him.  Funeral services were held on Monday and were largely attended. Phil Holland Post, of Lawrenceville, conducted the services at the grave and Rev. Henry Goodrich of Nelson preached the funeral sermon.  Many Wellsboro people attended the funeral.

COLEGROVE Sarah L
LAWRENCEVILLE, March 27,1880 - Last Tuesday the people of Lawrenceville were thrown into great excitement by a double tragedy. Mr. Sidney Green, a man 28 years of age, living two miles west of this village on the river road leading to Nelson, on the south side of the river, shot and killed his wife, Sarah, woman 23 years of age and daughter of Mr. H. B. Colgrove.  The crime was committed about 5 o'clock in the afternoon at the house of Mr. John Nelson, who lives at the foot of Slawson hill and near the residence of Mr. Colgrove, the father of the murdered woman. Soon after killing his wife Green put an end to his own life by shooting himself in the head.  It appears as near as I can learn that Mrs. Green ran away from home six years ago to marry Green, being helped from her father's house by one Emery Colgrove, her cousin. She lived with her husband only two or three weeks, when for some cause she left him and went West with this cousin Emery. It is said she returned here four years ago and met Mr. Green once or twice during that visit, but returned to her Western home in a short time.  She came home again to her father's on the 9th instant, and Mr. Green had an interview with her last Tuesday at Mr. Nelson's house, when he shot her through the breast.  She turned and ran into the road and fell down and Green followed her and shot her twice through the head one ball striking her at the left side of the nose about an inch below the eye, and the other a little to the right of the first, at the base of the nose. Either of these wounds would have produced death, and from the effects of all three of them, Mrs. Green died almost instantly.  Green fled from the scene of his crime in the direction of Lawrenceville, and when about 25 rods from his victim he was met by her father, Mr. Colgrove, and Mr. William Davis. He then deliberately placed the revolver he had used to shoot his wife  at his own temple and sent a bullet through his brain. The shot passed in the right temple and lodged in the brain, causing death within an hour.  Mrs. Green's body was removed to her father's house and that of Green was taken to the residence of Mr. Harris, in this village. A Coroner's jury was called and inquest was held, the verdicts being that Mrs. Sarah Green came to her death by a pistol shot fired by Mr. Sidney Green, and that Mr. Sidney Green met his death from a pistol shot discharged by his own hand.  Mrs. Green leaves two children.  Mr. Emery Colgrove was summoned by telegraph to attend the funeral of Mrs. Green, which takes place today at eleven o'clock a.m.
