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.

Vanduren, whose letter to the bereaved wife which is before us, "bravely fighting for his country and the restoration of order.

CARL – Nellie Keeney – The home of Herman Keeney is sadly afflicted. Mrs. Keeney, after an illness of only about a week, died last week Monday (6 May 1901).

Mrs. Keeney’s maiden name was Nellie Carl, and she was a daughter of Abram Carl. She had been in poor health for a number of years, although able to be around and oversee her work. She was a very quiet, amiable woman, and to know her was to love her. She had been a faithful and devoted member of the M.E. Church for a number of years and was also very devoted to her family. She leaves a husband and eight children, the youngest only a year old; an aged mother and one brother. The love and esteem in which the deceased was held was made manifest by the tributes of flowers at the funeral. Mr. Keeney was very sick at the time of his wife’s death and was unable to attend the funeral. He is somewhat better at this writing, although not out of danger. One of the children is also in a critical condition. It seems as if the hand of affliction had been laid very heavily upon this once happy home, but let us look up through it all and trust Him who doeth all things well. – Wellsboro Gazette, 17 May 1901, p.8
