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.

She pushed the little son away and ran outside to the driveway and threw herself into a mudhole filled with water from the recent heavy rain. Dewey LaPoint noticed the flames in the house and ran in and extinguished them, and Mrs. Davis was then found standing in the mudhole with her clothing burned away. She displayed wonderful nerve and walked into the house stating: "I am badly burned, but get me to the hospital and I will be all right in a few days." While a crowd had gathered, in her fatal condition she exhibited wonderful nerve and expressed it as above stated to those about it. She was wrapped up and hurried by automobile to the Blossburg hospital where everything was done for her, but no encouragement was given her family and friends for her recovery, however she insisted that she would be out in a few days. A change came over her about 5 o'clock Tuesday morning and she died at 6:10. The body was brought to the home at Little Marsh Tuesday noon and the funeral services will be held in the Little Marsh M. E. church Friday of this week at 1 o'clock P.M., and the interment will be in the Keeneyville cemetery. Mrs. Davis was formerly Ruth J. Merrick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. H.
