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.

WHITING, Stephen Jay – Another of Our Soldier Boys Met Death by Accident – Stephen Jay Whiting arrived in New York from overseas, where he was in active service for 15 months; was in training six months before crossing.  He was wounded in the battle of Argonne Forest, once in the left arm by a bullet which was not extracted for nine days, and again by shrapnel in the left leg.  He was in the hospital six weeks.  He went to the home of his sisters in Eureka, Michigan, where he remained three weeks, then came East to see his father, J.R. Whiting, and grandfather, D.R. Whiting, the only living relatives in this part of the country, having never before seen his grandfather, who is 94 years of age.  His father met him in Buffalo, Saturday, June 14.  After Visiting Niagara Falls and other places for a couple of days, they came to Middlebury, where Grandfather Whiting makes his home.  They arrived in Middlebury Monday and the neighbors did everything to make the boy’s visit seem homelike after his travels.  One of the pastimes was bathing in a nearby stream.  Suggestion was made that the crowd go to the stream.  They all went into the water, and those coming out first saw signs of a storm, and told the rest to come out at once.  Part of the crowd came to the house, but had barely reached the house when they heard screams and realized something was wrong.  They were all out of the water but Whiting.  Just then there was a flash of lightning, followed by another, and the boy called for help when he sank from sight.  He never came up and no bubbles came to the surface.  At that place there is a hole 16 feet deep.  His father called “come this way, Jay”, but there was no sign of recognition on his face as he sank from sight.  The witnesses believe that lightning was the cause of death and that life was extinct shortly after he called for help.  He passed through battles, came home to see his people, then passed on to God, “who doeth all things well”.  He was born in Hamilton township, Gratiot county, Michigan, April 29, 1895, and died June 19, 1919, aged 24 years.  He was converted eight years ago, joined the Evangelical church, and in his pocket was found a sermon entitled, “What Is Your Confidence?” which speaks of his thoughts and the trend of his mind.   Wellsboro Agitator, 25 June 1919.
