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.

 Mrs. Jeannette C. Spong, 91-year-old resident of RD#1, Morris, who died Monday, Jan. 18, was a member of the Blackwell United Methodist Church all her life.  Born Nov. 30, 1896 in Blackwell, she was the daughter of James and Etta Ayers Campbell.  She served as church organist until her health prevented her from doing so.  The antique pump organ still graces the church. Mrs. Spong had many memories of how beautiful the church was on Children's Day, when the children themselves would decorate with wild flowers and ferns. At Christmas time, the church was decorated by adults with pines and a big red paper bell.  There was a Christmas tree so large that its branches could hold the presents. This church was built in 1892.  The land was given by the Lattimer family with the stipulation that a place of worship be built on it.  If the church was ever sold for any other purpose, the land is to be returned to the heirs. In 1933, the basement, which is not a finished room, was built by the W.P.A.  It was used for picnic suppers, mostly in the summertime. The edifice stands as a monument to the love of fellow man which Christianity stands for. Although the membership has dwindled from approximately 50-75 to five or six, Mrs. Spong was a beautiful example of the people who have kept this church alive these many years. Her dedication to the church played an important role in her life.  Her strength of character and her faith will forever serve as an inspiration to those who knew and loved her. A graduate of Mansfield Normal School in 1924, she taught in Blackwell and Morris for 38 years. She was a member of the Blackwell United Methodist Church and the Mary Wells Chapter #452 OES, Wellsboro.  Surviving are a son, Herman, of Wellsboro; two grandsons; and one great-grandchild.  Friends may call at today, Jan. 20, from 7 to 9 pm at the Tussey-Mosher Funeral Home in Wellsboro.  A funeral service will be held Thursday, Jan. 21, at 10 am at the funeral home.  The Rev. Daniel H. Jordan will officiate.  Burial will be made in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.  The family will provide the flowers.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Green Free Library, Wellsboro.

FEENEY Mary
WOMAN KILLED NEAR MORRIS
Accidental Discharge of Shotgun Fatally Wounded Mrs. Kenneth Blackwell
Mrs. Mary Blackwell (Mary  Feeney) Aged 26 years, wife of Kenneth Blackwell, of Endicott, N. Y., formerly of Morris, was almost instantly killed Saturday morning 8 November 1922 about 10 o'clock by the accidental discharge of a shotgun in the bands of her husband. Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell were enjoying a vacation with relatives in Morris and vicinity and were out hunting near Dixie Run when the accident happened. Mrs. Blackwell was using a gun belonging to her brother-in-law, which had a safety device different from her own gun, but she used the borrowed gun because it was lighter. Being an expert sportswoman, she was interested in the mechanism of guns and asked her husband if his gun's safety catch was like the one on the gun she was using. He replied that it was slightly different and showed her the difference.  She took her husband's gun and worked the "safety," saying she understood it, as she handed it back. It is supposed that she didn't push the "safety" entirely back in place for not long afterward as Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell were climbing over a brush pile, Mrs. Blackwell being ahead, the gun accidentally discharged, the shot striking Mrs. Blackwell in the back at close range and inflicting a terrible wound through the lungs. She lived only a few moments. Mr. Blackwell immediately rushed, with his wife in his arms to his car, some distance away, and in speeding for help ran off a curve and into a field, where the car was stuck in the soft ground. Being unable to get the car out on its own power, he seized the back end of the Buick six, and being a strong man, and his natural strength being augmented by frenzy over the tragedy, he lifted the rear end of the car bodily to solid ground and was then able to proceed to the main road.  He reached the main road just as E. A. VanValkenburg, of Philadelphia, and his son-in-law, C. E. Bennett, of Wellsboro, came along in Mr. Bennett's car on their  way to Wellsboro from Williamsport. Mr. VanValkenburg went with Mr. Blackwell to the Blackwell home and rendered what assistance he could while Mr. Bennett rushed on to Morris and took Dr. R. F. Robinson to the Blackwell home. Coroner William F. White and District Attorney Charles M. Elliott were also on the scene as soon as possible and made a thorough investigation, an inquest being | deemed unnecessary. At the scene of the accident a broken twig was found, which, it is believed, caught the trigger of the gun and discharged it. Mrs. Blackwell was a member of the Presbyterian church of Endicott, N. Y., and' of the Eastern Star. She was a most estimable young woman and her death is mourned by a host of friends. She is survived by her husband, by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Feeney, of Endicott, N. Y., formerly of Morris; three sisters and two brothers  Emily, wife of Lyman Sanders, of Johnson City; Ora, wife of Earl Bendle; Lola, Charles and Elwood Feeney, all of Endicott. The funeral was held Monday afternoon at two o'clock at the Mt. Pleasant M. E. church, Rev. Mr. Metzger officiating; interment in the Mt. Pleasant cemetery. A large number of Eastern Star members and other friends from Endicott, about 25 automobile loads, attended the funeral.
