Do You Knowthat you can search just the Obituarieson 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.

 

SRGP ID Added in parentheses by Joyce M .Tice if included in her Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. If you are researching or descended from any of those so designated, it is requested that you share your research with Joyce's SRGP if you have not already done so. That is the price I ask for making this site available. It is your opportunity to share in the cost of creating this site and reward Joyce just a tad for making this enormous body of resource available to you. It is a way to pay your dues in a small way for use of this site. Please reference the SRGP ID and the page you found this on the site, when you write to me. For women listed under a married alias, I have provided her real name, if I know it.

HUSTED - Hurled Into Tioga River Saturday Night when Horse Ran Away - W.D. Husted Drowned 


Wilmot D. Husted, [SRGP 65516] aged 61, a prominent citizen of Mansfield, and well-known throughout Tioga county, was found dead in the Tioga river at the Richards bridge, Saturday night about 10 o'clock. Mr. Husted had been in Covington on business and from that place went up the Elk Run road to the Francis Kelley farm, leaving there about 6:30 p.m. He was last seen alive a few minutes later by Mr. McIntosh, Mr. Husted then driving toward the Richards bridge, which crosses the Tioga river about four miles south of Mansfield. About 7:30 o'clock Mr. & Mrs. A.H. Vosburgh, Mr. & Mrs. Shaw and Mr. Beach, all of Mansfield, on their way home from Roaring Branch, overtook Mr. Husted's horse and buggy on the macadam road a short distance north of the Richards bridge. They noticed that one wheel was missing from the buggy and stopping to investigate, found the buggy empty. The horse was bleeding from a severe cut. They looked for the owner of the rig for a time, but found nobody, and then went to Covington to get a veterinary to attend to the horse's wounds. On their return they made a further search, being joined by people of the neighborhood. After an hour or more they found some of Mr. Husted's insurance papers and  not long afterward Mr. Husted's lifeless body was found in the shallow water just below the bridge, his derby hat being jammed down over his head and broken in several places. The wheel of the buggy came off a short distance from the bridge and marks of the axle, bouncing along the road and across the bridge, indicate that the horse was frightened and ran away. When the bridge was reached it is supposed that the axle struck the girder or caught on the planks and the impact hurled Mr. Husted into the river. He was probably stunned by the fall or by striking the bridge truss and drowned in the shallow stream while unconscious.
