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.

 

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.

JOHNSON, Kate [SRGP 65517] A.K.A. Husted - Also Elizabeth "Bess" Husted
Wellsboro Gazette, August 7, 1924
Five Killed in Auto Crash
Mansfield People Lose Lives When Car Goes Over High Bank
Four persons were killed and one so badly injured that she died within an hour when a Ford car in which the party was traveling plunged over a 35 foot embankment near Phillips Station last Friday evening, landing in a tangled wreckage on the tracks of the B. & S. railroad. The dead, all residents of Mansfield are: Orlo D. Patterson, aged 33, his wife [Ethel], aged 30 and their daughter, Marjorie, aged nine years; Mrs. W.D. [Kate] Husted, 63, and her daughter, Elizabeth [Husted], aged 30. The Patterson child; suffering from internal injuries, lived a half hour after the accident while her mother died at the Westfield Hospital at 8:15 o’clock. The others were killed almost instantly. Mr. Patterson, who was a salesman for auto accessories, had been on a trip with the other members of the party as his guests, and was returning from Knoxville when it is believed the radius rod on the car  on the car broke and caused the machine to dash down the embankment onto the B. & S. tracks below. It is said that as the car went through Knoxville residents of the town noticed that the iron rod was dragging and tried to catch the driver’s attention but were unable to do so. While this explanation is generally accepted as the cause of the deplorable accident, still the immediate details which caused the car to take the awful plunge will never be known, as all the persons who were in it died without making any statement.  Mr. Patterson, who was formerly a barber in Elmira, had lived in Mansfield for about two years where he was engaged in the same business but later when his health failed he took up the line in which he was engaged at the time he was killed. He was a son of Mrs. Glenn V. Davidson, of Elmira, and is survived by one half-sister, Mrs. George Robenold also of that city.  Mrs. Husted had been an esteemed resident of Mansfield for many years and was highly regarded by an extensive circle of friends and acquaintances all of whom mourn her untimely passing. She was the widow of the late W.D. Husted who was prominently identified with the banking business in Mansfield for over a quarter of a century. He died about two years ago. Mr. & Mrs. Patterson were popular in the younger circles of Elmira and Mansfield to whom their sudden passing came as a distinct shock. When the trip on Friday was decided upon Mr. & Mrs. Patterson planned to take with them another daughter, Harriet, aged 12 years, but for some reason she was not included in the party and is therefore left to mourn the death of father, mother and sister. Mrs. Husted is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Ford Miller, of Millerton, and a son, Ray, of Williamsport. The funeral of Mr. & Mrs. Patterson and the daughter, Marjorie, was held in Elmira their former home on Sunday and the remains were placed in a receiving vault in Woodlawn cemetery. A double funeral was held at Mansfield Monday afternoon for Mrs. Husted and her daughter, Miss Elizabeth; Rev. Belknap, Dean of the Mansfield Normal officiating;  burial in Mansfield [Oakwood] cemetery.

JONES, Death of Owen Jones [SRGP 88221]  - There has been no death in this vicinity among the younger members of the male population for many years that has created a more universal feeling of sorrow than the death of Owen Jones on Friday morning, March 9. He had lived to reach his majority, and was anticipating much for the future, when he was so suddenly stricken with death and conveyed to his lifelong home in full confidence of his religious convictions, which he had accepted about eight years ago; he being a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. The funeral was held at the Methodist Episcopal church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, and I long before the body reached the church a large crowd had assembled to witness the last sad rites over the body of their young friend and townsman. The choir was composed of a quintette o young men, friends of the deceased, who rendered very fine music for the occasion. The Rev. W. G. Hull, who officiated, preached an impressive and appropriate sermon, and after the congregation had viewed the remains the body was conveyed to its last resting place in Oakwood cemetery. A father, mother and two brothers are left to mourn the loss of a son and brother, but with happy consolation he has gone to a better home. The subject of the above notice was a young man of marked business ability. At the age of 21 he was in possession of sufficient means to extensively enlarge and increase his business that would in a few years place him on a financial footing with the best business men of our time. For many years he has displayed a business tact that had won for him the admiration and esteem of the community. He was social with all he came in contact with, and left a pleasing impression with all newly made acquaintances. He had planned for a course in the Normal school in the near future, and to be taken away right in the sunshine of life can only be explained by Him who beckons you to meet Him at the throne. [1879-1900]
