Do You Knowthat 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.

Campbell (SRGP 73123)


Sunday, March 7, 1909, while the sun was shining bright and radiant and the birds were singing in the trees near her home in Mansfield, Pa., there passed from this life into the life eternal, Mrs. Olive A. Campbell, the beloved wife of Isaac Campbell and the mother of the following children: Mrs. Emma Phillips, Mrs. Goldie Peterson, Mrs. Ollie Moran, all of Elmira, N.Y. ; John and Ernest and daughter Ava, of Mansfield. Her childhood days were spent in the country, her parents being well to do farmers. She was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Phillips, who had a large family of children, and attended the Mansfield State Normal when there was but one building on the grounds. There she fitted herself for a teacher, beginning her duties when but 16 years of age.

 She was a true woman and stood for the highest and best things in her home and in society. A member of the Universalist church, she ever loved its noble faith and sought to rear her children in Gospel truth and love. Never was there a more devoted or more unselfish wife and mother, and her prayers were strong and fervent for their good and blessing. The last year of her life she was greatly afflicted with cancer. This she had successfully removed in Elmira, but on returning home a disease of longer standing became emphasized and suddenly carried her away. Just before her departure, the sweetest, most ineffable smile illumined her features, transforming them with the beauty of the unseen, and its immortal vigor, so that all who saw her said “How beautiful in death she is,” Loving hands dressed her in a pure white robe for her casket, which remained open at the funeral, with the many very beautiful floral offerings placed all around her - a lovely and inspiring sight and a sermon or a psalm in itself. Consolatory words were spoken by her pastor, Rev. Emma E. Bailey, at the services, held at the home on March 9, and comforting hymns were sweetly sung by Miss Doris Howe. Many relatives were there, who will ever hold sacred her memory, and from whose circle she will be madly missed.


Tenderly was this noble friend and woman laid away in the new cemetery when the last good bye was spoken, and the last precious look given. Peace her ashes, and endless life and progress to her departed spirit.

PITTS – Clyde Pitts [SRGP 04236]

Last Monday morning a dispatch was received announcing the death at Manila of Clyde Pitts, of Mansfield, a member of the Third U.S. Artillery, and it was stated that his death was due to homesickness. Young Pitts was the eldest son of Daniel H. Pitts, of Mansfield, the senior member of the mercantile firm of Pitts, Judge & Co., and one of the oldest business men of that borough. Clyde was given every advantage that money could secure, but was of a roving disposition and failed to take advantage of them, and was the last person in the world one would suspect of ever becoming homesick. Last spring his father gave him a handsome sum of money and started him for the Klondike. Clyde got as far as Seattle, Wash., where he concluded to become a soldier and enlisted in the Third Artillery. He was next heard of in Manila, where he was acting as an orderly. His parents and brother and sister were shocked by the news of his death, and have cabled to Manila to have the body sent home, if possible. – Wellsboro Agitator, December 7, 1898
