These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors and relatives. 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.

A. WARD (SRGP 08349)
Mansfield and vicinity was shocked and grieved Monday when the news spread of the death of Ward Bailey, Carrier on Route Number Two out of Mansfield. Mr. Bailey had been suffering from the effects of a severe cold, but continued to make his rounds in his usual efficient manner. However, on one of the trips he became so ill that he could not complete his rounds and another carrier finished for him. Mr. Bailey grew rapidly worse, pneumonia developing and Monday morning about three o’clock he died. A. Ward Bailey was the son of Wesley and Fanny Gertrude Hoard Bailey, and was born in Charleston on February 16, 1864. His boyhood days were passed in Charleston, where he attended the schools and later finished in the Mansfield Business college. He was married three times, his first wife being Mollie Urell; the second being Grace Sweet, both of whom are deceased. His third marriage was to Mrs. Ethel Stickler, who survives him, together with two sons by the second marriage, Llewellyn and Raymond Bailey, of Mansfield; four by the third marriage, Frances, Jeanette, Josephine and Donald, one step-son, Marvin Love, a step-daughter, Pretha Love; a brother, Dwight H. Bailey, of Mansfield, and a sister, Mrs. Sarah Josephine Grenolds, of Buffalo. Mr. Bailey had been a mail carrier for about fourteen years, and being a man of jolly and congenial nature he had made many friends, not only along the route he served, but among those whom he met in the course of daily life. The sympathy of all these is extended to the bereaved family. He was a member of Mansfield Grange and the Rural Carriers’ Association; also of the Mansfield Methodist Episcopal church. The funeral will be held today (Wednesday) from his late home, at three o’clock, the Reverend F. P. Simmons officiating. Interment will be in Prospect Cemetery.

- Mrs. Betsy Lawrence (SRGP) 16677)
Her Death at the Remarkable Age of 101 Years
Mrs. Betsy Lawrence, than whom there were few older persons living in this part of the state, died at the home of her son, C. H. Lawrence, in this boro, about 4 o'clock last Sunday morning aged 100 years, 8 months and 14 days. Mrs Lawrence had been confined to her bed only since Thursday of last week. She conversed intelligently with members of the family Saturday afternoon and to all appearances, while unable longer to speak, retained control of her mental faculties to the hour of dissolution.
Mrs. Lawrence was born in the State of Massachusetts, on Feb. 11, 1791. She was the youngest of ten children equally divided between the sexes, of Mr. And Mrs. Robert Bailey. When eleven years old she accompanied her oldest brother, Roswell Bailey, to this county and continued to reside with him on a farm hewn from the wilderness near the present hamlet of Dartt Settlement until, a few years later, her parents left their New England home to take up their residence on one of the Bingham estate possessions embracing the farm near the mouth of Mill Creek, subsequently known as the Joseph Guernsey place. The house in which they lived was a rough log structure, and stood between the railroad tract of today and the Tioga river. Roswell Bailey, previously mentioned as the brother with who Mrs. Lawrence came to Pennsylvania, was the father of John W. Bailey, of Wellsboro; Mrs. Philip Williams, of this boro, and Clark, Robert, Benjamin, Wilson and Rockwell Bailey and Mrs. Richard Moore, all long since deceased. Among the near neighbors of the Bailey family at Mill Creek, was Lyman Adams, father of William Adams of this boro, who conducted a general store and carried on a saw mill in the neighborhood.. From the mouth of Mill Creek, which at the time of which we write was an important business centre, the Bailey family moved to the farm in Rutland, near the mouth of Bailey creek, now owned by William Lawrence, of this boro. In 1811 or 1812 the subject of this sketch was married to Jonathan Lawrence, a native of Connecticut, who had learned the hatter's trade in the east and for some years after coming to Pennsylvania manufactured the head gear for his fellow citizens both far and near. Soon after their marriage Mr. And Mrs. Lawrence moved to Columbia Flats, now Sylvania, just over the county line in Bradford county. Here they lived happily for nearly a quarter of a century, for many years conducting a hotel or old-time tavern. About the year 1840 they moved to the farm in Sullivan township subsequently owned by Nathan Palmer, where five years later, at the age of 63, Mr. Lawrence died, leaving to his windowed companion the care of their three oldest children; six other children having preceded their father to the great beyond. Those living were Caroline, (Mrs. Nathan Palmer) who died two years ago, aged 73, Herrick, who died in Mansfield in 1872, aged 47, and Mr. C. H. Lawrence, the youngest child, with who the aged lady has for several years made her home and at whose house her death occurred.The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the house and the remains interred in Hope cemetery, this boro.

BAILEY Gordon L. [SRGP 61210] – Mansfield Sailor Met Accidental Death on U.S.S. Troy. The body of Gordon L. Bailey was sent to Mansfield from Brooklyn for burial, the services being held July 5 at 2 p.m. from the home of his brother, John Bailey, Rev. Norman J. Mecklem, of the Baptist church, officiating, soldier friends of the deceased acting as pallbearers. Gordon L. Bailey was born in Mansfield 19 years ago, a son of the late Freeman Bailey, and besides his mother is survived by three brothers, John, Leon and Ralph. He had had considerable military experience, having been a member of the 19th Cavalry at Ft. Ethan Allen, and the 77th Field Artillery at Camp Selby, Miss. He was honorably discharged from service, but soon afterward enlisted in the navy and went to Great Lakes naval Training Station, afterwards to the battleship Kentucky, serving in the naval line near Brest until the armistice sent most of the fellows home. He was sent to Great Lakes again, and had been expecting his discharge, but instead was assigned to the S.S. Troy, engaged in bringing home troops. On the 20th of June he wrote from Brest that he was on his way over and hoped to receive his discharge soon afterward and be able to come home to care for his widowed mother. On the 26th he met accidental death, from suffocation in a coal bunker, the exact details of which are not yet obtainable. From a notation on the box containing the casket and the fact that there were bruises upon his face and arms, it would seem that the coal in the bunker had become lodged, and he had made an effort to loosen it when it covered him over and in that way caused his death. The note said there was 15 feet of coal in the pit. July 2 - Mrs. Bailey received the telegram announcing his death. – Advertiser. Wellsboro Agitator 16 July 1919
