Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors and relatives. They bought goods and services from each other and attended school and church together.  Numbers in parentheses are the Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project IDs.

                                   John F. Daily, born at the Daily Farm, Tioga Township in 1840. He died near Tioga at the age of 91 in 1931. He was next to the last surviving member of the famous Bucktail Regiment of  the Civil War. At the age of 13 he began working in the woods on Pine Creek every winter until the call from President Lincoln for 75,000 in April 1861 for 80 days, to quell the disturbance following the firing on Fort Sumpter. Mr. Daily enlisted at Tioga in a Company  organized by Capt. H. McDonald, known as Company G. of the old “Bucktail” Rev. 1st Rifles  or 13th Infantry Vol. Reserves. A Captain Biddle was Commander. On arriving at Harrisburg they found all the 90-day companies filled but were told they could join three-year companies. Mr. Daily enlisted in one of these companies. He took part in the following battles: New Creek Station, Drainsville, South Mountain, Seven Day’s Fight on the Peninsula, Mechanicsville, Cole Harbor Savage Station, Chickahorning, Peach Orchard, White Oak Swamp, Glendale,  Nelson Farm, Turkey Bend, Gettysburg, Mine Run and the Battle of the Wilderness. In July1861, he was sent from Cumberland, Md. With a scouting party of 34 picked men under Col. Kane to a point near Romney to clear the B & O RR for passage of trains with Union Troops and supplies. At New Creek Station, the enemy got between them and their camp.
 The scouts quartered in a stone and brick house were attacked by a Confederate detachment numbering 400 and repulsed them. Col. Biddle heard the scouts were surrounded and came to their relief. At the battle of Fredericksburg, Daily helped carry back the wounded. The second day of the battle of the Wilderness, while in woods in line of battle, waiting orders, under fire, three men were killed within a few feet of him. Next day he was wounded. He was in hospitals at Washington, D.C, Baltimore, Md., and Little York, Pa. Early in 1862, he was detailed as Teamster of Ammunition wagons, which place he held for six months. While employed in this capacity he was in Chambersburg when that city was captured by the rebel cavalry under General Stuart. He secured a suit of civilian clothes and escaped. He was honorably discharged in June 1864 and returned to Mansfield, where he lived until about 1929. He sold out and visited relatives in the west and died at the home of a cousin near Tioga. He was buried in Prospect Cemetery with military honors. He was a member of General Mansfield Post No. 48 GAR, which he joined on Jan. 1880. He held office of Senior Vice Commander, Surgeon, Officer of the Guard and Officer of the Day. Lester Barden, who sent a clipping on Mr. Daily, lives in the former Daily property on Cole St.

DECKER, AMBROSE R. (SRGP 76952)
 Ambrose R. Decker, 72 years old, died at his home in North Main Street, Sunday morning, November 1, 1924.  His funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock at his late home, Rev. Fred Simmons, of Mansfield M.E. church officiating; burial was in Prospect cemetery.  Mr. Decker was always in business here, after his marriage to Dora M. Nelson, October 18, 1872.  He was proprietor of the Sash and Blind factory for years and numerous homes in this village, Wellsboro, Blossburg, Covington and Elkland have windows and trimmings sawed by his hand or under his direction.  He engaged in the coal business here and for more than 35 years has been one of the leading dealers of the county.  For the last year Mr. Decker had been unable to be at his office, but his wise counsel has guided the business.  Many families can attest to the generosity of Mr. Decker in his coal business.  Times without number he has sent fuel to families in need and never has one of these deliveries found entry in his books.  He was honest in his dealings and lenient at all times.  He was generous with his employees, and a loving indulgent father.  While he did not enroll in membership with any church, his belief in a divinity and teachings of a hereafter was sublime.  Prayer and the Golden Rule were paramount in his living.  And he never was heard to express fear of death, but was ready for the call.  Fifty-two years ago Tuesday, Mr. Decker cast his first vote and it was a presidential election; he was buried November 4, during a presidential election.  Six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Decker, all living today; Edith Robinson Lamb, Leah Davey, Fred, Dana, of Mansfield; Eva Cook, of Canisteo, and Ida Sherwood, of this place.  But two deaths had entered the Decker family prior to the decease of Mr. Decker, and these were grandchildren in infancy.  The six children and two grandchildren were bearers at the funeral, and surely no parent ever was borne to rest by more tender and loving sympathy.  Flowers were beautiful and profuse, and the large number of friends attending the funeral emphasized the keen and deep regard accorded Mr. Decker by all who knew him.  For years Mr. Decker was superintendent of Farm Products and Farm Implements departments of the Mansfield fair, and no man derived more satisfaction because of continued progressiveness of the fair than did Ambrose Decker. For ten years Mr. Decker had suffered from a severe form of heart trouble—angina pectoris.  At times his sufferings have been severe and again he would get along without any visible pain.  Death came to him as a result of a general collapse physically, surrounded by his children.  Loving and constant care attended Mr. Decker, he often saying he wanted to be at home with Dora, in preference to the associations of a hospital.  Those from out of town who were in Mansfield to attend the funeral of Mr. Decker Tuesday were Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Cook and daughters, Virginia and Mona, of Canisteo, N.Y.; Mr. and Mrs. John Miller and Miss Mary Miller, of Coudersport; Mr. and Mrs. Lyons, Mr. and Mrs. George Demey, Mr. and Mrs. N.S. Way, Mrs. Harold Barlow, James Way and Mrs. Rose Comfort, of Binghamton; Mr. and Mrs. K. I. Bellows and two daughters, Lillian and Mary, of Knoxville; Mrs. Ross Rundell and Mrs. Emma Jones, of Elmira.
