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.

Dr. C.V. Elliott Dies Suddenly

One of Mansfield's Oldest and Most Highly Esteemed Citizens Drops Dead at Door of His Home

Shortly before 5 o'clock last Saturday afternoon death suddenly removed one of Mansfield's oldest, best-known and most highly esteemed residents, Dr. Charles V. Elliott. He had for a long time been in feeble health, but was able to be about his home, in Prospect street, and up to a few weeks ago, occasionally came down to the village. The day of his death he was unusually active, and appeared to be feeling considerably improved physically, His mental faculties were unimpaired. Death came to him just as he reached the door of his home, upon his return from the woodshed with some wood, for which he had gone during a brief absence from the house of Mrs. Elliott. Mrs. James Smythe, who was proceeding up the walk to the house, heard the noise caused by the doctor's falling, and hastened thither, finding him dead at the door which, a moment before, he was about to enter. She summoned Mr. J.F. Howe, who was near, and the body was quickly removed to the house and a messenger dispatched for Mrs. Elliott, who was on her way home from town, whither she had been to attend to some business matters for her husband. Dr. Elliott was a studious, cultured man, well posted on the world's affairs, and, although in his 81st year, was an incessant reader up to the time of his death. For more than a half century he had been one of Mansfield's progressive, substantial citizens, interested in everything that pertained to the welfare of his home town. For a great number of years he practiced his profession, later confining himself to the management of his drug store, located where John P. Bates is now engaged in the same business. Several years ago he retired from active business and devoted his time to his home life, which was ever pleasant. Always kindly of heart, and personally jovial and agreeable, he easily made friends and retained them. In politics, he was a staunch Republican, and was twice chosen by the electors of that party to represent his constituents in the Lower House of the State Legislature. His record as a legislator was characteristic of the man - straightforward and upright, with the best interests of the whole people of the state ever in mind. For twelve years he was postmaster of Mansfield, and held various boro offices, all of which he filled with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of the community. Dr. Elliott was a member of Friendship Lodge, No.247, F&AM, having joined at Covington in 1856, and in religion was an adherent of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Besides his widow, there survive one daughter, Mrs. Mary E. Brown, wife of Dr. C.W. Brown, of Washington, D.C.; one son, Arthur H. Elliott, of New York, and a brother, the Hon. S.B. Elliott, of Reynoldsville, PA. Funeral services were held at the home yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. Charles E. Fessenden, rector of St. James' church, officiating. Burial was in Hope cemetery.

 

Charles Volney Elliott, M.D., son of Larman H. and Mary Elliott, was born in Sheshequin, Bradford County, PA, March 27, 1824, and was 17 years old when his father moved to this county. He read medicine with Dr. Nelson Packer, of Wellsboro, and afterwards took a course in Geneva Medical College, Geneva, NY. In 1847 he began the practice of his profession in Mansfield. In the autumn of 1856 he moved to Hudson City, Wisconsin, and in 1859 returned to Mansfield, resumed his practice here, and also opened a drug store, which he conducted up to 1891, when he disposed of the business to J.M. Smith. In 1860 he was appointed postmaster of Mansfield, and held the office for a dozen years. In 1876 he was elected to the Legislature and was re-elected in 1878. He also served as Burgess, a member of the boro council and a trustee of the State Normal School. Dr. Elliott was married in August 1847, to Eliza A. Graves, a daughter of Elisha Graves, of Troy, Bradford County. Their only child, Mary E., is the wife of Dr. C.W. Brown, a successful physician of Washington, D.C., formerly of this boro, and later of Elmira, NY. Mrs. Elliott died on Nov. 2nd, 1862, and Dr. Elliott married for his second wife Julia Alice Holden, a daughter of Daniel L. and Elizabeth [Mudge] Holden, of Mansfield. The only child of this marriage, Arthur H., was born September 4, 1867, and is now located in New York. - Mansfield Advertiser, October 26, 1904

FREDERICK G. ELLIOTT [SRGP 82454]


Frederick G. Elliott diedat his home on East Wellsboro Street last Thursday evening, the seventy-third anniversary of his birth. He was born September 6, 1850, in Cherry Flats, the son of Col. N. A. Elliott and wife. Educated in the public schools he came to Mansfield and worked in the drug store of C. V. Elliott. While working here he met Julia E. Hartley, of Susquehanna County, who was graduated from the Normal in 1875

They were married in 1879, and two sons were born to them Charles M. Elliott, District Attorney of Tioga County, and Harry E. Elliott, District Forester, located at Coudersport. Later he decided to become a physician and went to the University of Vermont, from which he was graduated in 1889. He practiced his profession in Mansfield and was loved by the people for miles around. He had a geniality that won him friendship with all with whom he came in contact, and especially in the sick room did his presence do much to dispel the usual gloom. He was generous and charitable, both in the matter of money and in his thoughts of other people. There was nobody so bad but "Doc Fred" could find something good in him. Nobody was so poor that they could not have his services when they needed them. He was a man of whom it could truthfully be said, "He went about doing good." He was interested in affairs of the community and served on the boro school board, as well as in other capacities. He was a trustee of Mansfield Normal and President of the Board of Trustees of Blossburg Hospital for many years until his failing health compelled him to resign. Ill health compelled him to give up his practice about five years ago, and much of the time since he has spent in bed, occasional improvement in his condition permitting him to come out a few times. His ready wit and wide knowledge made him sought by people of all classes. His generosity and unselfishness will make him long remembered. Besides his wife and sons he is survived by three grand-children; Julia, Frederick and Thomas. His brother, M. F. Elliott, died three years ago, and his sister, Mrs. T. O. Whitnall, of Syracuse two years ago. The funeral was held from his late home Sunday afternoon at three p.m. The Reverend E. C. Potter, of the Presbyterian Church, of which he was a member, officiated, assisted by the Reverend D. J. Griffiths, of the Baptist Church. Burial was in Prospect Cemetery.

EVERETT - Margaret Everett [SRGP 10231], wife of James Emerson Rose, died in Washington, D.C., Monday morning last. Although not feeling well for several years, yet she had been active until a few weeks ago. She came North last spring and spent some time in Gleason sanitarium. Afterward she came to Mansfield to visit her daughters, Mrs. Edwin S. Coles and Anna Rose, and to renew old acquaintances. In July she went to Buffalo to visit her son, J.W. Rose. The morning after her arrival, she slipped and broke her left arm. An X-ray examination revealed also the right collar bone broken. Seemingly recovered from this, in September she was taken to the home of her sister, Mrs. Robert Johnston, in Washington, with the expectation of going to her own home the next day. In alighting from the carriage her left knee gave way and she fell breaking her left leg and right arm. It was then learned that her life upon this earth would be only for a short time longer. Mrs. Rose was a daughter of Stephen and Maria Dyer Everett, of Jackson township. She was the oldest of seven daughters, being 63 years old May 22nd. She was married on March 14, 1871, to James Emerson Rose, who at that time was a successful teacher in the schools of Tioga and Bradford county, having been graduated from Mansfield Normal in the class of 1867. Mr. & Mrs. Rose resided near Mansfield until November 1891, when they moved to Washington, where they have since resided. In her early girlhood Mrs. Rose had united with the Methodist church in Jackson and since then had followed the teachings of Christ in her every day life. As a friend she was jolly and true; as a wife, loyal in prosperity and adversity, and as a mother, loving and self-sacrificing.  ---------- her going will be felt among the people of this community with whom she had renewed acquaintance frequently. Besides her husband, James Emerson Rose, she is survived by one son, J.W. Rose of Buffalo, NY; two daughters, Mrs. Edwin S. Coles of Mansfield, and Miss Anna Rose, a teacher in Mansfield Normal. She leaves four sisters, Mrs. Byron Bartlett, Mansfield; Mrs. John G. Short, Knoxville; Mrs. Walter Curtis, Buffalo, NY; and Mrs. Robert Johnston of Washington, D.C. There is also one grandson, James Stacy Coles, of Mansfield. The body was brought to Mansfield yesterday. The funeral will be held from the Methodist church at one o'clock today, the Rev.

FARRER, Jennie [SRGP 86654] – The Late Mrs. Jennie Farrer Avery [SRGP 86654]

In Liberty, PA, almost 75 7ears ago a child was born to William and Elizabeth Farrer and named Jennie Edwards Farrer. Among Pennsylvania’s beautiful and enduring hills her body became strong, her mind endued with power. Fortunately, along with these gifts came a deep spiritual growth and a vision – a vision of service through teaching, and at the age of 17 this service, which was to last through so many years, began. “Boarding around,” sometimes under almost primitive conditions she came to know intimately and to love dearly the children with whom she came in contact. From this association she came to understand that a child might misbehave in school or have poorly prepared lessons because of an empty stomach or wrong food. Because of this she never condemned a child without trying to find the contributing course for failure or delinquency. For many years she very successfully taught in the rural schools and then came the urge for better preparation, and she entered the Mansfield State Normal School, graduating in 1876. The present year, the class of which she was a member celebrated its fiftieth anniversary and how proud she was of every individual member of that class present Alumni Day. How she worked and prepared for this reunion. Following graduation she taught one year at Prompton, Wayne County and then was called to the teaching force in Wellsboro, where she labored for nine years. While in Wellsboro she accomplished many things worthy of note, among them was the illustrated project work. Now-a-days we take this work for granted, but at that time no one had thought of making the work of geography, for instance, live vividly through and illustrated note book compiled by the children. Illness in the family brought her back to Mansfield where she taught for four years in the borough high school. In 1890 she was married to Albert H. Avery and for the space of nine years made a home beautiful with flowers, good cheer, fine friendship and abiding love. After Mr. Avery’s death she went to Idaho to visit a brother, Dr. Thomas Farrer, and while there was called upon to take the Superintendency of the county in which she resided. Here a magnificent piece of pioneer work was carried on. So great it was and so big that space cannot be given to tell of all the activities, but schoolhouses were built and teachers provided in almost inaccessible regions. The work of those days will go on forever. In 1916 she returned to Mansfield, this time as a teacher in the Normal School. While teaching here she began her work in pre-vocational education. Always something new and in advance of her time. In 1922 she reached the age of retirement and since then has made her home in Mansfield. Last year, when the American magazine wished to have an article written on a truly typical and most representative teacher in America, they sent their correspondent to the department of Rural Education at Columbia University. The head of the department cited her to Mrs. Avery. She came to Mansfield and after an interview lasting two days returned to New York and wrote the article which appeared in December 1925, American Magazine. This honor comes only to those considered worthy and it was with pride that her friends and neighbors read the article, which merely confirmed what many of us already knew that in our midst was a real personage. Militant she might be and was when a real occasion demanded, but her heart was tender to all who needed tenderness. Sympathy came to her naturally, but with sympathy she gave the needed help or word. She was intensely interested in her church and in the civic improvement of Mansfield. She so wished to see trees planted, both in the borough and along the highways, to see more vegetable and flower gardens. Birds she loved greatly. In fact, a true nature lover was Jennie Farrer Avery. He death was peaceful and we know she is with many of those she loved, but to us her memory is most vital and her influence will, as her pastor stated in his sermon, never die but go on eternally. – G.E.S.    Funeral services were held July 17 at the Presbyterian Church, Rev. Hubert Stanton officiating. Mrs. Avery was born August 23, 1852, at Liberty, PA, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Farrer. She died June 14 [1926] at the Blossburg hospital following illness of six weeks. She was a member of the Columbian Literary Exchange, the Republican Women’s Council, the WCTU and societies of the Presbyterian Church. She is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Mary H. Kendrick of Mansfield; Mrs. Anna F. Reese of Utica; Mrs. Libbie Williams of Blossburg; W.S. Farrer and John E. Farrer of Mansfield; and Dr. Thomas Farrer of Cadwell, Idaho. – Mansfield Advertiser = Published in the Wellsboro Agitator, July 28, 1926, p.2

FITZGERALD - Mansfield Advertiser - Apr. 22nd 1873 issue: Mrs. Fanny Fitzgerald Clark (SRGP 35973) died Friday Apr 11th in Richmond Township. Born Orange County NY, Dec. 28th 1803. came here 1828 married E.P. Clark Oct. 20th 1834. Five sons, Warren, Frank, J.M., left.

FITZGERALD - Mrs. Fanny Clark
At her residence, near Mansfield, April 11th, of pneumonia, Mrs. Fanny, wife of E. P. Clark, in her 70th year.  She was a native of Orange county, NY.  Her maiden name was Fitzgerald.  Having lost all her near relatives while quite young, she came to Tioga county in 1828, and engaged in the profession of teaching, for which good common-school education and strong intellect had well qualified her.  In 1834 she married E. P. Clark, and settled on the farm where she died.  The husband who mourns the loss of the loving, faithful companion of nearly 40 years, can best testify to her wifely virtues, and has the sympathy of all who know him.  Her five sons grow to manhood, and an adopted daughter, loved as a sister, made the circle complete.  Her motherly devotion was ever beautiful to behold; and when her eldest and her youngest sons were called home, a few years since, the bereavement caused a sorrow which time could never remove, and it clouded all her remaining days.  She was one of the 13 charter members of the Baptist church in Mansfield, and labored with untiring energy and zeal to build the house, which was a credit to the little band, who, in their poverty, “built a House unto the Lord.”  Of this church she continued an influential member till called to the church above.  A woman of remarkable memory, and taking an interest in all the great political questions which agitated the country from time to time, of bright intellectual faculties, and varied knowledge, she was an able advocate of any cause she espoused.  As such, and for her strict adherence to duty, wonderful mother-love and fidelity to friends and principles, she will be long remembered and beloved.  Her funeral was largely attended, although the roads were almost inpassable.  The whole community seemed desirous of testifying its regard for the departed.  Mansfield, April 25th, 1873.  (Tuesday, May 6, 1873, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
