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.

Sant began life about thirty years ago as a brakeman. Subsequently he became a fireman, and after five years accepted a situation as engineer on the Blossburg and Corning, now known as the Tioga division of the Erie Railroad.

Gillette was seen on the street Friday night and seemed to be all right then. Neighbors near his room heard, or thought they heard groans from some one during the night. When they arose Saturday morning, finding Gillette's door open they went in and found the man unconscious, lying on the bed and groaning. Dr. Rumsey was called and after an examination decided the patient had been taking opium in some form. The doctor gave necessary treatment but Gillette did not respond to it. Later in the day Dr. Garwell was called in counsel with Dr. Rumsey but they failed to help his alarming condition and he gradually grew worse until Sunday morning when he died
. The father [Aaron W. Gillette] of the deceased, who resides at Canoe Camp, PA, came to Galeton and took the remains to his home where funeral and interment took place. - Wellsboro Agitator, February 24, 1909
