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.

WORTHY MANSFIELD MAN CALLED to HIS REWARD
J. F. HOWE, (SRGP 09670) one of Mansfield's most esteemed citizens, for worth and usefulness, passed suddenly away at his home in North Main street, on Saturday morning last, February 19, He was seriously ill only a few days, and then was thought to be better, so his death brought surprise and shock to the whole community, The ultimate cause of the removal of this strong man from among us was heart failure.
Mr Howe was born in Greenfield, Pa., on October 29, 1848, and came to Mansfield in 1858, where he since has resided, growing up with the town, and becoming an important part of it. On May 5, 1872, he was married to Miss Hannah E. Hammond, and five children were born to them, who, with Mrs Howe survive: Bet F., Charles C., Frank W., Dora M., and Mrs Fanny Cass. There also survive, one brother, Hezekiah; one half-brother, Van Howe and six grandchildren.
The decedent was principally a farmer all his life, and was much interested in the Grange, but he served the borough in many capacities. When young he was a drayman, and no one about the railroad station could lift so great weights as he. As time advanced, his mental powers, and those of leadership, began to be recognized, and he was made school director. and for many year he served as councilman and street commisioner, which last named office he held at the time of his death. When he championed any cause, or assumed any task, either as leader, or worker, he was a tower of strenght and reliabilty. He was honest and faithful to the core, and it was proverbial that if "Frank Howe undertook anything, was sure to go through to the end. Great tasks were given him for the improvement of our town, and they were accomplished satisfactorilyAs his entire family leaned on him, so the people generally leaned on him and he helped them out of many difficulty. Everybody knew him and he was one of the most familiar figures on our streets. Our town was the better for him, and it will be hard to fill his place. There were deep springs in his nature which responded to the high and holy things of the Gospel, and he had been a member of different churghes in Mansfield, but for a few years past his membership was with the Baptist communion. The funeral was held from the home on Monday afternoon last, and every room was taxed to the utmost to hold the large number of friends and neighbors who spontaneously came forth to testify to the deep regard and love for the man who had died. The Rev. R. M. Hunsicker officiated, and was a misted by a former pastor of the decedent, the Rev. E. E. Bailey. There was a profusion of beautiful floral tokens from the churches, the Grange, business firms and indivuals, a beautiful piece coming from the dear old Fitzpatrick family now living in Olean,N The singing of favorite hymns of the family was by Mrs M. F. Rose and Mrs George L. Palmer, The body of Mr Howe was laid to rest in Prospect cemetery, the burial place which had so recently been beautified by his own efforts and labor. Thus a good man, and a friend to so many, has gone; but may his mantle of usefulness and friendship fall on those of us who are left.
