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.

GOLDEN, William – William Golden, of Blossburg, died Friday morning following a brief illness from stomach trouble.  His illness was not thought to be of a serious nature until the past few days, when complications developed.  Mr. Golden was 60 years of age and his entire life was spent in Blossburg, where he was born.  He was one of Blossburg’s leading and progressive business men and was best known through the county as a member of the well known firm of coal operators, Golden Brothers, being associated together with his brother, T.J. Golden, in the mining and shipping of coal.  The Golden Brothers for 14 years operated for the Morris Run Coal and Mining Company and for several years they have given their attention to the development of their own coal lands south of Blossburg.  Extensive improvements were now under way in the development of their fields and the death of Mr. Golden, who was an expert mining man, will be keenly felt.  He was a man of genial disposition, and his upright business methods made him friends by the score.  He is survived by two sisters, Celia, at home, and Nora, of Boston, and one brother, T.J. Golden, of Blossburg.  The funeral was held from St. Andrew’s Catholic church Monday morning Rev. M.J. Kelly officiating; burial in St. Andrew’s cemetery.   Wellsboro Agitator, 21 May 1919.

MCCARTHY, Jeremiah M. – Jeremiah M. McCarthy, of Corning, one of the best known New York Central Railroad conductors on the Pennsylvania Division, died at the Corning hospital Friday morning as the result of injuries received Thursday afternoon about 2:30 o’clock when he fell down the cellar stairs of his home and fractured his skull.  It was found at the hospital that Mr. McCarthy had suffered a fracture at the base of the skull.  When first injured he was dazed but later he became unconscious.  Thursday afternoon he was engaged in carrying sand from the rear of the house to the cellar, where he intended to do some repair work.  He secured two pails of sand and started down the stairs, when he slipped, or caught his foot, and fell forward, striking on his head.  Painters and paperhangers who were working in the house heard Mr. McCarthy fall and ran to his assistance.  The deceased was born in Addison, 69 years ago, the son of Dennis McCarthy and Elizabeth Mullaney.  When a boy he moved with his parents to Blossburg, Pa., where he resided until about 20 years ago.  In Blossburg, he married Miss Delia Eley, of that village, and later removed to Corning.  Mr. McCarthy, while in Blossburg, had been employed as a railroad trainman.  When he removed to cor4ning he took employment with the Fall Brook Railroad as a passenger conductor, continuing in that capacity when the railroad was taken over by the New York Central.  For approximately 40 years he had been a passenger conductor.  Next September he would have been retired on a pension, as he then would have reached the age of 70 years.  The untimely death of Mr. McCarthy brings to a climax a series of distressing and sad incidents that afflicted the family during the past year.  One year ago Miss Bessie McCarthy, a daughter, died following an illness of influenza.  Sometime before Mrs. McCarthy died under distressing circumstances.  It was but a short time afterward that Miss Florence McCarthy, another daughter, was badly burning when her clothing caught fire at her home.  She is still confined to Corning Hospital as the result of that accident.  The death of Mr. McCarthy now comes as a severe shock to the remaining members of the family and the relatives.  Mr. McCarthy was one of the best known conductors on the New York Central, and he had a host of friends all along the road over which he traveled daily.  His cheerful attitude, his smile and his genial disposition will always be remembered by those who knew him, says the Leader.  The deceased was a member of Corning Council, Knights of Columbus, and of the Brotherhood of Railway Engineers.  He was a devout member of St. Mary’s church, which he attended regularly.  Mr. McCarthy leaves one daughter, Miss Florence McCarthy; one son, Francis McCarthy, of Australia, and four brothers, Dennis, of Addison; John, of Hornell; Charles, of Orange, N.J.; and James, of Brooklyn, N.Y.  The funeral was held Monday morning at 8:30 o’clock at St. Mary’s church; burial in Blossburg.   Wellsboro Agitator, 17 December 1919.
