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.

CADY - William Hamilton Cady [SRGP 07442] died in Detroit last week Tuesday night. He had been in poor health at times since last spring, when he was in the hospital for a time. On his visit to Mansfield in the late summer he was not in the best of health, and a couple weeks ago he had to give up. He was taken to the hospital two weeks ago yesterday, was operated on the next day and again on Sunday, the first operation not giving relief. Mrs. Cady sent for her parents, Mr. & Mrs. W.D. Gray, and they stated for Detroit, but Mr. Cady died before they arrived. W.H. Cady was born in Blossburg, Jan. 14, 1885, the son of Mr. & Mrs. Charles Cady. His father dying when he was a baby, he was taken to live with relatives in Elmira. Here he went to school, sold papers, and learned the printers' trade. He worked in Elmira, Detroit, Cleveland and San Francisco, and so rapidly forged his way to the front that he became foreman of the Joseph Mann Printing House in Detroit in his twenties, a position he held at the time of his death. On June 14, 1911, he was married to Nellie Anna, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. W.D. Gray, a graduate of Mansfield Normal in 1910. One daughter, Eleanor, was born to them, June 26, of this year. Mr. & Mrs. Cady had spent their summers in Mansfield since their marriage, and he had made friends among all the friends of Mrs. Cady. An ambitious young man, of even disposition and optimistic mien, it did seem sad that he should be called. The funeral was held Saturday at 2 p.m., from the home of W.D. Gray, with burial in State Road cemetery. The Rev. Mr. James officiated. - Gray-Strange scrapbook [Death on tombstone 1914]

Maine let her gentle humor guide her through 45 years of teaching
(Star-Gazette, Sunday, March 19, 1995)
The bible says, "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches," and a lady at Straits Personal Care Home for the Elderly in Centerville, shows how it's done. Lura Connelly Maine, daughter of Walter and Maggie Connelly, was born on March 3, 1895, in the Armenia Mountain area west of Troy, PA. She was married to Joseph Maine, whose grandparents were the original settlers in the Mainesburg area. When I saw her on March 3, she was doing fine at the Straits home on her 100th birthday. Harlan Press, principal of the Mosherville school for 34 years, was there. He had a kind, gentle manner with Lura, a famous teacher in the area with 45 years' teaching experience. He asked, "Would you teach if you had it to do over again?" She replied, "Of course. The kids were precious and still are. I've always taught primary grades, and they were wonderful." Harlan also asked if she used a hickory stick. "I always had a big one standing in the corner, but rarely had to use it," she said. Lura said at times she had to teach eight grade in one room, with as many as 40 kids. Elrena Wolfe, Lura Maine's niece, said when Lura lived in Mainesburg during her teaching years, she was a fine neighbor, at times paying for repairs on her neighbors' homes without their knowledge. She used to drive a horse and buggy to school. Asked how much she was paid at that time, Lura said, "Oh, every now and then they gave me $20." Elrena said Lura's hobbies were collecting old buttons, many Civil War types, and old coins, and she liked to fish. She told Elrena her biggest problems with the kids were talking and chewing gum. "I used to make them stand in the corner for that," she said. Mary Seymour, a lady who lived near Mainesburg, told me that in 1921, Lura Maine was her third-grade teacher in the Mainesburg school, and even today, she can remember how neat and well-dressed and what a natural leader Lura was. "I never heard Lura say an unkind word about anyone," Mary said. "Instead, she would make a humorous comment, with malice toward none." Lura is a member of the State Road Baptist Church near Mainesburg and has been since her mother carried her there when she was a baby (which means nearly 100 years). When she had a car, she hauled kids to youth activities and was very interested in the church foreign missions programs. Lura also was church clerk. Bessie Baker, a retired teacher with 30 years' experience, said Lura was her first-grade teacher in the Mosherville school in 1927 when she was 4 years old. Lura also was her son Don's first-grade teacher at the Mosherville school. Carolyn Wright, of Mosherville, said both her son, Edgar, 50, and her daughter, Patricia, were Lura's students. They remember hot soup on the old stove on cold winter days, nature hikes, taffy pulls, and Lura dressed like a bunny, passing out Easter candy. Lura attended the Red School, Mansfield High School, and Mansfield College for her teaching degree. Lura Connelly Maine makes a fine lasting impression on all who know her.
CONNELLY - MICHAEL CONNELLY (SRGP 09045) - Death of an aged Citizen of Mainesburg: Michael Connelly passed peacefully away to the spirit world, May 24, 1876, in the seventy-ninth year of his age. His birthplace was in Dutchess County, NY. At the age of twenty-one years he came west and settle in the town of Hector, Thompkins County, NY. Some sixteen years after he removed into Sullivan township, locating near Mainesburg when the hills and valleys were covered with their primeval forests, and has resided here about forty-one years. He was the father of ten children--- five boys and five girls --- some of whom have gone before, but most of them still remain on the shores of time. The companion of his young and vigorous manhood and ripe old age still survives, cheerful and resigned tho’ bereft and inform, to walk on alone only a few more short and feeble steps til she shall reach that home where “there is rest for the weary.” ---- Wellsboro Agitator, 6 June 1876, p. 12
CONNELLY, Ruby - (SRGP 19051) Death of Mrs. Ruby Paul-- Ruby
Connelly Paul, youngest daughter of B.D. and Philetta D. Connelly, was born in
Sullivan October 31, 1893, and diedat the home of her sister, Mrs. D. D. Welch,
in Covington, Sept. 20 , 1926, after an extended illness. Burial was in the
State Road Cemetery. She leaves one daughter, Lois Jane Paul, and three sisters,
Mrs. D. D. Welch, Covington; Mrs. Carrie of Geneva, New York, and Mrs. D. A.
D.C. of Corning. She died while visiting at the home of her sister, Mrs. D.D.
Welch on April 20. The funeral was held in the Methodist church in Mainesburg,
Rev. Mr. Fitzgerald officiating. The former State Road choir, of which he was
long a member, sang the dear old hymns she loved so well, but in the vain we
listened for one note of her voice, we're so often blended in notes of comfort
in praise. Expression to esteem and sympathy with the lovely floral pieces sent
by the Ladies Aid of Mainesburg, of which society she was a member, and by
relatives and friends. Even as those beautiful flowers, which covered her
casket, gave up their light unselfish way, without murmur shedding their
fragrance to the last on all alike, happy that they had a mission to perform,
so were they a fitting emblem of the life of the subject of our sketch
