Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\bluehunt.jpg

Do You Knowthat 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.

FLETCHER - SUDDEN DEATH AT MAINESBURG [SRGP 09150] Mainesburg and Sullivan residents were greatly shocked last Friday by the sudden demise of Mr. D. Boon Fletcher, a young man whom everybody liked and whose funeral on Sunday was the largest ever held in that boro. Mr. Fletcher left Mainesburg about 10:30 Friday morning with Rev. J. A. James’ horse to take some ice to a Junior Christian Endeavor picnic near the home of Willard Dewey on the state road in Sullivan. He was accompanied by his little daughter, aged 2, and appeared as well and jovial as ever as he exchanged greetings with acquaintances about town. An hour later his horse stopped to drink at a watering trough along the highway in from of Mr. Darwin Miller’s house, two ore three miles out. The little child was crying piteously and a member of Mr. Miller’s household stepped out to learn the cause, when the startling discovery was made that Mr. Fletcher was unconscious. His head was thrown back, he was hatless, one arm was thrust between the bows on the top of the carriage and the other was out-stretched along the back of the seat. A portion of his little daughter’s dress was tucked under him and she was sitting upon the bottom of the wagon box. From these circumstances, his own position in the carriage, and the further fact of the child telling Mr. Miller that her papa had a "had headache," it is thought the state of insensibility in which he was found must have been preceded by a brief but deathly illness in which so far as possible he sought to guard against injury to himself or his child by falling from the conveyance. He was carried into Mr. Miller’s house and Doctors Harkness and Gaskill were hastily summoned, but medical skill proved unavailing. He was taken back to his home in Mainesburg where his death occurred at 7:40 that evening without his having regained consciousness. His demise was due to apoplexy. From the zigzag tracks made by the wagon wheels, the point at which his hat was found in the road and other minor circumstances it is inferred that the fatal seizure came upon him while he was yet within a mile of home. Deceased was a son of Mr. George Fletcher, formerly of Sullivan, but now of Springfield, Pa. Besides his wife and one daughter he is survived by his parents, one brother and four sisters, Ida, Mrs. George Smith of Sullivan, Minnie, Mrs. Fred Gates, and Anna Mrs. Wilson Webster both in California; and Miss Clyde Fletcher at home. Deceased was a member of the State road Baptist Church and of Mainesburg Lodge of Odd Fellows. Last February he was chosen judge of election. He was born in Sullivan thirty-one years ago last February. The funeral was held on Sunday from the Mainesburg M. E. Church, the Rev. J. A. James, officiating. The obsequies were in charge of the Odd Fellows, delegations of which were present from Sylvania, Mansfield and Covington. The burial was in the State Road Cemetery in Sullivan.

The dead are Joseph Osler, 31, of Mainesburg, and his niece, Clara George, aged 8, of Syracuse. The injured, who were taken to the Blossburg Hospital, are: Mrs. Osler, cuts about both legs, fracture of the right ankle and second degree burns about chest, shoulders, back and face.

Barbara George, their daughter, fracture of the left humerus and severe contusion of the left eye. It is thought that the car got out of control of Mr. George, who was driving, as it was going down the hill just before reaching the bridge. The car swerved to the left, struck a corner of the concrete bridge, jumped the creek, throwing Mr. George and some of the other occupants out. Observers stated that the car turned over once, jumped the creek and landed on the opposite bank and burst into flames. In relating the experience to her brother, Clarence Every, Mrs. Osler, who was formerly Miss Eva Every, of Mansfield, said that Mr. Osler tried to hand the George child over the back of the front seat and that she had hold of one of the child's ankles, but was driven back by the flames that were enveloping them. In a moment she said, Mr. Osler slumped forward. Efforts were made by people attracted to the scene to rescue the victims, but they were driven back by the intense heat. A car owned by Lee and Jackson, of Blossburg, and an unidentified Ohio car took the injured to the Blossburg Hospital. Patrolman A. A. Rudville, of the Mansfield sub-station, conducted the investigation. Coroner R. H. Person, of Athens, released the bodies of the victims to undertakers Soper and Mosher, of Sylvania. Mr. and Mrs. George and children were visiting the Oslers and were returning from Troy. A double funeral was held Sunday the home of Mrs. Osler's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Osler, at Mainesburg, the Rev. Glen Dewey, of Mainesburg, officiating. Burial was in the State Road Cemetery.

     In his death the residents of Sullivan recognize the loss of one who was ever entitled to their respect, a companionable man of large general information, integrity, and sound judgment.
