Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008 

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.

.

SRGP ID Added in parentheses by Joyce M .Tice if included in her Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. If you are researching or descended from any of those so designated, it is requested that you share your research with Joycs's SRGP if you have not already done so. That is the price I ask for making this site available. It is your opportunity to share in the cost of creating this site and reward Joyce just a tad for making this enormous body of resource available to you. It is a way to pay your dues in a small way for use of this site. Please reference the SRGP ID and the page you found this on the site, when you write to me. For women listed under a married alias, I have provided her real name, if I know it.

MILLER - DEATH OF MISS EMMA MILLER (SRGP 07166) The State Road Church suffered an irreparable loss, her many friends a crushing bereavement, in the untimely death last Friday afternoon of Miss Emma Miller at the home of her sister, Mrs. R. W. Rose, in this boro. Miss Miller was taken sick while teaching at Pickering, near Philadelphia. About January 15th she came home suffering from appendicitis. After two weeks she grew rapidly worse, and on Thursday Doctors Jennings of Elmira, Eliott of Mansfield and Nye of Roseville, performed an operation. This was the only thing within human reach that could possible save her life. But alas, it was too late. Miss Miller graduated from our Normal School in the class of ’92, afterwards taking college preparatory work. She was a young lady of retiring disposition, exceptionally bright intellect, a sincere friend. She was instinctively religious, intensely interested in the kingdom of her God. Religion to her was not a decorative article, but the first and highest duty of life. She became a member of the State Road Baptist Church when quite young, and never for a day did she lose interest in the church or in the kingdom of her Christ. In her demise the community has lost a life of beauty, and the state a gifted teacher, one who readily won the confidence and admiration of parents and by her skill and helpful ways greatly endeared herself to her pupils. She leaves to mourn her death, her father, D. D. Miller, one brother, Charles Miller, and four sisters, Mrs. J. E. Gray of Sullivan, Mrs. Leroy Welch, Mrs. R. W. Rose and Mrs. Morgan E. Rose of this boro. The funeral was held at 1 o’clock Monday afternoon from the home of Mr. R. W. Rose, the pastor of the deceased, Rev. J. A. James, officiating, assisted by the Rev. L. M. Gates. The burial was in the family plot in the State Road Cemetery.

MORGAN - MRS ADDIE MORGAN JAMES (SRGP 07016) - A deep gloom of sadness was cast over this community on Saturday, June 24th, when it was learned that Mrs Addie Morgan James, the beloved wife of Rev. A. James, pastor of the State Road Baptist church, had died on that morning at 8 o'clock. Two months ago she gave birth to a son, and for a few weeks was apparently getting better, but her recovery must have been more seeming than real, for again she grew worse and for several hours before her death suffered untold agony. She was the daughter of Mr and Mrs F. S. Morgan, of Sullivan and was related to many of the most respected families in the neighborhood. Her funeral took place on Monday afternoon and was of the largest that has been seen in this section for many years. The religious exercises were in charge of Rev. Gates, of Mansfield, who offered a prayer at the house. The cortege then proceeded to the State Road church, which was too small to accommodate much more than half the people. Around the pulpit were many bouquets and wreaths of lovely flowers, the gifts of friends. The scripture lesson was read by --- H. E. Hyde, pastor of the M. E. Church at Mainesburg, and a prayer made by Rev. J. T. Jones, of Ebensburg, who also delivered a short but touching address. Rev. Gates followed with a beautiful sermon from John xiii-7, ,what I thou knowest not now, but thou will understand hereafter." The music was supplied by the following quartet: Miss Clara Webster. Miss Jessie Robbins, Mark Webster and Charles Strange. Miss Grace Rumsey presided at the organ. In each instance the favorite hymns of the deceased were sung. At the grave the burial service was read by Rev. Gates, prayer was made by Rev. Hyde and the benediction by Rev. Jones. The grave was thickly lined inside with church flowers, so that it may be said that she was laid to rest in a bed of roses. The casket was the most beautiful we have ever seen. There was at the funeral a universal demonstration, of sorrow which indicated that she was beloved of all who were present While viewing the remains in the church even strong men gave way to an overpowering emotion as they thought that they were gazing for the last time on the face of their good Christian friend. By her untimely death her husband is deprived of a loving and helpful wife, her parents of a beautiful daughter, the church of -:in excellent neighbor For several years she had been the organist at State Road church, an energetic member of the Christian Endeavor Society and a faithful teacher in the Sabbath school. Her quiet amiable and kind disposition won the sincere respect of all her acquaintances. She knew no class distinctions and had a smile and kind word for all. Never given to a display of her religion, her noble Christian character influenced for good all who came in contact with her. In her death the poor in this neighborhood have lost a friend, for she did not allow her left hand to share the secrets of her right, it is generally known that she was the silent performer of many charitable deed. Mrs James believed in saying little and doing much.

Much sympathy is felt for Rev. J. A. James and Mr and Mrs Morgan in their bereavement, and their many friends wish them strength and comfort of the Heavenly Father in their great sorrow. Mrs James had been married only two years and was in her thirty first year Her motherless babe is still living and is in the affectionate charge of the grand parent Mainesburg, Pa., June 28, 1899

As a wife she was a helpmeet indeed, loyal and true, cheerful and affectionate; she has made her home a Paradise of wedded bliss. As a mother, striving in the strength of her Divine master, she has ever sought to train the children for home and heaven As a member of the church faithful to her covenant vows, willing and cheerful, she has been a light in the church In the sick room she has been a friend indeed, in the name of her Master she has gone among the afflicted of the community and brought comfort, gladness and relief Truly a good woman has fallen; a mother in Israel has gone to her rest. A devoted wife, a good neighbor, a noble woman has laid by the garments of mortality and enrobed in the splendors of the heavenly home. She rests from her labors and her works do follow her.
