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.

JOSHUA SPENCER (SRGP 50426)
by C.R. Clarke
A Mainesburg teen-ager was killed in a tragic farming accident Wednesday, May 10, in Richmond Township. Joshua Spencer, 15, of Mainesburg, was driving a tractor on the Hank Sherman farm when the tractor slid into a manure holding pit and flipped over, pinning him under the slurry. Spencer's cause of death was listed as asphyxiation by Tioga County Coroner Dr. James Wilson. State police at Mansfield said the accident occurred as Spencer was using the tractor's back blade to clean an open stall area near the manure holding pit as part of his after-school job at the Sherman farm. The farm is located on Route 549 east of Mansfield. According to state police at Mansfield, manure is pushed into the pit after being pulled with the backblade to a location near the edge of the holding area. According to police, the tractor lost traction on the manure-covered concrete leading down to the pit and began to slide. Spencer was not able to get the tractor stopped before it slid into the pit and flipped over. A second teen, Edwin Booth, 15, was also on the tractor when it began to slide into the pit, which is 15-feet deep. According to Mansfield Fire Chief Rick Roupp, Booth also fell into the manure holding area but was able to free himself. Roupp said the concrete surrounding the pit was "quite slippery" because of the manure that covered it. About 20 Mansfield emergency personnel responded to the scene of the 6 pm accident within minutes, but were unable to locate Spencer in the deep muck. Roupp said a Mansfield Ambulance Association ambulance was returning from a routine transfer at the time of the call, "so they were right in front of the farm when the tones went out." Roupp said the search for Spencer was made more difficult by the consistency of the material in the pit, which tends to act like quicksand. "There's thick crust on top with a layer of watery stuff in the middle and then the thick stuff on the bottom," he said. It took a half hour of prodding with poles to locate Spencer and pull him from the pit. Though emergency personnel immediately began CPR on the boy, they were unable to revive him. He was pronounced dead at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital, Wellsboro. At Mansfield Junior-Senior High School, where Spencer was a freshman, a special assembly was held by principal Trent Bocan, and extra counselors were called in to talk with the teen's classmates, many of whom were distraught over the tragedy, according to guidance counselor Richard Palmer. Palmer described Spencer as "a likeable, helpful young man." "He was always one of the first to volunteer whenever help was needed for any job," Palmer said. According to Palmer, Spencer's classmates made a "huge" show of support for the family at funeral services on Saturday, May 13. An only child, Spencer's mother, Candy, said she was touched by the number of classmates who attended the services. "There were over 200 of his friends there, and later that night they had a memorial basketball game and a bonfire in his honor at a friends home," she said. Spencer said she attended the bonfire for a short time, sharing hugs and tears with her son's friends. "One of the girls told me I raised a big-hearted teddy bear," she added. As can be imagined, Sunday, May 14, Mother's Day, was difficult for Spencer. "He and his dad were going to get me something on Saturday, a craft doll house you can put together, a farm house that he knew I wanted, and he was making a big deal out of that," she said. Working for on the Sherman farm for only two months, Mrs. Spencer said her son was proud of the fact that he was earning his own money. "He had a job, and he was going to buy it (the gift). He liked the idea of working and having his own money," she added. Spencer said she was told that her son was driving the tractor that night, training another boy, when something happened, and the tractor starting sliding sideways. "Josh got his foot caught, and he and the other boy were trying to get it loose and they couldn't," she said. "So Josh told (Booth) to jump, and he wouldn't; so Josh pushed him off" just before the tractor went into the manure holding pit. "He was a good kid, a big kid who never thought he could get hurt doing anything," Mrs. Spencer said. "He was everything to me." One classmate, Michelle Watts, summed up her feelings about Josh in a poem she gave to Mrs. Spencer that pointed out her son's loving personality and good natured smile.
