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.

Miller said all three died of brain damage as the result of fracture skulls. Their deaths raised the toll to nine so far this year. No inquest will be held, Dr. Miller said. In critical condition as a result of the accident is Mr. Price's wife, Theresa Price, 22, who is in the Williamsport Hospital intensive care unit. Also injured was Mrs. Clark's husband, Welford, 33, the driver, who is reported in fair condition at the same hospital. He suffered shoulder, mouth and facial injuries. Clark's son, Thomas, 7, was taken to Geisinger Medical Center from the Williamsport Hospital and underwent surgery for head injuries upon his arrival. He was taken to Geisinger hospital in the Trout Run ambulance shortly after arriving in the hospital emergency room. Another son, Allen Clark, 8, was treated for minor injuries and released.

He died at 3:30 a.m. Monday. Trooper, Carl S. Harnish, of the Montoursville Barracks, said Clark was driving his 1964 model car north and Price was southbound when the two cars collided head-on. The accident occurred on the new two-lane road that was opened to traffic late last fall. Route 15 will eventually be four lanes there. The officer said the accident occurred 300 feet south of a curve in the road. The cars collided in the northbound lane of traffic. A relative of the Clark family said they had spent Easter in Williamsport and were turning home when the accident occurred. A daughter of the Clark family, who also visited in Williamsport, remained there and was not in the car at the time of the accident. Damage was set at $800 to the demolished 1964 model Clark car and $1,500 to the foreign make car driven by Price.
