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.

Welby LAWRENCE, of Roseville, Cut His Wife’s Throat and His Own

of Roseville, Rutland township, who has been insane for some time, attempted to kill his wife early last Thursday morning and being frustrated by his son, ran into another room and cut his throat with a razor, dying within half an hour. Mr. & Mrs. Lawrence arose about 5 o’clock and were in the kitchen when Lawrence suddenly attacked his wife with a razor, slashing at her throat and cutting a small gash. He struck at her many times and at each attempt to reach her throat the maniac cut his wife’s hands and arms as she tried to defend herself. Mrs. Lawrence’s screams were heard by her 18 year old son and when he appeared on the scene, Lawrence, still carrying the razor, ran into an adjoining room and, before his son could prevent it, cut his throat, severing the jugular vein. He bled to death in a few minutes. – Wellsboro Agitator, 30 May 1906

MARCELLUS, Narcissa - (SRGP 20479) BENSON, MRS. JOHN
On Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 11, 1890, Mrs. John Benson, one of Roseville’s most esteemed residents, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. G. W. Eighmey, of Daggett’s Mills, PA., after a long and painful illness.  Mrs. Benson’s maiden name was Naccissa E. Marcillus.  She was born at Burlington, Bradford Co., Pa., and was united in marriage with John Benson on April 1st, 1846.  In the same year they moved to Columbia Twp., in the same county, and took up their residence in the woods.  Of the children who were born to them five are living:  J. H. Benson, of Mansfield; Jeroe Benson, of Roseville; Mrs. Judson Oldroyd, of Roseville; Mrs. H. L. Rockwell, of same place, and Mrs. G. W. Eighmey, of Daggett’s Mills; also a number of grandchildren, who will miss her loving smile, her friendly greeting and the kind words of advice which she was wont to give them.  She and her husband, who now survives her, being among the early settlers of the part where they first located, were consequently deprived of many privileges, endured much toil and many hardships, yet among all of these she was never known to grumble or find fault with her lot, and she and her noble husband went hand in hand through all of these trials and succeeded in acquiring to themselves quite a fortune.  Oh, how earnestly she might have desired to live on to enjoy the fruits of her many years of hard toil and anxiety had this been the will of God; but she was entirely resigned, hopeful and cheerful in view of the change.  When asked by Rev. Myers a few days before her death, if she dreaded to die, she replied “All is well with me; the way before me is bright and clear; there is not a cloud to be seen.”  We can say of her as a wife she was very affectionate and a good helpmate; as a mother she was tender and loving toward her children, striving to bring them up the way that they should go; and succeeded in so doing for they are all highly estimable people.  She was loved by all of them and by all who knew her.  For many years she had been a member of the M. E. Church; was one of the active members and supporters.  She gave very liberally to the church and to the poor, and was a woman of estimable qualities of mind and heart.  One by one the ripe sheaves are being gathered by the reapers.  Thus triumphantly she passed through the pearly gates and entered the “beautiful city” to receive a crown of life that fadeth not away.  The funeral was held at the Baptist Church in Roseville on Friday, Dec. 18, 1800, Rev. Paul Smith, officiating.
