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.

CORNING MAN ENDS HIS LIFE
Corning—George William ST. JAMES, 64, Riverside, died at the Corning Hospital at 12:05 a.m. Sunday from injuries inflicted late Saturday afternoon when he discharged a shotgun into his mouth during a fit of despondency brought on by prolonged illness.  He remained conscious for more than 20 minutes, explaining that he "did not want to stay around any longer." It is believed that the suicide attempt was planned well in advance. Mr. St. James was the victim of diabetes and had been ill for about three years. He maintained a chicken farm near his home but recently had been able to devote but little time to this business. He was confined to his bed Thursday and Friday and was attended by his housekeeper. While the housekeeper was in this city she called at the office of Dr. C. J. Tomer, 71 Bridge Street, to discuss her employer’s case. The physician agreed to call upon the patient at once and after his visitor departed he went to the St. James home, arriving at 4:10 p.m. Entering, he found Mr. St. James seated on a chair, his head held above a tin pail into which blood was flowing from a head wound. He was removed to the hospital where he became unconscious. At the hospital he was treated by Dr. Stephen V. Collins who strove vainly to save the patient’s life. Death came shortly after midnight while Mr. St. James was surrounded by members of his family. He leaves four sons, Olin, Riverside; Floyd, Bristol, Conn; Thelbert, Addison and Lewis,Berwick, Pa., and two daughters, Mrs. Roy Brownell, Addison and Miss Louise St. James, Berwick. He is also survived by his father, Morris St. James, Jewett, Pa., a brother Homer, Roseville and a sister Mrs. Etta Bierman, Williamsport.

In the night of June 9th, 1904, Henry SHERMAN, of Rutland, Pa. (SRGP 13605)
In the bloom of youth was snatched away
By Death’s resistless hand.
In the soft season of his youth—in Nature’s early smiling bloom,
After 18 years had passed along, he was summoned to the silent tomb.

In the morn of his life, so fair and gay,
So cheerful and so bright,
With bright hopes to illumine each opening day,
He tried to keep the bright side in sight.

Before the shades of sorrow found
The sunshine of his days,
And cares and toil, in endless round,
Encompassed all his ways.

Before his heart the woes of age with vain regret did deplore,
He did improve his morn of life to spend its evening on the other shore.

He was a youth devoted to the Lord, his life was pleasing in our eyes;
A flower was offered while in the bud, but as no vain sacrifice.

Early in life’s young days
He sought wisdom’s peaceful ways,
And did walk the path of truth;
He was a kind and loving youth,
From his life did streams of purest pleasure flow;
Within his life did honors bloom and virtues grow.

He loved his stepmother, to him so dear;
He tried hard to please her while he was here.
He was to his father a loving, obedient son,
And by his kindness his brother and sister’s love won.

Hiss associates loved his affable way,
He was the life of their sports and play.
In his love and respect he was honest and true,
And in their friendship and confidence he grew.

In God’s own word his way is sure,
And clear to every eye;
It led him in a path secure
To a bright world on high.

He died in Jesus, and is blessed
How peaceful his slumbers are;
From suffering and from sin released,
And freed from every snare.

Far from this world of toil and strife,
He’s joined the angel band,
And, as he often said in his life;
“Some day, mother, we’ll understand.”

He has gone to the grave; you can no longer behold him, your joy and pride,
Nor walk the rough path of life by his side;
But the wide arms of mercy are spread to enfold thee,
And the lamp of God’s love will be thy guide, so your way to him you can see.

The last sad rites were held in the Roseville Baptist Church, bedecked with flowers grand,
Sent from far and near by some kind and loving hand.
The pall-bearers were young men whom he had always knew;
The flower-bearers were girls of his life-long acquaintance, too;
Rev. L. M. Gates officiated, of Mansfield, Pa.,
A large concourse of people gathered their last tribute to pay.

He was laid to rest in the Watson burial ground;
His last resting place on earth is now represented by a mound.
