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.

WATSON, IDA ROSE (SRGP 06570)
The subject of this sketch was born in Rutland township, now Roseville borough, on July 17, 1854, and was the eldest of six children born to Daniel and Clarina Watson, both deceased. Her childhood and adult years were passed with her parents until their decease, to whom she was always a dutiful and loving daughter, affectionately ministering to their wants during all their declining years, and afterwards, with her brother, D. E. Watson, helping to maintain the old home, which has always been a mecca to many a wayfarer. Being the eldest of the children she early learned to assume responsibilities and cares, to which she never afterwards was a stranger. Early in her adult life she became a Christian and uniting with the local Baptist church by baptism, she was ever consistent in her life with the profession she had made, striving always to follow in the footsteps of the Master whom she loved to serve, and being always instant in season and out of season. Many times has the remark been made of her: If ever there was a Christian, she is one. Being largely endowed with that rare commodity, common sense, her counsel was often eagerly sought and cheerfully given to all who felt their need of it, and no one was better qualified to assist in the transacting of many varieties of business. Her former pastor, while delivering his sermon at her funeral, made the statement that whenever he felt borne down with cares and trials which sometimes would hedge his way, he would say: Well, I will go and talk with Ida about it, and would go away relieved of his burden. Truly, one of Gods chosen one has gone home. In the community, in her large circle of friends, and in the church, there is a vacancy that cannot be filled, and to her sister, Mrs. Henry H. Smith; to her brother, D. E. Watson; to Russel Watson, for whom she has cared, and been a mother since his early infancy, and to her nephew and nieces, has come an irreparable loss. Surely, we humbly and sincerely thank God for Ida, for her unblemished life, for her Christian character, and for her Christian influence and example, which she always unconsciously exerted. (Cant read next line) great desire to hear Billy Sunday, she went, on Saturday, April 4, to Scranton, and, after securing a boarding place, went in the evening to attend service in the Sunday tabernacle. She returned, after the service, to her boarding place, and, feeling very much fatigued, and complaining of a pain in her left side, said she would retire, remarking she though she would feel better after resting, requesting that she be called by 8:30 oclock in the morning so she could attend the service. Not hearing anything from her, the lady of the house rapped at her door, and getting no response pushed it open and found her apparently sleeping. Approaching her and placing her hand upon her face, she found she was dead. Truly, she had gone to sleep on earth to awaken in Heavenan end she had earnestly desired, and coming apparently without suffering. Her funeral was held from her late home on Thursday, April 9, at 11 oclock a.m. her former pastor, the Rev. Seymour Barrett, officiating, taking for his text, She is not dead but sleepeth. Luke 8:52. He was assisted by the Revs. Johnson and ?uscomb, and notwithstanding the almost impassable condition of the roads, the large attendance of saddened and sorrowing people attested the high esteem in which she was held.

NOTE from JOYCE - Obit gives Millerton at home as place of death, but these obituaries are notoriously unreliable by calling the whole LARGE area serviced by Millerton PO as Millerton when it includes many other communities that still have good names.

WHEELER, Francis - (SRGP 01971)
MEET DEATH ON CROSSING WHEN HIT BY ERIE TRAIN
WHO WITNESSED COUPLE ON TRACK
Stories of those near scene corroborate affidavit made by Charles Decker,
Gateman, concerning double tragedy.
Twenty four hours and the questioning in the investigation of a number of witnesses by Chief of Police, Elvin D. Weaver, while it has served to round up many loose ends in the evidence, has failed to produce any explanation of the precise and actual manner in which F.B. Wheeler, 74, and Mrs Lillian Kendall, 63 of 408 West Second street came to be in the path of the eastbound Erie freight train at the Church street crossing on Tuesday evening, receiving injuries that resulted in instantaneous death.
According to Charles Decker of 110 West Gray street, the gateman, whose testimony is corroborated by other witnesses, the gates at that point were raised a sufficient time between the passage of the westbound train and the arrival of the eastbound one to allow the couple time to get across the tracks.
A statement obtained by Chief Weaver from a woman on Wednesday substantiated, in the ~ majority of details, that of Mr. Decker. The woman, however, told of seeing the aged couple standing on the south side of Church street on east side of the crossing, while the west-bound train passed and when the gates were raised with apparent intention of going over the crossing. The witness stated that she crossed the tracks and had gone just beyond the crossing when the bell rang and the gates were again lowered for the approaching eastbound train.. The train began to pass over the crossing and a moment later she saw the body of Mr. Wheeler lying near the tracks, she stated to Chief Weaver.
Mr Decker, in his statement, declared that the southside of Church street is invisible from his tower and that the first intimation of the tragedy he received came when the eastbound train stopped after the engine had passed over the Church street crossing.
The only theory which police have been able to advance to account for the death of Mr. Wheeler and Mrs Kendall is that because of their age and enfeebled health of Mr. Wheeler, they were delayed in going over the tracks and the whistle of the approaching locomotive, the ringing of the bell and the lowering of the gates bewildered them and caused them to stand directly in the path of the train, Mr. Decker stated also in his affidavit, given to Chief Weaver, that when he lowered the crossing gates the train was just passing over First street crossing one block away.
