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.

Nancy Wilson of Stony Fork found dead Tues. Night [June 4, 1963]
Missing since Monday; Body discovered by Sister; Kemp investigates
The body of Nancy Wilson, 18, of Stony Fork, daughter of Mrs. Thelma Wilson, was discovered by her sister, Sandy, 20, at approximately 6 o'clock Tuesday evening. According to Trooper Stella of the Mansfield State Police who investigated the case, she had been reported missing at 8 a.m. Tuesday and was last seen alive late Monday night at her brother's trailer not far from her home. An all-day search was carried on followed by the discovery of the body wedged against a log at the foot of a 15-foot bank that drops away some four feet from the house. The girl had been calling at the trailer home of her brother James situated only about 100 feet from her own house, it is said. According to one theory of the police, she walked along the bank after leaving the trailer. Although there is a creek along the bottom of the bank, the body was found at least eight feet from the edge of the water. Attorney Robert Kemp who lives near the Wilson home was notified after the body was found and he immediately initiated an investigation and ordered an autopsy which was conducted Wednesday afternoon by a pathologist from Williamsport.
