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.

Jefferson Harrison, Esq., died at his residence, corner of Central Avenue and Pearl Street, Sunday morning [12/27/1903] about 5 o'clock after an illness of several weeks, of cancer of the stomach. He was in his 66th year and was one of Wellsboro's most prominent and best known citizens. Jefferson Harrison was born in Wellsboro, July 24, 1838. His father, William Harrison, came from New Jersey to Wellsboro in 1833. Mr Harrison received his education in the common schools and at the "Old Academy," so fondly remembered by the older inhabitants of this borough. In the winter of 1857, while Mr. Harrison was in Northern Minnesota engaged in surveying for the Hudson Bay Company, he was taken sick with typhoid fever. During his illness in a camp in the wilderness both of his feet were badly frozen, necessitating the amputation of both members. Soon after returning home in 1862 he began to read law in the office of the late Hon. Henry Sherwood, and was admitted to the bar in 1864. He at once entered on his profession, which he had since followed and was known as one of the ablest members of the Tioga County bar. Mr. Harrison possessed marked natural ability for the profession of the law, which had been highly trained and developed by many years of rigid application and successful practice. He had attained a prominent place in the legal arena in this section of the State as a counselor and as a corporation attorney. As a lawyer, his strongest traits of character were his honesty, his sound knowledge of the law, his good judgement of men and facts and his logical presentation of a legal proposition in behalf of his client. At the time of his death, Mr Harrison held many important positions of trusts for railroad and coal companies. He was connected with the Pine Creek Railway Company for many years and had been president of that company since 1897. He was also secretary and treasurer of the Wellsboro Water Company, an enterprize in which he took great personal pride in its development and improvements. ... The deceased is survived by his wife and one son, Mark, aged about 11 years. One brother, Leonard Harrison, and one sister, Sarah Harrison, survive him. Funeral services were held at the house on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. A. C. Shaw officiating. ... Wellsboro Cemetery.

HASTINGS - Nearly three weeks ago Mrs. Clarence [Mary C.] W. Webb,
wife of Dr. C. W. Webb, was taken ill. Her trouble was pronounced peritonitis.
The attack did not appear severe and the sufferer appeared to be on the road to
recovery. Early last Monday morning she awoke with a scream and complained of
excruciating pains. An examination was immediately made by her husband, who
discovered that she could not live but a few hours. It was a terrible
discovery, and the Doctor at once sent for Dr. R. B. Smith, of Tioga. That
gentleman arrived soon after, but could give the sorrowing husband no hope. The
disease was beyond human skill and death must soon ensue. This sad intelligence
was imparted to the sufferer, who was steadily growing weaker. She had her
three little boys brought to her bedside, and informed them that they would
soon be without a mother. The parting was peculiarly sad, and those present
could not repress their tears. She lingered until one o’clock Tuesday morning,
when she peacefully died. Death in any form brings its burden of sadness, but
the weight of sorrow is increased when a young mother who had always been the
picture of health is compelled to part with her husband and little ones. It is
an event which casts a gloom over the community. Mrs. Webb was born in this
borough and was the youngest daughter of Mr. H. S. Hastings. She was 32 years
of age, and was united in marriage to Dr. C. W. Webb about ten years ago.
“Mame” Webb was an estimable lade, generous to a fault, possessed a happy
disposition and a devoted wife and mother. The bereaved husband and family, who
are bowed down with grief, have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon at four o’clock from the residence on
Water Street. Rev. A. W. Snyder officiated. The members of the High School
graduating class, to which Mrs. Webb belonged, sent a handsome basket of
flowers to the house - their last offering to a former classmate so suddenly
stricken by death. - Wellsboro Gazette, 1 October 1891
