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.

In this line of duty was one of 12 men who volunteered to open and investigate German gas bombs and shells, as extremely hazardous undertaking with a huge ratio of chances against success. Soon after doing this work his health began to decline, due to the nervous strain as well as from fumes of the gasses, against some of which masks were of little benefit at close quarters.

Editorially speaking: Her wisdom and kindness and the inspiration with which she charged most ordinary studies have given Miss Mack a permanent and distinguished place in the recollections and affections of the thousands of students who went to school to her. In school, and school was her life, she asked each student for his best and for her no amount of effort was too great to try and make the best worthwhile. Her philosophic asides on all aspects of life and her dry humor brightened he classes and her chapel remarks, and her Latin and English students, Particularly those who went on to college, all came to realize the value of her insistance on careful, understanding work on these subjects. Along with her amazingly wide knowledge in a variety of fields, Miss Mack had a permanent searching interest in the spiritual side of life and disciplined herself strictly according to her understanding of what this life should be. Because of these qualities her students, friends and fellow workers in church and community sought her judgement on many matters, certain that her advice would be sound and fair and helpful. Socially, her company was invariably interesting, since she shared her knowledge without pretension. there was no one quite like Miss Mack.

MARCH Mary Louise
Wellsboro Gazette Editorial – July 23, 1964
Wreath for Louise March
It is saddening to find suddenly in a brief, cold newspaper obituary, the name of one who not so long ago was known by everyone in Wellsboro, and probably, all through the county. But the years hasten by and a woman of 91 is unknown to the younger generation and is only a vague and fond memory to the older. Miss Louise March is gone. There are many, one supposes, who, if they thought of her at all fancied she had died years ago, for she had of necessity lived in her old age away from her friends and home. Back before most of us remember at all, "Lou" March had a dress shop in Wellsboro later she was partner in a store widely known as Mathers and March which went out of business in the '30's. That is merely a fact which tells how she earned her livelihood. It tells nothing of the affectionate respect and admiration with which she was regarded by all who knew her. Residents of the community who were children when Miss March was actively engaged in town affairs remember with delight the little stories they heard of her many quiet kindnesses and have cherished them - and her - in their hearts to this day. She was a woman of great charm as well as business acumen. She was enormously interested in Wellsboro and its progress. In fact, we are told that she served on the committee headed by C. E. Bennett which was instrumental in the Corning Glass Works coming here. Too, it is believed she was the first woman to have been elected to the Wellsboro School Board on which she served for many terms. Interest in education must have been a family trait for her brother was a distinguished county superintendent of schools. She was, in addition, a charter member of the Wellsboro Business and Professional Women's Club and the Eastern Star. Louise March was generous to a fault, quick to learn of the sorrows and needs of others and equally quick to dig deep into her own purse and her own reserve of practical sympathy to assist where she could. We have been told again and again today of the constant gifts which had she not scattered so generously on the waters of life which many found rough and cold, would have made the years of her old age more comfortable. That, perhaps, is not really true. So full and rich a life of giving and doing must have been a great solace during the last years when she had seen the close associates and friends she cherished slip away. Lou March has left a heritage to the citizens of Wellsboro, which not tangible, is yet part of the community’s good life.

MASTIN Charlotte E. (SRGP 87642) - A Bright
Life Ended - Sad Death of Dr. Charlotte E. Mastin, an Estimable Young Lady
Seldom has the announcement of a death caused more genuine sorrow here than that of Dr. Charlotte E. Mastin, which occurred at Buffalo last Saturday afternoon. Dr. Mastin has been in poor health for several months, but it was not generally known until last week that serious results were apprehended. Two weeks ago Miss Mastin decided to go to Buffalo to receive special treatment for her trouble, from which she had failed to gain relief. She was accompanied by her father, Dr. N.W. Mastin. After spending a few days with her friend, Dr. Marjorie Potter, at Niagara Falls, she went to the General Hospital in Buffalo. Several skilled physicians who diagnosed her condition ?? ?? ?? Dr. Mastin, who had borne her suffering uncomplainingly, upon being advised of the nature of her ailment consented to submit to an operation, notwithstanding she was fully aware of the grave danger owing to heart trouble. She gave some directions and took an active part in preparing for the ordeal. The operation was successfully performed by Dr. Roswell Burke, the noted surgeon who attended President McKinley after he was shot. Owing to her weak heart the patient failed to rally from the shock, passing away about twenty-four hours later. She was conscious up to a few hours before the end came and bade her grief-stricken father a loving farewell. She made all the arrangements for her funeral, naming the gown in which she wished to be buried and also the lady friends whom she desired to arrange her burial robe. Charlotte E. Mastin was born near Moravia, NY and was 33 years of age. He mother died when she was only a few weeks old and she lived with her grandmother until she was six. Later she joined her father in Charleston. She attended the Mansfield Normal School and when her father moved to Wellsboro in 1888 she entered the High School, graduating in 1891. She began the study of medicine, attending several colleges, and graduated from the medical school of the University of Buffalo in 1897. Since that time Dr. Mastin had successfully practiced her profession in Wellsboro. Miss Mastin was possessed of a kind and lovable disposition and was extremely popular with all her associates, both old and young. She was thoroughly devoted to her younger sisters since the death of their mother. Always congenial with her many friends and had a kind act for those who needed it. Funeral services were held from the house on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Joseph Dennis officiating. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. - Wellsboro Gazette, May 25, 1905, p.4
