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.

Stonyfork, March 29. — As the shades of evening closed down on the township of Delmar. The people of This locality were discussing by their fireside, matters pertaining to the life and death of one of its most distinguished citizens. I would hesitate to make this assertion if I did not have this opportunity of explaining myself, as I am aware that Delmar has furnished some excellent men who have occupied positions of honor and trust, one of whom has occupied the highest position within the gift of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The subject of my sketch. Miles Steele, who was born a little over 79 years ago, and was the son of Robert and Mary Ann Steele. Who resided about a mile and a quarter from this place, on a farm now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Willis English Nothing out of the ordinary can be said about him. Until at the age of 14 years, when he was seized with an attack of rheumatism. His father consulted specialists in New York and elsewhere, but to no avail. For about two years, Miles walked with crutches, after which a wheel chair was provided for him, and for the balance of his life, which constitutes nearly 65 years, he went about his home in a wheel chair. After the death of his parents, Miles managed the farm for many years that was left to him and his sister. Mary, and then sold his interest to his sister. He was assistant assessor of Delmar Township many years, and gained the acquaintance of nearly every one in the township. He traveled with a horse and buggy all these years  and he was a familiar figure on the streets of Wellsboro in years for  the last twelve years he lived alone near his old home, and he managed his financial affairs so success that he had enough and to spare at the  time of his death  wish all the readers of this article could have known him as well as myself, as I gained his acquaintance in my early childhood years  I have watched his career with no little interest, and often I have looked upon him with pity. But in spite of his afflictions no one ever heard him complain about his condition, even though he only had the partial use of one arm much could be written about him. But this article would be very incomplete without mentioning the fact he  was humorous, kind and cheerful  and will be missed most by those who knew him best Even the children of that locality saw that his coal buckets  were well filled, and placed near his stove, in order that he would not lack the attention.  Needed to keep him comfortable. And to those children who gave him and those children who gave him such good attention, I wish to express my appreciation for the kind treatment they gave my good friend,  Miles.

STEELE OTIS G
Otis G. Steele. Aged 85 years, died at his Delmar township farm last Thursday 13 August 1942 of a heart attack.  He was born in Delmar the youngest of eleven children of Robert and Mary Ann Blackwell Steele and had devoted most of his life to farming, except for an interval of railroad work in his earlier years.  The funeral was held Sunday at the home.
