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.

PEAKE ROSS
Wellsboro Gazette, Tioga, PA-- Thursday, February 10, 1916
Peculiar Accident Takes Life of Ross Peake, a Native of Wellsboro
Ross Peake, aged 27 years, a native of Wellsboro, a brakeman on the Pennsylvania railroad, was killed on Sunday evening at an early hour, when the train on which he was working broke in two about a mile south of Troy, on the Northern Central railroad.  No one else was injured, although other members of the crew were badly shaken up and several cars were wrecked.   The break occurred on what is known as the Troy Hill, a long steep incline, which leads into the town of Troy.  The two sections were coming down the hill at fast speed and the engineer seeing the second section gaining speed with every turn of the wheels, opened up and tried to draw away, but before he could get a lead the onrushing section crashed into the first section.  Peake was on the first car of the second section.  The car was a gondola, loaded with coal, and he was forward trying futiley to set the hand brake and reduce its terrific speed.  When the second section crashed into the first, the gondola was smashed into pieces.  so heavy was the shock, Peake was hurled to the ditch alongside the track and covered with coal and debris from the car.    According to the stories told, the conductor of the wrecked train shouted from the caboose, several cars in the rear, to Peake to jump, but the brakeman either did not hear, or feared to chance it.   The second section caught up to the first right in the heart of the town of Troy and directly in front of the Troy station.  The crash was heard for a long distance and the entire town turned out to see the excitement.  Cries were heard for a moment or two alongside the wrecked gondola, which was only one of several cars to be broken up, but when the workers finally uncovered the body, Peake was dead.  He was lying on his face and had apparently been smothered.  Peake had been in the railroad business for two years and had been employed on the Northern Central for two months.  He was unmarried.   Mr Peake was a son of Elijah Peake of Maple Hill who survives.  Also survive:  William of round top; Elijah, Milton and Llewellyn at home.  The remains were brought here Tuesday noon and the funeral was held yesterday afternoon from the home of the father of the deceased.
