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.

MOORE ESTHER
DIED IN WELLSBORO. Esther Moore, The Granddaughter of Early Settler of Chemung. In Wellsboro, Pa., July 20, 1917, passed to the after life, in the seventy-ninth year of her age, Esther Moore, granddaughter of one of the first settlers of Chemung county, New York. She was a true friend, faithful & conscientious in all things, one of the few of whom it can be truthfully said, was a faithful follower of Christ, literally living out her long life in accordance with his teachings. Although it was not her privilege to be a mother, yet fate gave her the opportunity to perform this mission for a family of orphan children. No real mother ever had the life interests of her children more at heart then had she, & no mother was more tenderly loved & cared for than she by her foster children. The following poem, written & sent to her, by a cousin of hers, upon the occasion of her last birthday, gives a brief story of her life.

ODE TO A NOBLE WOMAN
Some seventy years ago to-day a little girl baby came this way. To gladden the hearts of her parents so dear & make them feel happy that she was here. Large blue eyes & beautiful hair & a disposition very rare. In fact, I think I am safe to say that to narrow, mean thoughts she would always say nay. This baby grew as babies do & not without her troubles too. For in early childhood the angel-land called her mother to join their band. And from that time on it is hard to tell of all the hardships she knew so well. But only God & the angels knew of all that tried her heart so true. She grew to womanhood, well & strong, always helping the world along. Then made a home for her father dear & cheered his heart for many a year. With love & kindness & gentle tone, until the angels called him home. And even then, she was not through, there was much work still for her to do. She did it too, & stands today esteemed by all who come her way. She is always true blue - you will find her the same, for Esther Moore is this woman’s name. We love her for all she has done for this world; her heart is true & her life is gold. For her a reward nest soon be in sight & God & the angels will make it right. - Written by Judson Lake & Ada (Moore) Hunt. Esther Moore is buried in Whitneyville Cemetery, Whitneyville, Pa. next to her father Asa Moore.
