Tioga County Obits of World War One Military
Blossburg Boys Arrive Home
Raymond Lawrence Guernsey, who has been overseas for thirteen months arrived home Tuesday.  Mr. Guernsey was captured by the Germans and held prisoner for eight months, working nearly twenty-four hours a day and living on very poor and scanty food.  He has some very interesting experiences to relate.  Mr. Guernsey has the distinction of being the only Tioga county man to be held prisoner b the Germans.  Machine Gunner Glen Ellis, of the famous 77th, arrived home Tuesday, after seeing thirteen months service in France.  Mr. Ellis was wounded in the battle of the Argonne Forest.  Fred Bryant arrived home Tuesday after thirteen months service overseas.  Mr. Bryant was severely wounded in the battle at Chateau Thierry.  He was also gassed and was in a hospital for several months.  Sergeant Kimbal Marvin and Frank Roberts arrived home Wednesday evening.  Both men saw some hard fighting in the Argonne Forest.  [undated]

Dear Joyce,

I started reading your latest additions relating to World War I and 1918 news late last night.  I found myself crying aloud while reading them. Most of us can see  dates in a cemetery and think of birth and death, However, your website makes those deaths personal experiences, especially when it comes to our relatives and their neighbors.   People on your pages become living individuals to those of us who never had a chance to meet them during their lifetime.

1918 must have been quite a traumatic time for the tri-county area with young men being lost on the battlefields of foreign shores  and influenza taking the lives of young and old residents at home.

Again, another job well done by you and your wonderful contributors.
