Fulton Street Cemetery Listing
Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008 

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. Please send in typed obituaries for people buried in our local cemeteries. If possible include name of newspaper and date. Send typed in your email or in attached Word files. Send to Joyce M.

LOGAN - A BOY BEHEADED - Twelve-year-old Johnnie LOGAN, son of Northern Central engineer John LOGAN of 420 Jefferson street, jumped on an Erie freight train near the Southport coal pockets Wednesday and started to ride towards the city. When he attempted to get off below the Central junction he fell under the wheels and had his head cut off, one arm broken and was otherwise mangled, his head being smashed to a pulp. The train was stopped and the body was sent over to the Erie depot where the body was placed in the oil room and the coroner notified. An affecting scene occurred when the boy's father reached the oil room and recognized his son's head.

Funeral of Johnnie LOGAN Who Was Killed by the Cars Wednesday - The funeral of little Johnnie LOGAN who was killed by the cars last Wednesday, was held from the family residence 420 Jefferson street Friday afternoon, a number of friends and relatives attended and assisted in the solemn ceremonies over the remains. The boy's untimely end brought a pang of sorrow to every kindly heart and the scene at the house was so sad and pitiful, that few who were present will ever forget it. The floral offerings were very beautiful and consisted of a large floral pillow presented by Miss BRADY, and the scholars of the sixth grade of No. 3 school, a design of roses from the playmates of the deceased, floral basket, from Mrs. C. C. HARPER, Mrs. J. P. SMITH and Mrs. John FINLAY, jr. A quartette sang sweetly several selections and Rev. Dr. JENNINGS conducted the services. The interment was in Fulton street cemetery, and the bearers of the casket were Masters Ralph HARPER, Frank FINLAY, Curtis OLDHAM and Willie WARNOCK.

Obituary: The funeral of Peter McCaffery will take place at 10:00 am at the residence 558 South Main Street . He will be buried at the Fulton Street Cemetery.
Hi Joyce, Here is the obituary for Peter McCaffrey (spelled many ways). You don't have him listed on your site as being buried in that cemetery (maybe the tombstone is missing). He had two wives. 1st Isabella Hall, 2nd Celestia Arnold. Peter was born  in Ireland. He lived at one time in Scotland and from Scotland came to the USA. He is not directly related to me, but his sister-in-law is. Donna Judge

REES and CARTER - Death of Mr. and Mrs. John W. REES, An aged and Respected Couple Gone to Their Rest. - Particularly sad are the deaths of these estimable old people coming as they do so close together. Within a period of three days both husband and wife have been called away. John W. REES was born in Philadelphia in 1810, and at his death was seventy-seven years eight months and seven days old. He was the son of Thomas REES, a sea captain, and during his youth made several voyages to the old country in company with his father. Early in life he came to Elmira, where he met and married Miss Sarah CARTER, who survived him only three days. The funeral services of Mr. REES were observed Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, from the home of his son, William H. REES, 227 Franklin street, and were conducted by the Rev. A. J. KENYON, of the Centenary M. E. church. Mr. KENYON's text was: "I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, from henceforth." The pastor's remarks were very appropriate, often touching upon the upright, Christian life of the deceased man. A choir composed of Messrs. LACOST and HOBLER and Misses Mary FORRESTER and Jennie BURTOFF beautifully rendered "Asleep in Jesss," "Go Bury Thy Sorrow," and "My Latest Sun is Sinking Fast." How little they, who saw the bereaved widow as she was drawn in an easy chair up to the side of the casket, that she might taka a last loving look at the face of him who had been her companion through life, realized that the sun of her life was fast setting behind the hills of eternity. How little they thought that ere the light of another day her spirit would have winged its flight to join the one gone before. Mrs. REES's death occurred Thursday morning at 4 o'clock, suddenly, yet seemingly without pain. She was seventy-five years, three months and twenty-six days old. Of their three children but the son survives them. One daughter, Mrs. Emma C. ALLEN, died in Ohio in 1864, and the other, Mrs. H. E. JONES, died in this city in 1885. Besides the son Mrs. REES leaves a brother and sister, Alvah S. CARTER, of this city, and Mrs. Rhoda LUTES, of Loda, Ill. Mrs. REES had lived in Elmira since 1824. Both she and her husband were members of the Centenary church, being amoung the first to identify themselves with that organization. The funeral of Mrs. REES occurred yesterday afternoon at 3:30, interment being in the Southport cemetery. At the funeral sevices the same choir rendered the same muic as that sung at the funeral of Mr. REES, performed the same last rites for Mrs. REES. The remarks of Rev. Mr. KENYON were beautiful and very touching.
