New Dartt Settlement Cemetery Listing 2005

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.

AUSTIN Leroy Gilbert
Wellsboro Agitator – December 29, 1937

Mr. Rozel BAILEY (SRGP 16672)
It is with feelings of deep regret that we announce the death of Mr. Rozel Bailey, one of the earliest and most respectable inhabitants in this county.  As he was returning homewards on the 23d ult. with a two-horse team loaded with heavy iron castings for a saw mill, the horses, in the neighborhood of “Daggett’s Hollow,” ran off, Mr. Bailey, it seems, was sitting upon the wagon when it broke to pieces, and no doubt was dragged a considerable distance before the horses became disengaged from the fragments of the wreck.  The body was taken up a short time after, but the vital spark had fled to Him who gave it.  The remains, on the Monday following, were followed to the grave by a large concourse of citizens, who seemed deeply affected by the melancholy catastrophe, which has taken from our society a worthy member and much beloved neighbor. (Wednesday, November 4, 1840, Tioga Eagle, Wellsborough, Tioga Co, Pa.)
