Middlebury Union Cemetery Listing 2007


More Obits


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.

Wellsboro Gazette, Tioga, PA--Thursday, April 9, 1914
Gardner Andrews Takes His Life By Hanging--Son Attempts Suicide.  Lynn Andrews, of Coudersport, a former resident of this county, is detained in Bellevue Hospital in NY City as an attempted suicide. During his residence at Coudersport, he had charge of the agency of R D Owen, a piano dealer at Mansfield. While employed in this capacity his accounts with Mr Owen were found irregular and Mr Owen caused Andrews arrest on the charge of embezzlement.  The trouble was, however, amicably adjusted, the young man never being brought to trial. After leaving Coudersport, Andrews took a position with the Singer Sewing Machine Co. in NY City, and his bondsman in Coudersport was informed last Thursday of an apparent defalcation in his accounts with the Singer Co. which may have been instrumental in inducing the young man to attempt suicide by cutting his throat, for which he is now detained. Within a few days of the attempted suicide of young Andrews as above reported, word was received here of the suicidal death in Keeneyville last Saturday afternoon of Gardner Andrews, the young man's father. Soon after dinner, Mr Andrews went to a small barn some distance from the house and that was the last time he was seen alive. About 3 o'clock the son went to the barn and found the lifeless body of his father hanging suspended from a rafter. A clothesline had been used to make a noose about the neck after being thrown over the rafter. Until a few months ago the deceased had been a resident of Tioga, being employed by a patent medicine company as a traveling salesman. Shortly after the arrest of the son on the charge of embezzlement as above set forth, Mr Andrews left the county very suddenly without informing his employers as to his purpose. Later developments disclosed the fact that in his endeavor to assist his son, in a financial way and keep him our of jail, the father had become involved to a considerable extent with his employers and being pressed for a settlement of accounts, was forced to leave this section to avoid a prosecution. He located in Center county and was later joined by his wife. His personal financial obligations, however, together with his son's disgrace, had evidently preyed upon his mind until he became morose and melancholy, a mental condition which was probably further developed when he returned to this county last Thursday to visit his son, Glen Andrews at Keeneyville. His unfortunate state of mind was at once apparent to the members of his son's family but they were not prepared for the rash act which brought about his untimely death. Funeral services were held at the home of Glen Andrews on Tuesday.
