Mourey Cemetery List 2007

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.

DEATH OF DANIEL MOUREY (submitted by Dale Ellen Bailey, Santa Rosa, CA)
Farmington's Oldest and Best Known Resident Called to His Final Home.
Farmington, July 31.--Daniel Mourey died last week Tuesday evening after an illness of several months.  He was born in Danville, Mountour county, Pa., April 19, 1813, and therefore was in the 95th year of his age.

Mr. Mourey came to Farmington with his parents when he was 16 years of age. In 1835 he was united in marriage to Martha Eliza House and settled on the farm in this township, then a dense wilderness, where he spent the remainder of his life.  Four children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Mourey, two of whom survive: Ira H. Mourey, who lives on the old homestead and faithfully cared for his father during his declining years, and Mrs. Nancy Cloos.  He is also survived by one brother, Henry Mourey, of Nelson, and three sisters; Mrs. Molly Russell, of Farmington; Mrs. Effie Manley, of Albany, N.Y. and Mrs. Eliza Dailey, of Elkland, all of whom are past 75 years.  Fourteen grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren also survive him.

Mr. Mourey, or "Uncle Daniel" as he was familiarly known, always enjoyed excellent health until February last, when he suffered an attack of grip, which weakened his rugged constitution.  Since that time he had.............until the end came last Tuesday night.  He retained all his mental faculties up to the last moment and assured his friends and relatives that he was ready to meet his Maker, and wanted to go.  During his prolonged illness and suffering he was never heard to murmur or complain, but was always cheerful and perfectly resigned to the final call.

In politics Mr. Mourey was a life long Democrat and was always true to the principles of his party.  He was a man of sterling qualities and was looked up to with respect by all who knew him, and he had a wide acquaintance in this section of the country.  Mr. Mourey was frequently consulted by his friends and neighbors when they wanted a word of advice or counsel.  He was kind and generous and never refused to aid or assist the needy or deserving.  Uncle Daniel Mourey was truly a good man.

Funeral services were held at the house on Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the large attendance of friends and neighbors was evidence of the esteem and respect in which the deceased was held.  The services were conducted by Mrs. Alice Snyder, assisted by Rev. Charles Weeks, of Osceola.  Interment in the Mourey cemetery.
