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.

McCLEAN - This was a newspaper article filed with Jennie Mcleans obit.This would be on Jennies father in law, written by his daughter Barbara McLean Robena. Charles McLean is also buried at Sebring.

Father is Gone.
In affectionate rememberance of Charles McLean, of Liberty, who died July 26, 1908
When the morning sun riseth gently.
 In the heavens so bright and clear,
filling all the world with beauty .
 Then we miss you, father dear.
Sitting by the open window
Looking toward the sunrise gold,
We are thinking of you, father,
and happy days of old.
Happy were the hours, dear father,
with you as a trusty guide,
But your voice is lost forever
In the dashing of the tide.
Gently came the pale - faced rider
Calling sweetly from afar.
Bring home your spirit, father,
Through the pearly gates ajar.
With loving hearts, dear father,
We will try to follow you,
Hoping when we meet in heaven
All our pleasures to renew.
Rest,dear father, Jesus keeps you,
with a kind and loving hand,
Close beside the sparkling waters
In that bright and better land.
Mrs Barbara Robena,
Arnot, Pa.
