Joyce's Search Tip - November 2008
Do You Know that you can search just the 700 pages of School Records on the site  by using the Schools button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page?  You can narrow your search by entering a township name and a surname and using the Find All Words option
Covington High School graduated classes from 1893 to 1957. These lists are from the alumni association. They include people who were in the Covington area but who attended North Penn High School at Blossburg  after Covington High School consolidated with Blossburg. Once Mansfield High School opened in 1912, some Covington students attended classes there for their senior year and graduated from both schools. Esther Mays Harer typed these lists for us.

I hope that all are listed by their own names, but if there are cases where a person is listed with married alias only, please let me know so I can correct it.

I am adding obituaries where I have them. There may be more obits already on the site which you may hunt down and copy and paste in an email to me so I can add them to the appropriate class list. Or you may have obits not already on the site which we would like to have. Just type them into an email to me -joycetice@aol.con or The more of you who help with this, the better it will be.

When Train Struck Car At Main Street Crossing
Mrs. Maude Robbins Schultz and Glenn Martin , of Blossburg were killed at about 10:30 a.m. Monday when the car in which they were riding was struck by a locomotive of the Bloss Division of the Erie Railroad at the Main street crossing.  Mr. Martin, brother of Roy D. Martin of Horseheads, was being driven home from a physicians office by Mrs. Schultz, a neighbor.  A.E. Parks of Hornell, engineer of the train, told Jack Van Dyke, investigating Blossburg police chief, that he had blown a whistle for the crossing, which is unguarded.  He said Mrs., Schultz apparently did not see the train in time and then tried to beat it across the tracks.  Mrs. Schultz was killed instantly: Mr. Martin died shortly after arrival of a physician.  The train hit the Schultz car on the side in which Mr. Martin was riding.  He was thrown from the demolished car while Mrs. Schultz was carried along in the wreckage.

Mrs. Schultz (Maude E. Robbins), widow of Alfred Schultz, was born in Covington, daughter of Mr. and Mr. Frank Robbins.  She was a member of the Methodist Church.  Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Robert Stradley, of Elmira, Mrs. Fred Miller, of Endicott, two sons, Howard and Harold, of Elmira; two sisters, Mrs. Mervin Bement, of Montour Falls, N.Y.; Mrs. Clarence Seeley, of Canton; two brothers, Earl Robbins of Rochester, and Mark Ayres, of Canton; and five grandchildren.  (The accident was 10/24/1949 and burial was in Arbon cemetery)
