Do You Know that you can search just the Obituaries on the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? You can narrow your search by including a key word in the cemetery name or a township name in addition to the surname you search. Then select the Find All Words option. 
You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using Clippings partition. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage, and some other partitions. 

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. Please send in typed obituaries for people buried in our local cemeteries. If possible include name of newspaper and date. Send typed in your email or in attached Word files. Send to Joyce M. Tice (JoyceTice@aol.com)

GAMBLE - Dr. Thomas Andrew Gamble - (1915) In the picturesque village of East Troy lived a gentleman well known throughout Western Bradford County for his genial nature and for his skill and success as a practicing physician. “Doctor Tom,” as he was called, was of Irish-German descent and the youngest son of Andrew and Rebecca Derflinger Gamble. He first saw the light of day March 9, 1845, on Babbs Creek, Tioga County, Pa. where he spent the greatest part of his boyhood days. When he was about two years of age his father died, leaving a family of five children, two girls and three boys to the care of a kind Christian mother. Mrs. Gamble subsequently married Gates Wilcox, a noted lumberman and mill builder of the West Branch and a few years afterward the family moved to Franklin, Bradford county where Thomas grew to vigorous manhood, his time being spent between the farm and saw mill. Upon the call of President Lincoln for troops to put down the rebellious, Thomas, then a lad of sixteen, went to Canton, offered his services as a volunteer, was accepted, and about to take his departure for the land of Dixie when his mother found him and took him home. A more disappointed lad never traveled the Towanda Valley. However, when Lee’s army invaded Pennsylvania he was allowed to go in defense of his country and he served with credit under Captain Webb in Company I, of the Forty-seventh Pennsylvania Militia. After the expiration of his engagement he returned to the farm. His mind was on medicine and having decided upon that profession he entered the Philadelphia Medical College, in which he graduated in 1873. In the spring, 1874, Dr Gamble located at East Troy, where he has since resided and where he built up a very extensive practice. His success as a medical practitioner was wonderful. Of scores of cases of scarlet fever he never lost a patient and only a few of his typhoid and diphtheria cases resulted fatally. Dr Gamble was active, tireless worker and was always willing to respond to the call of the afflicted under all circumstances and conditions. He acted as attending physician at the County House for two or three years, but resigned in order that he might give his entire time to his regular practice.  Dr. Thomas Andrew Gamble was one of a family of physicians. A brother, Dr Manuel Derflinger Gamble (deceased) practiced at Franklin, East Troy and Waverly, NY. Dr. John B Campbell, a celebrated physician of Cincinnati, Ohio was an uncle. Dr Gamble was prominent in Masonic circles, being a member of Trojan Lodge, No 306; of Troy Chapter, No 261, R A M and of Canton Commandery, No 64, Knights Templar. He was also a member of Gustin Post, No 154, G A R and of Hector Lodge, No 166, I O O F. Public spirited, the doctor manifested an active interest in the welfare of his adopted town and was for several years a useful member of the Troy School Board. In 1869 Dr Gamble was united in marriage to Miss Almeda Lloyd of Cedar Run, Pa. up to the time of her death in 1905. Dr Gamble departed Monday morning, Jan 18, 1915 at the age of 69years 10 months and 9 days. Although the doctor practiced nearly to the time of his death he had been a sufferer from chronic diabetes for the past four years and his death, which came suddenly was no surprise to his medical attendants. The funeral services were held at the doctor’s late home Wednesday afternoon at 1 o’clock, the Masons and Odd Fellows in charge, Rev Mr. Moss, Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Troy was the officiating clergyman, and six of the doctor’s nephews acted as pall bearers. The body was laid beside that of Mrs. Gamble in the cemetery.

GROHS - Charles N. Grohs. In the death of Mr. Charles N. Grohs on Thursday, April 12th, Troy has lost another, not only of its oldest, but one of its most highly respected and honorable citizens. Death came from heart trouble, after about nine weeks that he was confined to his bed. The passing away of Mr. Grohs has been noted with sorrow by his many friends in the community and the surrounding country, as he was widely known and respected for his upright character and as a business man of straightforward dealing. He has also been prominent in religious life, and had been in the vestry of St. Paul’s church since its organization. Mr. Grohs was born in Moore township, Northampton County, Pa., March 13th, 1832, and lived with his parents, Isaac and Christianna Wilhelm Grohs, until 1848, when he came to Troy. He secured a position in Viele’s Mills, which are now Dillin’s Mills. After he had mastered the trade he took possession of the mills with a partner under the firm name of Grohs & Eighmey. On account of ill health Mr. Grohs was obliged to give up his business into the grocery business, and for many years conducted in alone. Then he took in E. J. Lee as partner under the firm name of Grohs & Lee, which was dissolved afterwards by the sale of Mr. Lee's interest to C. W. Ballard. The firm of Grohs & Ballard continued for about two years when U. J. Manley brought Mr. Ballard’s interest, Grohs & Manley continuing until 1895, when Mr. Grohs retired, and since has not been engaged in active business. Mr. Grohs was married to Miss Deborah Viele in 1856, who died on June 23rd, 1888. Three children were born to them. Mrs. Minnie Grohs Hoffman of this place, Mr. Charles Viele Grohs of Rochester, and Gordon, who died in childhood.  The funeral services were held at the home on Saturday afternoon, Rev. Chas. H. McKnight officiating, and were largely attended. TGR 1900

GROHS – Charles Viele Grohs - whose death on his 47th birthday, died at the home of his sister, Mrs. F. H. Hoffman, in this boro, September 15th, [1909] was briefly noted last week, was a son of Charles N. and Deborah Viele Grohs. He was born in Troy and lived here until after his graduation from the Troy High School in the Class of ’79. Following a course in the Rochester Business College, he was with the L. S. Graves Elevator Co, Rochester, for sixteen years, much of the time as secretary. At the end of that period through his well-established reputation for painstaking accuracy and integrity, he became the auditor of the Rochester & Eastern Railway. It was while in the discharge of exacting duties of his office three years ago that his health failed through pulmonary tuberculosis. Against the advice of friends and physicians he remained at his post until January, 1907 when he sought relief in a change of climate, first in New Mexico and later in Denver, Florence and Canon City, Colorado, where Mrs. Hoffman joined him early in June. His desire to return to Troy was gratified a month ago and for a time his condition was much improved. His long, brave fight for life ended suddenly at the last. Funeral services were held from the home of his sister at 2 Saturday afternoon, the Rev. Royal K Tucker of St Paul’s Church, of which he was a member, officiating. Interment was in the family plot in Glenwood cemetery.

GROVER - On the evening of Friday, March 6, 2009, Barbara Jane (Grover) McClure of Canton, Pa., diedquietly at the Skilled Nursing Unit of Memorial Hospital in Towanda. She was 87 years of age.  Born Feb. 8, 1922, in Geneva, N.Y., she was the daughter of Earl and Lula (Kepler) Grover. Known to her friends as "Barb," she began her life with what were perceived as insurmountable health problems, and was not expected to live beyond the age of 7. By the grace of God and the loving care of her family, she enjoyed a rich, full life spanning eight decades.  In 1937, the family moved to Troy, Pa., where Barb attended Troy High School, graduating with the class of 1941. In the late 1960s she moved to Canton.  Barb was a woman who constantly gave of her time, energy and resources for the good of others. She volunteered for many years at the Troy Community Hospital, as well as for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Heart Fund. In addition to that, Barb was kept busy transporting senior citizens to and from appointments and grocery shopping for the homebound. She was known to many as the Cookie Lady, producing a seemingly endless variety of treats for one and all. Barb had a special place in her heart for animals, and made it her responsibility to feed the wild rabbits that frequented her yard.  She cared a great deal about the youth of our community and diligently salvaged the aluminum soda cans discarded at every Canton home game, which she donated to Save The Pool. She also enjoyed crossword puzzles, writing poetry, sketching and long walks.  But her most important walk was with her Lord. Throughout her life Barb was an avid reader of the Scriptures, sharing in the Christian fellowship of Bible study groups in Elmira, Troy and Canton. She was a member of the Canton Ecumenical Parish and attended the IHS adult class for as long as her health permitted. Her philosophy of life was that God put us here to help others.  Barb is survived by her sons, Rick (and Fran) Welch of Troy and Randy (and Olga) Welch of Michigan City, Ind.; her daughters, Sharon Wood of Erin, N.Y., and Debbie Lou Crespi of Colorado Springs, Colo; her stepdaughter, Deb McClure of New Hampshire; her grandchildren, Karen (and Dan) Burkitt, Jeff Warren, Dana Gaither, Alicia (and John) Swartz, Amanda (and John) O'Connor, Kimberly (and Brian) Tingler, Randi-Beth Welch and Michael Welch; her step-grandchildren, Andrea Pickering and Jason Kittle; eight great-grandchildren; two step-great-grandchildren; her stepbrother, Wendell Turner of Naples, Fla.; her sisters, Virginia Haflet and Evelyn Kellogg of Florida; and stepsisters Arlene Dyer of Elmira and Martha Searle of Horseheads, N.Y.  She was preceded in death by her mother, in 1937; her father, in 1966; her stepmother, Leah Grover, in 1981; her first husband, Richard Welch, in 2005; and her second husband, Dean McClure, in 1985.  Visitation will be 1 to 3 p.m. on Monday, March 16, at Morse & Kleese Funeral Home, 40 N. Center St., Canton. The funeral service will be at 3 p.m. with the Rev. Gerald Schmidt, her pastor, officiating.

GUSTIN, Miss Jane-daughter of Jesse Gustin, was born in Augusta, NJ, died in Troy, Pa, May 3, 1902, aged 86 years, 6 months and 6 days. Mr. Gustin’s family consisted of two sons and four daughters, all of whom have deceased, Jane being the youngest of the number. The sons were Thomas and Samuel who were well known in Wells and adjoining townships. Mr. Gustin settled in Wells Township about 68 years ago, locating near what is now called Coryland, on the road leading to Mosherville.  Subsequently he settled in Troy Township, locating on the corner of Canton Street and the street running west to the farm occupied by Ansel Williams, more recently by his son Oliver. As understood by the writer, that portion of the family remaining together at this time, were the parents, Jane and one sister. Previous to the occurrence related below, the father and sister died, leaving the mother, then an aged woman, to the care of Jane until her death. Sometime after the death of the father and sister, Daniel Wood, who had married into the family, moved into the home with Jane and her mother. Fifty-two years ago, Mrs. Wood died leaving a family of seven children, the oldest of which was about sixteen years of age. But one of this family survives at the present time, James, now living in Steuben Co, NY. At the decease of Mrs. Wood, Jane, as foster mother, assumed the care of this family, all of whom, except, George and James, died with consumption. Horatio, who I think, was the oldest; died in 1854, age 18 years. George drowned; his funeral occurred December 28, 1857. The funeral services of each of these were conducted by the writer of this. The next after George to go, was Jesse, then Maryette, than Jane. All these had the sympathy and care of their aunt. William, the youngest, died in Portland, Oregon and was buried not far from that city, April 22, 1863. Jane (namesake of subject of this notice) was married to John Gustin. At her death she left a daughter three years old, who is now Jeannette Gustin, well known to all the people of Troy. With motherly affection as in the case of those who have been mentioned, this woman of unselfish nature took this motherless child to her own bosom, caring for the young life as though it had been a part of her own.  For forty-four years Miss Gustin was a worthy member of the Troy Baptist Church, having united with it March 21st, 1858 and at the time of her death, was its oldest member. The funeral occurred at the home of John Gustin, where, in her declining years and last hours, she received the kindest attentions from Mr. Gustin and his daughter. Interment in Glenwood Cemetery.

Moses GUSTIN, whose death occurred at his residence in Troy, Pa, December 27, 1891, was born at    Reading, Steuben Co., N.Y., 26 August 1812. He was the son of Samuel and Charity Gustin. He was married to Phebe Miller in 1835 and her death occured some eight years afterward. There were left to survive her two children, Sarah Louise, now Mrs. O. C. Hatfield of Watkins, N. Y., and James Madison, who died at Troy in 1886. Mr. Gustin was married again in 1857 to Mary Salisbury, eldest daughter of Captain John Salisbury of Springfield, who with their son Ray Gustin, a young man just at his majority, survives him. Mr. Gustin moved to Troy in 1852 and established his business as a photographer, which has continued in his name till within a few years past. Moses Gustin will be remembered in this community as one of its most valued and respected citizens. His life has been    characterized throughout by a broad christian charity, a genial friendly spirit, and he dies with a conscience void of offence toward God and man. As a citizen he was patriotic, public spirited, and progressive. As a friend he was both true and just, and mingled his friendly counsels with timely rebuke when the occasion called for it. As a man he was unselfish and ever devoted to the best interests of his fellow men. He was a abolitionist and republican in politics, never deviating from his party principles except, as he expressed it, to give more emphasis to his temperance sentiments than he was able to do within party lines. For many years he was an esteemed member of Priam Lodge of  the independent order of Odd Fellows and at his request his brothers bore his remains tenderly to his  last resting place. In his faith he was broad and liberal, believing firmly in God, and his creed is best expressed by the lines of Whittier:

Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\mosgustn.jpg

"I know not where his islands lift 
  Their fonded palms in the air; 
  I only know I cannot drift 
  Beyond his love and care." 
  He was a man of remarkable intelligence, a close student and careful observer of the events of his day, and in many scientific subjects he had advanced as far as there was any substantial literature concerning them. He spent a large amount of money and time in the endeavor to make an improved code for his signal service and his code and system of signals received high praise from government  officials of this and other countries. He leaves a legacy of good example to the community in which he lived.
