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.
There are two cemeteries in Cherry Flats, and the obits do not always make the difference clear. I can only combine them here. Cherry Flats Methodist is in Covington Township and Cherry Flats Baptist is in Charleston Township.

WEIDMAN - Cherry Flats, Jan. 29 - Mrs. Elizabeth Zimmer, of this place, was found dead in her bed last Thursday morning. She had been complaining for a week with a cold, and was coughing badly, but said she was not very sick and had been about the house all the time as usual. Wednesday night when she went to bed she said if she needed anything during the night she would call; but nothing was heard from her until five o'clock in the morning, when her son, while attending to the fire in another room, heard her breathing heavily, the doors between the rooms being open. But he thought nothing of this as she frequently did so when sleeping, and he did not go to her bed until six o'clock, when he found that she had died. The cause of her death was probably suffocation from congestion of the lungs. Mrs. Zimmer's maiden name was Elizabeth Weidman. She was born in Berbe, Albany county, NY, March 10, 1813. She was twice married and was the mother of eight children. Two of the children by the first marriage - Mrs. Ralph Wolford and Mr. J.M. Haverley - and three by the last - Mrs. A.W. Mudge and Messrs. J.W. and E.B. Zimmer - are now surviving. She came to this county with her last husband, Mr. Hiram Zimmer, in February 1846, when the farm where she afterward resided and a large tract of land surrounding it, owned by Mr. Zimmer's father, was a wilderness. Mrs. Zimmer was a woman of great strength of character, and bore the deprivations of pioneer life with fortitude. In 1886 she was for the second time left a widow. She was converted in early life, and upon coming to this county she brought a letter to the Presbyterian Church of Covington, and was a consistent member at the time of her death. The funeral services were held in the Methodist church at Cherry Flats. Rev. J.B. Woodward, of Covington, conducted the services, assisted by Rev. James Jones, also of Covington. - Wellsboro Agitator, January 31, 1894
