Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008
||Do You Know that you can search just the
the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections
in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the
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.

Last Friday afternoon this neighborhood was thrown into a state
of great excitement when the news of the tragic death of Carl Cleveland
became known. He with his brother had been sprouting potatoes in
the cellar. About 2 o’clock he went to the barn to let out the cows,
and when he had been gone longer than his brother thought necessary the
latter went to investigate and found him in the silo dead. A short
time ago he had suffered from mumps and he had not fully recovered from
them. He was nervous and despondent at times but was able to be about.
Dr. Harkness of Mansfield, and Dr. William F. White of Wellsboro were called,
and decided that death was caused by falling from the top of the silo to
the concrete bottom below. Carl Cleveland was the youngest son of
Addin and Sarah Beardsley Cleveland, born May 9, 1872. In April 1898,
he was married to Anna Goodall. She passed into the great beyond
April 28, 1901, and their infant son died in June 1901. He and his
brother, Merton G. Had always been partners on the farm where his life
was spent. They had never entered into any business transactions
without first consulting each other. He was an honest, upright citizen,
and a good neighbor; a man who will be greatly missed. He was an
active member of North Elk Run Grange; also a member of the Bradford County
Milking Shorthorn Breeder’s Association. Those who mourn his
loss most deeply are his brother, above mentioned, and two nieces, Celia
and Florence, and three nephews, Lester and Carl, at home, and Lyle of
Wellsboro. The funeral was held Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock from
his late home, interment being made in the Seamon Cemetery by the side
of his wife and son. The Rev. L. M. Sparks of Covington, officiated.
The services at the grave were in charge of North Elk Run Grange.
His brother and family have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
