Gray Cemetery, Covington Township, Tioga
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.

"At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus saying, Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble as this little child, the same is the greatest I the Kingdom of Heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little one in My name receiveth Me."
"Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in Heaven their angels do always behold the face of My father which is in Heaven." Matt. 18:1-5, 10.
"Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto Myself, that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:1-6.
Our little brother was called home by God. Though he had only reached the tender age of eleven, he succeeded in showing the way to love one another to both the young and old of our community. He was an obedient child, one who loved his parents and God. He knew what it meant to hear, to listen, to attend, to the commands of God and his parents. He obeyed them because he loved them. He found in obedience his own reward in a loving father and mother. He received a home training that was worth while. Oh that all of the children in this world might receive a loving Christian training as he did. The other children of this family are a witness to the Word of God when it says "Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. If the people of Covington would learn to love one another the way he did. If we could only let this child show us the way to love, for he had the secret. He loved God first and God taught him how to love others, then this community would be a better place in which to live. We must thank God for allowing us even the eleven short years of fellowship we had with him. He in this short time completed his task here, while ours still remain unfinished. Oh that we may let the love of God come in our hearts in all it s fullness and go about our task as little brother did.
Card of Thanks
Mr. and Mrs. Ransford E. Carson and family wish to express their appreciation to all who helped them in any way following the death of son and brother, Malcolm Carson; for the flowers and cards and the dinner served by the ladies of the Church of Christ.

CLEVELAND, WILBUR “WIB” (SRGP 26470)
Wilbur Cleveland, familiarly known as the “Tioga County Pop Corn King,” died of pneumonia last Friday night at 11:30 o’clock, aged sixty-nine years, at his home at Canoe Camp.

Mr. Cleveland is survived by his widow, Lavina Odell Cleveland, two grandchildren, and two brothers, Orey Cleveland, of Marsh Creek, and Melvin Cleveland, of Arcade, N.Y. “Wib” Cleveland was one of Nature’s noblemen. He was a friend to everyboyd, and always had a pleasant word for all. He never did anybody anything but good. We realize the limitation of words in the English language when we attempt to pay tribute to a noble life like that of our friend “Wib”. He had more than his share of trouble and heartrending sadness during his life, but no one ever heard him complain. He was always cheerful and always ready for a joke, no matter if he was the one hit. Almost the last time the writer saw him we inquired how the world was using him these days, and with one of those million-dollar smiles, he said, “A great deal better than I deserve. It is a great old world, I myself, am not good for anything any more, but the world is sure all right, and a good place to stick around in.” If this world had a few more inhabitants with”Wib’s” practical Christianity inside of them, what a splendid place it would be to live in.
