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.

ANOTHER AGED RESIDENT ENTERS ETERNAL REST
Charles W. LAWRENCE (SRGP 07749) Passes Away at His Home Here Thursday, After Short Illness—Death Due to Age. On Thursday, July 24, at 9 a.m. occurred the death of Charles W. Lawrence, an old, well known and highly esteemed resident of Mansfield. Death was due to the general breakdown customary to old age. Although he had been failing in health for the past five years, nevertheless his tireless energy kept him busy at gardening and doing other odd jobs about the home. About two weeks ago, however, he was forced to give up. Everything was provided in the way of medical skill and care to bring about his recovery, but for about two days in advance, the relatives and friends were told that the end was near. He was born in Rutland Township on March 9, 1845. His parents were Norris and Belva Ett Lawrence, of Lawrence Corners. On September 11, 1873, he was married to Miss Charity Jenkins and to this union were born two sons, Martin V. and J. Clarence. His entire live was spent in and about Rutland Township and Mansfield borough where he enjoyed a wide acquaintance.He joined the M. E. Church at Lawrence corners when a very young man and was a faithful member there until he moved to Mansfield, and joined the M. C. Church, which he attended regularly until poor health made it necessary for him to keep near his home. The funeral services were held at his late home on East Main Street, Mansfield, and due to the absence of the Methodist Pastor, Reverend F. P. Simmons, the Reverend Ernest C. Potter, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, officiated. The interment was in the family plot in Prospect Cemetery. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Charity Lawrence; two sons Martin V., an employee of the N.Y.C.R.R., and J. Clarence, a clerk in the Baynes Shoe Store; also a number of cousins. Mr. Lawrence, or "Charley" as he was familiarly called, was a friend to all an enemy of none. He was devoted to his family and was always ready to do his share in anything that might be desired of him. He will be greatly missed, not only by his immediate family, but by all who have been in the habit of coming in daily contact with him and enjoying his pleasant powers of conversation and characteristic cheerfulness.

LAWRENCE, Maud E. (SRGP 74462) - After days and weeks of patient
waiting and prayers that she might find relief in death from that dread
disease, consumption, the spirit of Miss Maud Lawrence, of this boro, 'mounted
on high at 8 o'clock Sunday evening, June 12th and joined the heavenly host in
realms beyond the sky. Her age was 21 years, 5 month and 12 days.
On the night of December 28th she attended a social gathering at Tioga and
contracted a severe cold which, instead of giving way to the usual remedial agents
grew steadily worse and soon developed into quick consumption. Her
friends, and few had more of them, did all in their power to lighten her
suffering and stay the progress of her disease, abut all to no avail.
Until recently she had hoped for life and returning strength, but as the end
drew near she recognized its approach and bade the great destroyer
hasten. She was possessed of unusual attractiveness of face and figure
and had a deep hold upon the affections of her friends and associates.
The funeral was very largely attended from the Baptist church at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, Rev. F. H. Cooper choosing for his text, Matt. 9:24, "The maid is not dead, but sleeping." The floral offerings were beautiful beyond description, and consisted of an anchor wrought in white roses and callas, the gift of the junior class of the Normal School; a beautiful floral star; the design of a harp in white roses, and a magnificent bunch of half-blown yellow roses, etc., etc. The bearers were young men of her own selection, and the interment took place at Hope Cemetery, whither the remains were followed by a large number of mourning friends.
