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.

Calkins, [SRGP 85672] who has been a well-known conductor on the Fall Brook railways, died last Monday afternoon at the Methodist hospital in Brooklyn, NY, where he went five weeks ago in the hope of obtaining relief through a surgical operation. Upon investigation, the surgeons concluded that it would be fatal to remove a fibrous or cancerous tumor in the lower bowel, so they performed the operation of colostomy, and Mr. Calkins was hoping  to recover sufficient strength to return to his family in this place. But he failed steadily, and on Monday his family was notified that his death was near, and his son, Mr. Walter V. Calkins started that day for his bedside; but Mr. Calkins died before his son reached Brooklyn. Henry Daniel Calkins was nearly 66 years of age. He was born in Charleston Township November 17, 1830. He married Miss Maria Wilcox, February 14, 1852. Of their three children one daughter and one son are surviving, besides the widow. Mr. Calkins enlisted at the outbreak of the war in Company C, 7th PA Cav., as a Private, and he served through the war and was promoted to Lieutenant. After the war Mr. Calkins was for two years in the mercantile business at Tioga. Then he became a freight conductor on the New York Central railroad. His leg was broken in an accident and he was laid up for some time. He then became conductor of a passenger train on the Tioga railroad, a position he held for many years. For the past eleven years he had been in the employment of the Fall Brook Railway and for nearly two years conductor on the train between this borough and Stokesdale Junction. About a year ago his family moved here from Elmira, NY. He was a quiet, unassuming gentleman who had many friends and no enemies. Last winter Mr. Calkins had pneumonia, and he had hardly recovered from that when he was again prostrated with the obscure disease, which caused his death. The remains are to be brought to Mansfield tomorrow, and the funeral is to be held immediately after the arrival of the noon train. – Wellsboro Agitator, 12 August 1896

The funeral of the late Frank W. Clark, Esq., was held at his late home on North Main Street, and was largely attended.  The following members of the Tioga County Bar Association were in attendance:  Judge Howard Marsh, C. H. Ashton, C. B. Clark, Thomas Crichton, Mason Owlett, A. B. Dunsmore, C. M. Elliott, E. H. Green, N. B. Leslie, George R. Mathers, Horace B. Packer, F. H. Rockwell, E. B. Rockwell, Walter Sherwood, Harry N. Sherwood.  Many others from out of town were present, among whom we noticed Prothonotary E. P. Rees, of Wellsboro; Miss Agnes Fitzpatrick and Mr. and Mrs. Dodson, of Olean; Mrs. Lucy Bailey Rockwell, of Wellsboro.  Rev. J. H. Stanton, pastor of the Mansfield Presbyterian Church, of which Mr. Clark was a member, gave a short, but splendid talk from John 9:4: “The night cometh when no man can work.”  Mr. Stanton said, in part:  Death is certain.  Man may conquer everything else.  He may jealously guard his health, and obey all the laws of his physical being.  Yet with it all a slow disintegration, sets in early life.  We start to die before we have commenced to live.  Death is a swifter runner than man.  It overtakes him in the end.  Trips planned are never completed, poems are left unwritten children are left motherless and husbands wifeless.  The dearest ties are broken.  Death is cruel.  It has no love nor sentiment.  But in another sense death is uncertain.  The moment of its coming is beyond our knowledge.  There are a thousand things to cut one’s life short unexpectedly.  Life is constantly becoming more hazardous.  We must then strive to our utmost to make our lives useful while we can, for death may at any moment terminate our work.  Rev. Mr. Griffiths made a few remarks in which he eulogized some of the peculiarities of the deceased.  He said that Mr. Clark had often said that he desired to die from his feet up, when his time came.  Meaning that he wished that his mind would remain clear to the end.  And in this he got his wish.  The interment was in Prospect cemetery.


Frank W. Clark, Esq.. one of the most prominent lawyers in Northern Pennsylvania, died yesterday at ten o’clock a.m., after a week’s illness. Enlargement of the heart was the doctor's decision. The funeral will be held tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon at two o’clock at the house on North Main Street, Rev. J. H. Stanton, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, will officiate, assisted by Rev. D. J. Griffiths, of the Baptist Church; interment will be in Prospect Cemetery. Mr. Clark is survived by his widow and two daughters, Fannie M. Clark and Julia Genevieve, wife of Carl Clark of Wellsboro; and six grandchildren; also a niece, daughter of the late J. M. Clark. Frank W. Clark was born in Richmond Township, August 21, 1839, a son of Elijah Pincheon and Fannie Fitzgerald Clark and grandson of Elijah and Lydia Mixter Clark. He was reared in his native township and received his education in the public schools of Mansfield, the Wellsboro high school and the Mansfield Classical Seminary, now the state Teachers College. He spent the summer of 1863 in the West with his invalid brother, Daniel E. Clark, remaining with him until his death. In the early part of 1864 he commenced the study of law under the Hon. Henry Sherwood, of Wellsboro, with whom he remained two years. Upon his admission to the bar, in 1866, he located in Mansfield, where he has ever since resided, and practiced his profession. Mr. Clark was married September 9, 1875, to Miss Lelia S. Cole, a daughter of Alston J. and Mary B. Adams Cole, of Mansfield. In politics Mr. Clark has always been a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat. Had he been of the Republican faith, Mr. Clark could have been elected to most any office in the county or district, for he was one of the best lawyers in the state. For fifteen years he was a member of the State Board of Health. He has served as chairman and secretary of the Democratic County Committee. He was nominated several times for Representative in the Legislature, as well as District Attorney and Judge, but unfortunately for him he was on the wrong side of the fence, politically. He was secretary of the borough of Mansfield for many years, a trustee of the Normal School, and President of the Mansfield Hook and Ladder Company. Mr. Clark was not only a prominent and successful lawyer, but was always one of the progressive and public-spirited citizens of Mansfield.

Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\fam.gifProspect Cemetery Jesse Miller CLARK [SRGP 09731]
CLARK - Following an illness of one week, J. Miller Clark, a member of one of the oldest and best known families of this vicinity died at his home on South Main street on Tuesday evening, January 29 [1907]. Death was due to paralysis. Mr. Clark was 65 years old. The funeral was held from the home at 1 o'clock on Friday afternoon last, the Rev. Arthur H. Simpson, pastor of the Baptist church, officiating. the members of Friendship lodge, F&AM, of which Mr. Clark was a past master, attended the obsequies in a body, and the interment, in Hope [Prospect] cemetery, was in accordance with the Masonic ritual.
------------------------Jesse Miller Clark was the fourth son of Elijah Pincheon and Fanny Fitzgerald Clark, and he was born on the Corey Creek Stock and Dairy Farm, which he owned at the time of his death, as were his four brothers, two of whom survive -- Warren Clark, of Waverly, NY, and Attorney Frank W. Clark, secretary of the Mansfield Boro Council, on which body deceased had served for several years, and was a member at his death. Two brothers preceded Mr. Clark to the other world, the youngest, Myron S., who died in 1865 at Troy, PA, in his 22d year, and a month prior to the date fixed for his marriage, a victim of typhoid fever; and Daniel E., the eldest, who died
in Wisconsin, in 1863, at the age of 28, of consumption, which developed from acute pneumonia. He was traveling with a view to improving his physical condition when dissolution came.

. Jesse Miller Clark's education was gained in the district schools and in the Mansfield Classical Seminary, now Mansfield Normal. Upon leaving school, he taught for several years, closing his early life as a teacher as principal of a select school in Mainesburg. He then successfully managed his father's farm for one year. then came his marriage, in 1866, to Miss Matilda Fox, daughter of John Fox, of Mainesburg; she died in 1889. Their only son, Colie M., died suddenly in March, 1886, aged 18. From this blow Mrs. Clark never recovered. Immediately following his marriage, Mr. Clark entered mercantile life in Mainesburg, in copartnership with his father-in-law and Jerome B. Cudworth. This partnership continued for two years, when Mr. Cudworth retired, and the firm name became Fox & Clark. Several years later Mr. Clark purchased Mr. Fox's interest and became the sole owner of the business, which he successfully conducted for ten more years. He then came to Mansfield, forming a partnership with Daniel H. Pitts in the dry goods and clothing business, which was carried on in the store now occupied by H.M Griggs. This partnership continued one year, Mr. Clark then retiring to enter the hardware business on Wellsboro street, which he conducted for two years. He then disposed of the hardware store and re-entered the general merchandise trade in the building now occupied by Kear's cash store. The firm later became Clark, Rose & Judge. In the fall of 1886 Mr. Clark disposed of his holdings in the firm and bought the State Soldiers' Orphan School property in Harford, Susquehanna county, which he conducted for three and a half years under the system then in vogue -- the principal furnishing everything and receiving a stated sum per year for each pupil's maintenance and schooling. The legislature then changed the regime, and the school property was leased to the state by Mr. Clark, and he was employed as principal at a goodly salary. In the meantime the State Industrial School had been established in Scotland, Franklin county, and Mr. Clark was urged to become its superintendent at a salary of $5,000 a year. He accepted, and was succeeded as principal of the Harford Orphan School by James E. Matthews, of Mansfield, now superintendent of the State Hospital in Scranton. Mr. Clark frequently received letters from his former pupils in these schools, attributing their success in life to the training they received at his hands. At the expiration of a year's service in the industrial school, Mr. Clark asked for an assistant because of the great increase of work. This request was denied him, and he resigned. He then returned to Mansfield, and a few years later bought and improved the handsome home where he passed the remainder of his life. He continued to conduct his famous stock and dairy farm, and, after a few years, added to his business cares thirteen cheese factories, which he purchased in connection with F.E. Zimmer. Four years ago he purchased the interest of Mr. Zimmer, and successfully conducted the factories until about a year ago, when he sold them to Warren D. Rose. Mr. Clark had acceptably served as president of the common council, and he was recently re-elected president of Smythe Park Association. His business life was ever an active one, and he accomplished much. He was prominently identified with the Mansfield Baptist church. His widow, who, with one daughter, Janice M., aged 7, survives, was Miss Minnie Cogswell, of Susquehanna county. The Industrial School News, printed at Scotland, said of Mr. Clark, in its issue of Thursday, August 13, 1896: "He has dedicated to the school work all his talents as a disciplinarian, an educator, a thorough-going business man of unusual sagacity and shrewdness, and his long experience, backed by his indomitable will, and best of all, his integrity, and it is no wonder the school has prospered without stint, and the pupils are attached to him as they would be to a father. He is an accomplished and forcible public speaker. Mr. Clark is a man of wonderful talents,and he understands how to turn them to use. Everything he takes hold of has to move so that all can see the motion, as he brooks no failure and knows no surrender nor backdown. We congratulate him upon the success he has attained and also congratulate the commission upon securing his services for this institution." The foregoing is a part of an editorial tribute to Mr. Clark upon his assuming management of the industrial school,  and has reference to his work in the Harford Orphan School. - Gray scrapbook clipping, 1907
