someone who lived in Hartford at one time) of a former Hartford resident from a
newspaper away from the Hartford area, please send it. Past obituaries
will be added as time permits. Death notices are also posted

Many requests are made for obituary
notices and this is a good genealogical resource, as well as
providing obits to extended family members who may not have an
original. Searching previous year obituaries (mainly prior to
2003) requires a good deal of time. If you found this to be a valuable
resource and would like to be a sponsor toward keeping the
obituaries page updated, send donations to History of
Hartford Obituaries, Emma Sefcik, 59320 62nd St, Hartford MI
49057. Since the History of Hartford website is a voluntary
effort, your contribution is much appreciated.
Email the webmaster
with any correction of obvious errors that may have
occurred in the original newspaper obit.

A. Blackmer [Pomeroy] was the
daughter of George and Alvira Blackmer and was the youngest of
three daughters the others of whom passed out in infancy. She
was born in Keeler Township, Van Buren County, July 22, 1858 and
went to her home beyond February 24, 1922, aged 63 years, seven
months and two days.
July 4, 1880, she was united in marriage with George
Pomeroy and resided in Keeler Township. They were the parents
of six children, three of whom passed out in infancy and William
Henry, in October, 1912. John Eugene, of Hartford Township and
Mrs. Vena M. Cook of Kalamazoo, together with seven
grandchildren and one great grandchild are the surviving ones of
Mrs. Pomeroy was cheerful through her illness which is
so characteristic of a patient, devoted mother, who is receiving
the tender care of the loving daughter that she did at the
daughter’s home in Kalamazoo where with serenity of thought,
cheerfully and hopefully she closed her eyes upon this world to
awake in the morning sunlight of a bright day.
Mrs. Pomeroy’s life was spent in Keeler and Hamilton
Townships. She was left a widow, Mr. Pomeroy succumbing to
pneumonia when her family was quite small and she braved the
rearing of them alone. The Labor of her hands was her
sustenance and many families will remember her tenderly. She
cared for Mrs. Sid Sterns in her last illness and after her
death assumed charge of that home where she served until her
last illness. It is needless to say she will be missed from the
fireside and by the Sterns family almost as much as by her own
Her home, as she termed it, is adjoining my own and it
is with deep appreciation that I embrace this privilege to
express the friendship that existed between this dear departed
soul and myself; and Mrs. Pomeroy was no more a spirit of
kindness and helpfulness to me, than she was to everyone within
the reach of her gentle touch. She was ever administering to
the needs of those in affliction. Her heart of sympathy and her
hand of helpfulness has been a comfort among her circle of
appreciative friends throughout her life.
Funeral services were held at Grange hall Monday and
interment was in the Keeler cemetery.
