We’ve amassed a collection of 265 obituaries from the years 1903 to 2017, from various newspapers and clippings contributed by individuals. You can select names from an index, or browse through nine pages of images.
The ladies of Cliffside would, from time to time, allow their imaginations to run amok and give birth to ideas like this one: to stage an event at which each of their bodies is adorned in unexpectedly gauche, let alone unfashionable, ensembles and accessories. In a word, Tacky. Bottom of the trunk stuff, if you will.
Your Honor, there is evidence of such goings-on. We offer as Exhibit-12 these photos under Galleries->Events.
Did you have a relative living in Cliffside in 1930? Well, he or she can likely be found in our 1930 Federal Census for the Cliffside area. In addition, you can read about all the goings on in our our town in that long-ago year. It and much else is in the very large section called Cliffside in 1930. How many and whose homes had a radio? Who were the veterans were there? Which war? Who was the youngest person working in the mill? The oldest?
And we’ve brought back Don Bailey’s survey of the Haynes Grove Cemetery, which is located in a clearing on the wooded hill just beyond the Cliffside School ballground. He has diagramed and numbered all the grave sites and identified most of the deceased buried there.
A lot of reviving, reshaping and overhauling done to old pages since we last spoke. (There are too many to link to here. Just click on the categories below and find the new material.)
