Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the Bradford County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Bradford button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Bradford. 
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Ballard or Berrytown] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated.

Note on Cahill Cemetery from S. J. Tweitmann

Yes, Rollin Scrivens is buried in the Cahill Cemetery. There are also the following:

  George Morris's boy (killed under a wagon)
  Levi Thomson
  Silas Bailey
  Mr. and Mrs. Warner
  Lawrence Updegraff*
  Martha Porter Updegraff*

Martha Updegraff was my great grandmother and Lawrence was her baby son.  None of these persons had a gravestone, just a fieldstone at the head of the grave.

Years ago there used to be more gravestones but they were stolen as was iron fencing that was around some of the graves.

There is a possibility that "Stoney" Green might have been buried in the Cahill Cemetery.  He apparently was a Civil War Vet and lived just north of the cemetery with his wife Mabel "May".  I can't find my notes but think May was a Scriven/s before she was married and therefore related to Rollin. I do not know what "Stoney" was a nickname for but that is what he was always called.  I think they had a son called "Dewey"????. They also raised a boy they called LaForest Green.  I think LaForest's mother died when he was born and May just took him and raised him. A list of residents of Overton for 1910 lists an E. L Green.

I do not know what year Rollin died but it was in the winter.  He and Stoney (I think) were going to Cahill from the Foot of Plains.  Apparently Rollin died about halfway to Cahill.  Stoney left Rollin lying across the track and went on to Cahill.  He got George Martin to take his horse and wagon to get Rollin's body.  The body was taken to the Cahill Schoolhouse.  Stoney Green preached the sermon (of sorts) and Rollin was buried in the Cahill Cemetery. I will try to find my notes and check to see that this is the story that was given to me.

Approximately a mile from the Cahill Cemetery is a private Cemetery.  In it are buried a man, his wife (Jerusha) and twin daughters. Their last name was Worden.  There was also another grave there but the body was taken up and reburied in the cemetery at Powell. I think Mr. Worden was French Canadian.

I am so glad that persons like yourself are taking the time to "read" the various cemeteries.  Unfortunately, years ago many persons were buried without tombstones so only family members know of the burial and unless they pass the info on to their children the info is lost.
