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.

Subj:  Monument of Gordon Wilcox in Smithfield
Date: 12/6/98 9:32:47 AM Eastern Standard Time
From: CDXJ63A@prodigy.com (MR CARLTON W WOLFE JR)
To: PABRADFO-L-request@rootsweb.com

To All, in the Congregational Church Cemetery at E. Smithfield, Bradford Co., PA, is a monument to Cpl. Gordon Taylor Wilcox d.03 May 1863 and probably his father Gordon Wilcox d.21 Dec 1865.  The marker
is so badly weathered that it cannot be read and efforts to discover the original lettering  on all sides have not been successful.  I am hoping that there is an old picture or newspaper clipping which will provide the original lettering.  We hope to add a new marker which can be read by all.  Carlton Wolfe in AL

I downloaded your East Smithfield, Bradford County Congregational inventory and found two omissions.  Henry Wittig listed in your list has two young sons also buried near him.  I missed them for years as they were so low to the ground.

They are Alanson and Tracy Wittig.  My cousin has a large framed memorial to them.

                 Alanson Wittig
                 died Sept 7 1870  Aged  10 M.

                 Tracy Wittig
                  died Sept 1876  aged 9 years 6 months
 

"Peaceful by thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in thy grave so low;
thus no more will join our number,
thou no more our song will know
yet again we hope to meet thee
and in heaven with joy greet
where no farwell tears are shed."

the above is printed on black paper with gold writing.
Just thought you would like to see this.

the markers read Alanson W and Tracy W and are to the right and rear of their father's marker.

Joyce,

I downloaded your Congregational Cemetery list and found two additions to make to it.

Henry Wittig, (my gggrandfather is buried there) Two of his young sons have verrry small markers, Albert W and Alanson W.  they are to the right and rear of Henry's marker.  My cousin Lynn Wittig in Athens has a memorial to them that came out of the Family homested when he had an auction sale in 1992.

It was on black paper with gold writing and is as follows.Published On Tri-Counties Site On 7/21/98 - Claudette W. Harding.


OBITUARIES

 

 

PERKINS Maria Perkins

Affectionately known as "Aunt Maria," died at her home in Cowley with Mr. & Mrs. F.E. Shoemaker.  She was 91 years old, and for years, before her age and era of ready-to-wear dresses prevented, journeyed from house to house as the local dressmaker.   Troy Gazette-Register 1933 

 

Perkins Maria R. 1842 1943    

Cemetery reading should be 1933 this would make her 91.  Birth date is correct with census and newspaper obituary.
