This is a very, very large cemetery of some 20,000 burials from at least
1868 to the present. It is the major burial place for most residents who
die at this time and for many of our early settlers as well. Eloise
FRANTZ Wilson has collected information from many obituaries, death
records, history books, and other records over a lifetime of historical
research. Much of this you will find on file at various local libraries.
She has given generously of her expertise and is one of our most respected
and loved local historians. She has recently made her files available to
the Tri-Counties Site, and they will be prepared for presentation here.
Please be patient as this will take some time. These records still represent
only a partial listing of the burials in this cemetery. Hopefully at some
time in the future we will have the local labor resources to do a reading
of this cemetery. Those of you who need information from this cemetery
are encouraged to be patient and to respect the resources and time of the
local people who are doing all they can to make this and all Tri-County
cemetery listings available to you. (May 2001)
Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
||Do You Know that you can search just the
County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Bradford
button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the
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
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages
with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated.

NOTE - May-June 2002, Eloise Wilson and Stephanie Johnson did
a complete tombstone reading of this cemetery. Eloise has compiled this
new information into the existing database and I will replace the 2001
pages with that revised editiion. New 2002 pages will be so identified.
Pages that do not say 2002 are from the earlier 2001 edition. Both Eloise
and I will be glad to receive addendum with supporting documentation to
further enhance and build this compilation. Joyce M. Tice

Marie Platt Post
My name is Dennis Blair. I am a 1973 Athens High School graduate. I
noticed that several of my relatives were omitted
from the Tioga Point Cemetery list. Could you please add
my Grandfather ( Howard ) and Grandmother (Esther )
located in the northside "notch". If you go in the east gate
and go North, there is a section that juts out further North.
They are in the Northeast corner of this "notch".
Also, I believe my great grandfather ( Dana S. ) is 200-300 feet West
and 100-200 feet north of the East gate (Approx.).
My Father ( Wayne ) his headstone (Future resting place)
is in this area too. Thank you for your time!
Sincerely, Dennis ( DBlair1@stny.rr.com )
Hello Joyce, (July 2005)
Your site is most heplful for those looking for family. Here is what
I know about some sites at Tioga Point Cemetery.
There are six sites that are my family the first two are of Norman
A. Burk and Minnie M. Lyons-Burk. They are my great grandparents. They
are the parents of Geraldine M. Burk-Atwood and Charles Burk. Geraldine
passed away on Feburary 7of this year. She was my grandma.
The two that sit behind are William H. Burk and Millie B. Burk. They
are my great-great grandparents. Millie was the Grandma of the Mac
Daniel tombstone. There is also is also a Vivian L. Klinko on these sites.
I didn't see her name. However she is there.
Thank you for allowing me to add this info.
Looking through Tioga Point Cemetery listing, I didn't find my aunt,
who died only days old. For years there was no marker, but in 2000
I had a marker put up where she was buried. Unfortunately, they didn't
know exactly which side of the plot she was buried because another unrelated
child was there as well. So to the best of their knowledge, a new
stone was erected.
Pauline Elizabeth Hoyt
