Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
||Do You Know that you can search just the
600 pages of Tioga County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries
-Tioga 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 - Tioga.
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Newbury or Furman] 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.
BAILEY FAMILY CEMETERY
RUTLAND TOWNSHIP, TIOGA COUNTY,
Located in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania
not far from the Sullivan Township line on a high knoll about 150 feet
east of the road that leads from Route 549 to Elk Run. Markers copied November
1982 by J. Kelsey Jones.
Note from JMT: This burial ground is in very bad condition. It is in
an actively used cow pasture. Most tombstones are lying on the ground buried
or partially buried. The area has active woodchuck burrows in it which
accounts for the burial of the remaining stones. I visited it in 1994 and
found it in deplorable condition.
Constant Bailey died Jan 30, 1843 Ag’d years (age
never inscribed - he is related to have been born 27 Jan 1777 Haddam, Connecticut
son of Robert and Asenath Bailey)
Abigail, wife of Constant Bailey died Nov 14, 1851 AE 75 yrs. 6 m. &
Sylvester Bailey died Nov 19, 1851 AE 57 Y’rs.
