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. 



 Located in Rutland township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania on a small rise bordering the north side of Sopertown Road. This is a very early burying ground for families in that vicinity and one marker bears an inscription of 1812. The cemetery is not fenced and is now part of a cow pasture and is not in good condition. There are many old fieldstone markers bearing no inscriptions. I have included footmarkers (a second marker on the grave, besides the headstone marker, placed at the foot of the grave) because the cemetery is in such a state of deterioration that perhaps a descendant at some point may find the footmarker and learn the place of interment of their ancestor, but not be able to locate the headstone marker. Markers copied Apr 1980 by J. Kelsey Jones.
