Relocated to Oakwood Cemetery in Mansfield (Richmond Township)
In Volume 4 of Tioga County Cemeteries, all of the material on this page appears together. I am assuming that it all describes the same cemetery as some names are repeated, but others are not. Apparently each reading revealed stones or information that the others did not. This is one of several cemeteries destroyed by the Tioga Hammond Dam Project. Tombstones relocated to Oakwood Cemetery in Mansfield
Niles Cemetery - Adams Cemetery - Dailey Cemetery - Guernsey Cemetery - are alternate names for the same burials - Now relocated in Oakwood. Referred to in 1883 history as Mill Creek Cemetery.
Note from Joyce M. Tice - I have scanned images of about FIFTY Niles - Dailey - Mudge family photos all unidentified. They are roughly Civil War era photos. If you have photos from this family perhaps you could help me identify these.

|seventeen graves without monuments were plainly visible.|
|Here, Grandfather and Grandmother Niles lie,in unmarked graves. Standing there that bright,|
|sunny cheerful day - snowless, though the winter's month it was - the writer could not help but|

Yesterday when I was looking at your Cemetery page for the Niles, Adams, Dailey, Guernsey, I had a flash back to 1973 (maybe 74).
I grew up next door to the Evergreen Cemetery in Tioga. One day a crew of construction workers buried old caskets and placed stones in a corner of the cemetery.
I can remember going to see the old stones and seeing several metal markers that said unknown.
I also remembered being told that the graves came from Mill Creek. I thought the name on the stones was Guernsey.
Today when I was preparing my parents' graves for winter, I went to
the section that held the old stones.
I was excited that I actually remembered correctly, the name on some of the stones was Guernsey the other names were Niles and Entz.
I had my camera and took photos. I also wrote down the names- as most of the stones were worn - some did not photo well.
Long story made short when I came home I checked the Niles, Adams, Dailey, Guernsey cemetery page and found that several of these graves and stones had come from there. Here are the stones I found:
Joseph W. Guernsey born Oct. 5, 1799 died July 18, 1819
Sarah A. Guernsey born Sept 6, 1841- on the same stone - Charles B. Guernsey Born Aprile 3, 1839 died Oct 18,1877
Ella daughter of B.J. and M.D. Guernsey died Sept 11,1881- aged 27 years there was also some writing that could not be read
Delia and Emma ch of B.J. and M.D. Guernsey died September 2, 1875
Only one unknown metal marker- they must have been lost or taken over the years because I remember there were 3 or 4
Newtie E. son of Joseph W.and Julia Guernsey
Peter B. Guernsey Born August 20, 1812 died Nov. 22, 1852
NILES - Nellie M. 1870 - 1935 Henry C. 1859 - 1913
Helen Niles (no date)
ENTZ Mame Niles 1902- 1935
Earl W. Entz Tec 5 US Army 2-11-1911 1-15-1973
Names and dates that match to the Niles, Adams, Dailey, Guernsey Cemetery page are : Joseph W, Sarah A, Delia&Emma, Peter Guernsey, Nellie, Henry C.Niles
I wonder why these graves were moved to Evergreen in Tioga and others to Oakwood in Mansfield?
Another question for you, a while ago you said that you had a
photo of Nelson Brace, I did not find it on your wonderful site.
I sent you a photo a few weeks ago of Clara, Frank Dailey with Ira and Clara Giles - there was another couple in the photo I believe to be Nelson and his Elza Jane Tanner. Could you look at the photo and the one you have to see if they are a match?
I still have some copied newspaper photos to send you of the people
that were mentioned in the newspapers articles I sent last week. There
just never seems to be enough time....I really do not know how you do it.
Note: Debora also sent the following photos filed in the Tioga - Evergreen directory:

DAILEY - MRS. CLARA D. BRACE
Mrs. Clara D. Brace died at her home in Rutland, Wednesday Evening, November 10, at 9:45. It came as a great shock to her family and friends as she was always helping others in sickness, and those who were not sick. She had been in poor health for several years, but was able to be around most of the time. Death was due to pneumonia. Mrs. Clara D. Brace was born in Tioga, September 16, 1861, a daughter of Martin Van Buren and Mary Dailey.She was united in marriage to Frank K. Brace March 11, 1885, he being dead nine years last July. She had made her home last winter in Tioga at her sister’s Mrs. Letta D. McKinney, and most of the summer at Mansfield caring for Mrs. Dailey until her death; also stayed a while until she went to Elmira for two weeks, caring for Mrs. Albert Armstrong. She will be greatly missed in her community and home. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Ira Giles, of Rutland and Mrs. Robert Giles of Sullivan; also two sisters, Mrs. Leta D. McKinney of Tioga, and Mrs. D. C. McAllister, of Olean, N.Y.; and one brother, M. E. Dailey, of Corning. The funeral was largely attended at Lawrence Corners M. E. Church. Rev. Seymour Barrett, of Tioga, officiated. The pall bearers were Liston Stickler, Nelson Stickler, Fred Stickler, Ross Watkins, Glenn Brace, John Grimm. Burial in Dailey Cemetery beside her husband.
