RIPLEY FAMILY CEMETERY

RICHMOND TOWNSHIP, TIOGA COUNTY, PA.

Located in Richmond Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, east of Route 549 and about one mile from Powers Corners (junction of Route 6 and Route 549). The cemetery is several hundred yards from Route 549 and can be seen from the road on a wooded glacial knoll enclosed by a stone and iron fence surrounded by pasture. The fenced area encloses a much larger area than the nine members of the Ripley family who are interred there. All have individual markers, except for P. S. Ripley and his wife Lorena Webster. Markers copied Sept 1983 by J. Kelsey Jones.

Deeded as Broderick Cemetery which makes NO SENSE at all since there are none of that name in here.

Obituaries
Mr. Philip S. Ripley [SRGP 07718]
Last Sunday morning Mr. Philip S. Ripley, who was for years one of the most prominent and respected citizens of Richmond township, died at his home in Mansfield, at the age of 83 years.  On Saturday week Mr. Ripley was out at work upon his lot, when he took a heavy cold.  He was taken sick that night, and pneumonia developed and he suffered greatly during the week of his sickness; but he fully realized that the time had come for his departure from earth, and he expressed a longing for the supreme moment when his soul should take its flight.  Mr. Ripley was born near Albany, NY, March 24, 1812.  He was brought to Mainesburg with his fatherís family when he was four years of age, and there he was reared.  When he became of age he bought the farm upon which he lived up to the time he moved to Mansfield, not long since.  (Tuesday, April 17, 1895, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
