Hi Joyce,
I am still wading through the cemetery records of Chemung, Bradford and now Tioga Counties.  The short listing on the Griffin Cemetery at Roaring Branch surprised me.  This cemetery is fairly large.  When my sister, Ruth, and I visited it in 1992, we could not locate our maternal grandparents graves.  The cemetery secretary's office is a stone throw away from the little Post Office in Roaring Branch.  The secretary opened the cemetery books and we were able to get a lot of information about our grand parents.
Our grandmother, Mary Baker Wheeler, wife of Edward Wheeler, died 22 Feb 1935, aged 65 years.  Cause of death Paralysis left side.  Undertaker, C.L. Maneval, Williamsport, PA.  A.N. Grenell Loc. Reg. Dist. No. 41-05, permit no. 9. No stone.
Edward Martin Wheeler died 9 June 1947, aged 81 years, 9 mo, 5 days, cause of death Cerebral Thrombosis.  Buried 11 June 1947.  Undertaker Melvin C. Hagelman, Elmira, NY.  No stone.
Their son, Leon Wheeler, is buried in the same plot and has a stone.  He died 4/8/1912, aged 21. cause of death, pneumonia.  Undertaker R.E. Bastin, Liberty, PA.  Permit No. 204.  There is a stone.
They are all buried in the same plot along with their youngest son, Mark Amos Wheeler, who died 20 Oct 1947. No stone.
