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. 
The tombstone of Catherine Mattice - Sloat is in a field on the Old Rice Farm, northwest corner of Route 660 and Mudge Road in Richmond Township. It is surrounded by an iron fence and is tended by landowner Emerson "Louis" Rice. Linda C.R. (Name withheld by request) and Louis righted the stone today. It had been lying on its face.

The single tombstone reads:
Catherine Mattice, wife of Michael Sloat, Died Mar 7, 1867, Ag 59 y 11 m 21 d
Phileman - son of Michael and Catherine M. Sloat, Ag 27 y 5 m 21 d, Killed in the Battle of Petersburg July 30, 1861.

Mr. Rice says that Michael Sloat is also buried there and possibly two or three children who died of diphteria. That information came from Emerson Rice, (Louis' father) who said there were two childen and Ross Mudge who lived on that road, who said there were three childen buried there. .
 

Linda and Louis upright the stone.

[Cemetery is in bad shape. All of the stones are on the ground and many if not most are broken. It is in an area, which is open to cows, and evidence suggests they have frequently visited it in the past.  All of the stones in this cemetery date to the 1800s.]

Lent Burial Ground

Dear Joyce,
It has been a while since I did anything with the cemeteries in Lamb's Creek, but I did get a reading on the Lent gravestones.
The DOUBLE GRAVE that is by the wash-off hillside area read this way:
     HATTIE A.
      Dau. of
     JF & C Lent
       died
    Dec. 5, 1880
Age 2 yr. 5 m. ....(I couldn't read the days) 

  INFANT DAUGHTER
       DIED
   Oct. 26, 1887
  Budded on Earth
  Bloom in Heaven

The OTHER GRAVE read:
      FLORA M.
      dau. of
    LH & Cora I
       LENT
   Sept. 18, 1884
Age 3 yrs. 11 m. 25 days

Thanks, Mary MILLER Nance

In a message dated 5/2/2008 1:06:21 PM Eastern Standard Time,
Hi Joyce
   Just a short note,to let you know I'm still around.This morning while turkey hunting I came upon a small cemetery,completely overgrown and neglected,I'm guessing possibly 5 or 6 grave sites.The only stone that I was able to read was of Hattie Lent,the daughter of J.F. and C. Lent,she died in 1880,the rest of the dates I couldn't make out.
   I got back home and went into your site and found the marriage of James F. Lent and Celestia Smith of Lambs creek on Nov.29th 1876,so Hattie was probably under the age of 4.
   This cemetery is on the Lambs creek road,just before the Mitcheltree road,approx.100 yds  into the woods.It's full  of multiflora rose.
   Just wanted to share this with you,take care.
