Quoted from will of Henry Card who came from Rhode Island in 1829 to settle the farm next to the cemetery.  He raised his 13 children in the house that Marie Card Clark and her husband Owen Clark presently live in.

“And further, out of the land hereinbefore bequeathed to my son, George M. Card, I reserve one fourth part of an acre for a family burial, or ground, where the same now is, with the right to go to and from the same, and authorize the same to be fenced as my executors may think best.”

Credit should be given to the following people:  Joseph Dartt Bradford, who copied from stones in Card Cemetery before 1965, and from his records, by Wendell Thomas Card, before March 1971.  Eva Garnsey Card (EGC notes are by her) completed her data by May 1977, collating with Card notebooks and Monro Genealogy, and sent copy to Bradford County Historical Society in Towanda, PA.  Her daughter, Mary Card Yarnell, (MCY notes are by her) continued to clarify records of both Wendell T. Card (WTC notes are by him), and Eva G. Card thru 1987.   Additional information was given to us by Marie Card Clark, daughter of Wendell T. Card, July 2001.

From a letter written by Joseph D. Bradford of Troy, PA., July 1957 to Eva G. Card:
 “Years ago, the Monros, the Cards and the Bradfords, about once a year or every few years, held a three family picnic.  The picnics were held in the woods on the Tom Monro farm, on the Leonard J. Bradford farm, on the Henry Card farm on the Porter Road, and at the Troy Fair grounds on Alparon Park Troy.  Tom Monro was a son of Dorcas S. Card Monro.  The woods on the Henry B. Card farm and on my father’s farm joined.  The picnic ground on our farm was in the north east corner of the woods just west of the line fence next to Henry B. Card’s farm.  I believe the last Monro, Card, Bradford picnic was held about 1902.”  “The Homer B. Card farm joined my fathers farm on the north.  Walter H. Card worked for Father and lived with us for a year or more.”

 Francis Robert Fish, born March 5, 1836 in Bristol, R.I.  died Jan. 20, 1886 in Troy, PA  His parents came to Sullivan Twp. In 1838 and settled on the farm later owned by Henry B. Card.  He came to Troy in 1846 making his home with his older brother, Nelson Fish.  First man to sign up with the Troy Guards formed in mid April 1861.  This group later became Co. C. 12th regiment, PA reserve corps.  His comrades describe him as “a good soldier, an efficient officer, ever able, willing and ready to do a soldiers’ duty”.  Received a bullet in the leg at 2nd Battle of Bull Run and carried it many years.  Honorably discharged in 1864.  Active in Troy guards and G.A.R.   Nov. 22, 1864, married Miss Mary Ann Kniffin of Le Roy, PA., first casualty in Troy guard among those who survived the war.  Buried in Card Cemetery with military honors from Co. C & Gustin Post G.A.R.

Joe D. Bradford adds this note, “Bowen O. Card Sr. Says that Fannie, wife of Jos. B. Card was Fannie Strait and that she was killed in an accident on Bailey Hill.”  Bailey Hill is on the old road west of Sylvania.  As I have heard it she was thrown from a wagon when the tongue dropped and the wagon crowded and frightened the horses; was so badly injured she died within a day or two.  W.T.C.
