Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the Bradford County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Bradford 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 - Bradford. 
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Ballard or Berrytown] 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.

Reed Family Burial Ground, North Rome, PA

All I can see in this cemetery is one headstone for Jane Reed and a footstone.  I would welcome any other data regarding this family burial plot. Every once in awhile you see silk flowers on the grave.

The single footstone records

There is no evidence of other burials but there could be. The ground is hollowed in many places. [Ground depressions indicate burials, and I believe that is what Carol is describing- JMT] Crepe Myrtle was prevalent everywhere.

The 1850 Rome, PA. Census reveals the only Wm. S. Reed in this area was born in New York about 1820. His wife was Mary A.  She was born in PA., aged 23 years. They have a daughter Martha, aged 4 years, and a son Moses aged 1 year, both born PA.
The Orwell Church records, found at the following URL. record that Mary Ann Reed (wife of Wm. S. Reed) died July 16, 1850, aged 28 years 20 days and is buried in the Orwell Valley Cemetery.  This suggests that possibly he had a second wife named Jane who is buried here. They can not be the same woman.

Joyce,  The Reed cemetery on the Rome site...when I was there and brought it to your attention there was more than the two stones that are listed on the site.  I will try to find what I have, if I still have it.  The Mary A. Reed that is buried in the Orwell Valley cemetery must have been the first wife of Wm. S. Reed as she died 7/1/1850 at the age of 28yrs and 20 days, and her stone says the wife of Wm. S. Reed.  The wife of Wm S. Reed buried in the "Reed" burial ground must have been the second wife having died 3/9/1854.  Can't help but wonder where he is buried.

Elliott Burial Ground

In a message dated 6/5/2009 2:44:35 PM Eastern Daylight Time, writes:
Forget the first one I sent on this cemetery I missed a couple of names.  This is one is complete.
This cemetery is off the North Rome Road, a left turn into a trailer court which is right past the Creekside Discount Market.  The cemetery is behind the trailer court, behind the last trailer on the right.  There are more stones there that are broken and others that can not be read.  The owners do not want anyone on the land as they fear someone doing something to/at the renter's homes.  I was told that someone has the burial listings for this cemetery some time ago and have waited for years to get it, but have not been able to do so.  I have another copy of this somewhere (that I did about 6 years ago) and it may have more names on it, but I can not find it at this point.
