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.

The listing remains in cemetery order. If you do not wish to review the listing page by page, it will eventually be included in the search engine which you will find in the main page of the site (Tri-Counties Genealogy & History by Joyce M. Tice) You will find this in the Bradford County Directory.
The Willows of Rome by Joyce M. Tice - I am illustrating these pages with pictures of tombstone carved willows, all found in Rome Cemetery. The willow is one of the commonest of the 19th century tombstone symbols. It is widely believed to be a sign of mourning - weeping willow. While the symbol itself is common, its diversity is infinite as each stone carver's style varied with his tastes and skills and creative need for variety. These illustrations are a sampling of the tombstone carving project I will eventually be including on this site.

August 2006 - Hi Joyce, I was just visiting my brother in Pa. and we visited the Rome Cemetery and I can fill in some blanks.
Page 7 - Minnie and John's last name is Clark, John was the son of Eliphalet Clark on page 4. Minnie's maiden name was Towner.
Page 16 - Resse Clark was John Clark's brother.
Page 16 - Barney Clark was son of Minnie and John Clark
Page 16 - Kathryn More was the daughter of Minnie and John Clark
I know that there is a Lillian and Herbert Johnson but I did not see their name on the list. Lillian is Minnie's sister and was a Towner.
