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.

Other comments:  HISTORICAL MARKER -Philip P. Bliss  -  The great singing evangelist and gospel   song writer lived and taught school at one time in Bradford Co.  The cemetery   monument was built by Sunday School gifts from England and the U.S. After his   death in 1876.
Other comments:  From 1904 Mortuary Records:  Barbara Elliott, wife of Joseph died Jan. 22, 1833   age 41 was the first person buried in this cemetery.  The remains of those lying   in earlier marked graves were re-interred here after the opening of the cemetery.
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.
