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.

I've  been  surfing your genealogy site  and I want to offer my thanks.   Your site obviously has taken an incredible amount of time  and  commitment.  It is professionally organized, easy to navigate,   and  contains  important  information.  I've  found records for some direct ancestors -- Daniel Doane & Sarah Cole, Benjamin Burgess & Sally Doane -- and their families.  There is also  a  clue to another branch - James Beale, possibly the son of Benj Burgess' 2nd wife.

I'm also hoping I've found an error... The  1830  census  for  Bradford Co., Windham Twp shows a Benj. Burgess  and  his family.  Benj is shown in the 40-50 age group and the oldest female, presumably his wife, Sally, in the 30-40 age  group.  The 1840 Census shows the same with an increase of 10 years and the second oldest male being 15-20 years old.  The 1850  Census (pg 2 fam 99) Shows Benjamin Burgess to be 28 (the second  oldest male in the 1940 census) and his (probable) wife also  28.   With no other Benjamin Burgess listed in the census and  with the age difference one assumes that the 1850 Benjamin is  the son of the 1830-40 Benjamin. (An assumption that agrees with  separate  research.)   The  problem  is  the  Valley Home Cemetery  (pg  1, 3rd from last) record show a Benjamin Burgess as  dying on Mar 13, 1839.  Other research suggests he was born in  RI  about  1790.   His  age,   therefore,  agrees  with  the 1830-1940  Census.  His son, Benjamin was born in 1822 - age 28 in  1850   What I'm wondering... If Benj died and was buried in 1839,  who  is in the 1840 Census?  It seems unlikely 1) he was counted a year after his death and 2) His widow moved away when her  family  was  in  the  same  township  and another Benjamin Burgess  showed up with the same family age distribution..  SO, I'm  hoping  there  is an error in transcribing the date on the grave marker.

All of this is the long way around to asking if you can confirm the  date  on the grave marker.  I know that maintaining a site such  you  have  requires a lot of time and energy and that you have  other  commitments  at  hand  so  I'm  not  expecting any immediate answer.  I am hoping that you or a volunteer can keep this  request  in mind when next you have occasion to visit the cemetery.
Thanks again for your excellent web site.
