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.

This cemetery is located on Virtus Hollow Road off Coryland Road in Columbia. Supposedly the Wolfes were buried right where the road now is and the tombstones moved to a hedgerow. Kelsey Jones read the cemetery in August 1980 and found the stones in the hedge row. They were still there in 1988 when Charles Holley visited it. In July 1997, Charles Holley and I, Joyce M. Tice, visited it and found an area beside the road enclosed in chain link fence. The tombstones were arranged flat on the ground on a bed of wood chips, with all broken pieces lying together. A wide flagstone path goes from the road to the center of the tombstone area. Thanks to whomever invested time and money to salvage these stones.
