Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the 600 pages of Tioga County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Tioga 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 - Tioga. 
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Newbury or Furman] 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. 

From Tioga County History 1897, one of the oldest burial places, excepting, of course, the Indian burials., is the oldest cemetery on the Loren CARPENTER Farm about half mile east of Academy Corners. Called Carpenter Cemetery or Academy Corners Cemetery.

The first interment was said to be a member of the surveying party, marked C. C. J. 1800.

William KNOX, the township Pioneer lies in an unmarked grave. Here, also are buried members of CLOOS, BULKLEY, SHORT, WRIGHT, FAULKNER, HOWLAND, INGHAM and other early families.

This is a copy of paragraph from History of Tioga County by R. C. Brown and Co. 1897.

Copied by Lola W. Franke, August 1970, who adds - There are many stones piled and thrown over against the back fence, near a slough of water, with green scum, which I could not read. Also, two large thin upright stones, fallen over, face down. Retyped by Linda ZAPF Cracraft
