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.

JOSEPH Deborah July 3, 1851 65y, 5m, 4s Wife of John Joseph
JOSEPH ? ? ? Top of stone broken off, says "E & E Joseph" on bottom

There is also a stone that Reads: "John O. Golden" and the line below is AAaaBBbbZZzzXXxx" as well as some cross hatch designs across the top. From some research I have found that he was a tombstone carver for the area. There were a number of blank stones that only had the crosshatch designs across the top and nothing else on them. The carving on the stones was similar to those of the Joseph family stones.

**I have visited this cemetery several times over the years; it is located at the back of a farm field in a grove of trees that is above a creek bed. Sadly there are fewer and fewer stones every time I visit. My ancestors are the Bowman and Joseph families. I am trying to find where I put the coordinates of the cemetery…haven’t had them in hand since I last visited the cemetery in the fall of 2004.

Dear Joyce, [February 2010]

In the listings for John Mascho in the Bacon Cemetery, the second listing: John Mascho Jan. 7 1853 56y, 5m, 17d; is his wife, Sally. I visited the cemetery in July 1989 and found both stones. Sally's stone had the top part broken off and after some digging I found the top part of the stone covered in the dirt. The completed stone reads: SALLY Wife of JOHN MASCHO DIED Jan. 7, 1853 Age 56 Yrs 1Mo. & 17 Days. The "SALLY Wife of" was the part broken off, which led to the miss interpretation of the stone. Since I wouldn't take the stones from a cemetery, they were left leaning on a log. I suspect in the years since I was there, the top of the stone is lost again. John was my great great grandfather.

I do have a picture of the stones.
