Broadacres Farm Cemetery, Charleston Township,  Tioga County, Pennsylvania - 2005
County Farm - Broad Acres Cemetery 2005
Read By: Linda C Reese
Date Read: Nov. 2005.
Typed By: Pat Smith Raymond
Location: Tioga Co. Charleston Twp. On Shumway Hill Rd. across from County Jail on County land
Other Comments: 10% of space has tombstones, rest has unmarked burials, several rows of sunken graves
Note from Joyce: The little cemetery in the front of Country Terrace - Broad Acres Nursing Home is NOT the Broad Acres Cemetery. That is the Austin Cemetery. This one is up the hill across from the jail. It is easy to confuse them because of the locations.
