The David Bristol Stone

This newly discovered old burial ground is just a few hundred feet from the Tioga / Bradford County line in Sullivan Township on the south side of the Austinville Road. On a wooded knoll one stone is presently visible lying down. We are told that in the flat below are the tombstones of two children. They were unearthed in the `1970s when pigs were turned into that field and ate the vegetation. The family then moved the pigs and the chicken coop to accommodate the burials. Presently the field has grown to grass and brush and they are not visible. Further probing may yield more stones.

David C. Bristol died APR 27, 1854 Aged 32 y, 7 m, 12 d. (David had married Melissa Ripley in 1851)
