Old Daggett Burial Ground

Jackson Township, Tioga Co., PA 0

Located in Jackson Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania on the south edge of the hamlet of Daggett on a small wooded rise on the east side of the main road (Route 549) and north of Seeley Creek (also known as Daggett Creek). This is where the first settlers in the vicinity of Daggett were buried. There are several plain markers bearing no inscriptions. It is reported that some Jennings markers and others were washed away when high water from the flooded creek cut into the cemetery. The earliest inscribed date of death is 1815. All spellings in the verses are as they appear. I have included the footmarkers that were found and correspond with the headstone markers. Copied 1979 by J. Kelsey Jones.
