Elk Run Cemetery Obituaries

Originally published in the Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd Tioga County Cemetery Inscriptions - Volume Four

In 1995 a dear friend, Paulina SMITH aged 93 was buried with her parents and other ancestors in this already old and abandoned cemetery across the road from where she lived and died. She was a true supporter of our Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project and contributed her family photographs and memories. We miss dropping in to chat with her. Joyce M. Tice
Historical Note from JMT - In the thirties there were more tombstones in the cemetery including some of the Chandlers for whom Chandlersburg - later Elk Run - was named. In my father's era some of these tombstones were used as base markers for softball games by the school children and were never returned to the cemetery.
