Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
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. 

The Osceola Cemetery Association has its grounds on an eminence west of the village and north of the Cowanesque road. The cemetery is enclosed in a well maintained fence with an ornamental gateway at the entrance inscribed with the legend "MAN GOETH TO HIS LONG HOME."

The association was incorporated by an order of the Court of Common Pleas, of Tioga County, April 21st, 1876. Its officers were: Robert Hammond, president, Charles Tubbs, Secretary, Russel Grandall, Treasurer. The association owns 220 perches of land, one third of which is occupied by the indiscriminate and unregulated buried of the past seventy years and the remainder is divided into symmetrical family burial lots. In the old part of the ground are many unmarked graves.

For the above information we reference 1883 History of Tioga County, Penna. The following inscriptions were copied summer of 1973 by Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd and A. William Ladd, R.D. 3 Box 135, Wellsboro, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, 16901.

Please note: This Cemetery is still in use. The association has purchased adjoining land so descendants of the pioneers can still bury their family here.

I have not alphabetized the burials. The advantage of alphabetization is that you can do a quicker search. The advantage of not alphabetizing is that you get information about who is buried near whom.Use the search engine which is reindexed at least monthly.
