Subj:  Palmer-Pease Cemetery !!

Hi Joyce,
In Tioga Co., Farmington Twp. the Palmer-Pease Cemetery is listed.
I believe the location is Middlebury Twp.
Was just in Wellsboro and stopped in and talked with Scot at the Historical Society and told him my concerns.  He pulled out the old books and is also convinced.
Also talked to several old residents and all agree.
I grew up about one mile from the location.
Please talk with Scot at your next meeting (this is not a critical problem).
Your site is the greatest source of information (has to be the best in the country).

I visited this cemetery on Sept. 29, 2002.  The following updates location information: The cemetery is located in Middlebury township, Tioga County, PA.  (It is about 1 mile south of the Farmington Twp. line.)  It is located under trees, on a hillside, on the property of Glenn Ames at the intersection of Route 4027 and T829.  It is not visibly a cemetery from the road.  Access is through the pasture and hayfield.  It is small, perhaps 20 yards square.  The cemetery is fenced but in very poor condition.  No stones are standing securely upright.  Because of the leaf cover, the brush and time limitations we did not attempt to read or record all stones.  I wanted to photograph Abraham Palmer's Civil War government marker which I did find, half-buried in the soil.

(I am still seeking documentation of the parents of Abraham Palmer, the Civil War veteran.  I do have his widow's pension papers.)
