Note from JMT 2007 -- This is referred to in older books as the Tioga Village Cemetery. There are some significant errors in this listing. We are in process of preparing a new one with some changes and LCR has also dug up several large stones that had never been read including four from the McKinney family.

From the Tioga Eagle, Wellsboro, PA; 8 Sept. 1853:
"In Tioga township in the 27th [of Aug], Mrs. Lucy Hotchkiss in the 85th year of her age.  Consort of Harris Hotchkiss, Mrs. Hotchkiss was one of the first who settled on the banks of the Tioga River, nearly 50 years ago.  She lived to a ripe old age. Respected by an extensive circle of friends and died surrounded by a large family of children, 19 in number, nearly all of whom are residents of this county.  Mr. Hotchkiss is still living, now bereft of the partner and choice of his youth who journeyed with him through life for so many years."

Tioga Eagle - Dec. 7, 1854 issue: Died at Tioga, on the 23rd ultimo, Mr. Harris Hotchkiss, aged 96 years, a soldier of the Revolution. He was born in New Haven, Conn. in the year 1758. As a soldier of our Revolution he fought gallantly for our liberties, was a prisoner in the prison ship and sugar house in New York.
