Cemetery is located in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, southeast of Mainesburg on the Krause farm and quite some distance from the road. This is one of the oldest burial grounds in the southern portion of the township. It is related that members of the Doud family were the first to be interred there, but it soon became a community burial ground. The oldest marker is of native stone and bears the date of 1815 and is that of Isabella wife of Peleg Doud. As with any cemetery of this era there are several native stones placed as markers bearing no inscriptions.  Markers copied September 1983 by J. Kelsey Jones.

Mrs. Susannah Austin [Susannah CUDWORTH SRGP 02208]
In Sullivan, August 24, 1862, Mrs. Susannah Austin, aged 83 years, and 4 months.  The deceased whose maiden name was Cudworth, came with her husband, Noah Rumsey into the township of Sullivan about the year 1800(?).  The family were formerly from Vermont, whence they emigrated to Northern New York, and thence in this County.  She had 14 children by her first husband, nine of whom are still living, eight in Sullivan and one in the far west.  She had 53 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.  A few years ago she was married to Luther Austin whom she survived.  She was a woman of great purity of life, and was a consistent member of the Baptist Church for over 40 years.  (Wednesday, August 27, 1862, The Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Isabel RUMSEY "Doud" [SRGP 02224]
In Hubbardton, the 7th inst. of a pulmoninc complaint, Mr. DANIEL RUMSEY, in the 68th year of his age. In Covington, Pennsylvania, on the 19th of June last, Mrs. ISABEL DOUD, (his daughter,) in her 44th year. Mr. Rumsey was a professor of religion, which was exemplified by a correspondent deportment that endeared him to his acquaintance. who mourn the loss of a kind neighbor, and benefactor. The fruits of his pious examples and instructions were not without their benign influence on his children. Mrs Doud, died in the triumphs of faith: and we trust that she and her deceased father, (although their graves are at a distance from each other) are crowns of each others rejoicing in the world of spirits. We hope that the repeated adverse dispensations of divine providence will not swell the tide of grief, and overwhlem in sorrow the disconsolate widow and bereaved children. The remains of Mr. Rumsey were conmmitted to the grave on Moday, the 9th. A large and sympathetic concourse attended his funeral. A sermon was delivered in the occasion by the Rev. Lemuel Haynes, of West Rutland, from 1. Cor. 15.57 But thanks be to God which giveth us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ.
