Westfield ,Tioga County PA

This is from Tioga County Cemetery Inscriptions, Vol. 2, reprinted with permission of Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd . The Swimelar Cemetery is practically a family cemetery but also contains the remains of early settlers in this neighborhood. Located on Route 58114 between Westfield and Sabinsville. Road is called Broughton Road also referred to as "Mud Road". Inscriptions copied by Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd & . William Ladd ca 1970-72. 
Even though the 1897 Tioga County history describes this as being in Clymer Township, it is just over the border in Westfield Township. It is within sight of the township line, but is clearly on the Westfield side of the township marker on the road.
