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. 



Located in south central Rutland township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania near the Sullivan township line in the northwest corner of VanNess Hill crossroads. The oldest marker with an inscription is dated 1837 for Almeda Reynolds. Markers copied August 1982 by J. Kelsey Jones.

This cemetery is in abominable condition at this time (October 2001) Tombstones are toppled, briars and other brush have taken over. Many tombstones are buried and broken. Very poor condition. This is located at the crossroads north of  Tears Corners (Sullivan Township) in the most southern part of Rutland Township.
May 2007- The Doxtaders have cleaned up the cemetery. Millie Doxtader note : Mike and Walter Sherman set up the stones, the township brought in some dirt and Mike has been filling in the “sunken” parts of the cemetery with the use of Dean McKay tractor. It really looks like a cemetery now and it is almost done. Maybe we may even have some family members stop,which would be great.
 THANKS to those who did  this. Terrific!!!  Mike and Walter Sherman are Reynolds - Smith descendants. Millie and Mike Doxtader are not related to anyone in the cemetery so they deserve special credit for taking responsiblity for this little burial ground next to their house. See updated photos at bottom of page.
