This is a very, very large cemetery of some 20,000 burials from at least
1868 to the present. It is the major burial place for most residents who
die at this time and for many of our early settlers as well.
FRANTZ Wilson has collected information from many obituaries, death
records, history books, and other records over a lifetime of historical
research. Much of this you will find on file at various local libraries.
She has given generously of her expertise and is one of our most respected
and loved local historians. She has recently made her files available to
the Tri-Counties Site, and they will be prepared for presentation here.
Please be patient as this will take some time. These records still represent
only a partial listing of the burials in this cemetery. Hopefully at some
time in the future we will have the local labor resources to do a reading
of this cemetery. Those of you who need information from this cemetery
are encouraged to be patient and to respect the resources and time of the
local people who are doing all they can to make this and all Tri-County
cemetery listings available to you. (May 2001)

Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
||Do You Know that you can search just the
Bradford County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries
-Bradford 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 - Bradford.
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Ballard or Berrytown] 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.

I am adding the notes from guests exactly as they are
written to just this one page so that changes can be recorded. At some
point I will try to find time to go in and make individual changes, but
this is the best I can do at this time.

Heard from Linda Puterbaugh about this web site and the errors listed
for me and my husband. They must have gotten this info from the Bradford
County Historical Society book and a lot of it is wrong and was never proof
read after typing. I have been in contact with them (both with two
letters of correction) but the last I knew they never put out a correction.
They just ordered more books and did not correct them because it was too
expensive to do.
I will appreciate it if you would correct this web site to read as follows
Wm. Howard House was born August 12, 1930.
Wm. Howard House died Feb. 5, 1970
I am Phyllis Jean McCarroll House. Not McConnell!
My parents are Charles Harrison McCarroll and Cora Alvesta Hunsinger
The reason I used my mothers middle name is because there were two
maiden name Cora Hunsingers and only the middle name differenciates them.
These corrections need to be made under H4. I am going to go in
under the McCarrolls and see if that is listed right.
Thanks for your help. Hope you get this.

Clarence McCarroll - my uncle and per Death Certificate
Born Oct. 25, 1892.
Died Dec. 14, 1944.
Wife - Ella Rogers McCarroll married August 4, 1928.
I haven't found where Ella is buried but her family being local my
guess is Tioga Point.
Another correction -
They have a listing of Clarence Harrison with info as listed for
Charles & Cora McCarroll. There is no such Clarence
Harrisonl. I don't even know Uncle Clarence's middle name.
This is a duplication under a wrong name and should be deleted.
If you wish to correct this small error - M2

Good Morning Joyce,
There is a listing in the Tioga Point Cemetery, Athens, PA that
is not correct and the information should be removed. Alice Marjorie
Saxon was a sister to my mother and when I saw this info during the night
in my search through your files, I just happened upon the info looking
for Gowin info, it got my attention. At your convenience, please
remove her from the Tioga Point Cemetery file:
Tioga Point Cemetery, Athens, PA
McEwell, A. Marjorie Saxon June 25, 1923 Terry Twp, Pa. - Apr. 20,
1996 Terry Twp, Pa. Dau. of Cameron and Carrie Johnson Gowin. Wife of Joel
Correct Info: Marjorie is buried in the Powell PA Cemetery.
There was a graveside service on Thursday, April 25, 1996 at 11:00 AM.
Rev. Alan Hulslander officiated. Mother looked up the newspaper
clipping to confirm this information.
Have a great day! Char
I am not sure how to submit corrections. But I hope this is the way
to do it. My grandfather Joseph Walter Merritt is buried at Tioga Point
Cemetery with my grandmother Lois Louise (Eberlin). Grandma's information
is listed, but Grandpa's is not. He was born 10 Nov 1924 in Greens Landing,
PA. and passed away in May 1995 at his home in Center Lisle,Broome Co.,
NY due to a heart attack. Also at the same location that my grandparents
are buried there are 3 babies buried, but with no stones or markers. The
babies are Joseph and Lois's son Walter Allen Merritt b: 8 Feb 1949 in
Sayre, Bradford, PA and died 30 May 1949; Joseph and Lois's granddaughter
Gloria Jean Elder; and also their grandson Joseph Leon Eaton.(my brother)
who was born 13 Dec 1975 at Ideal Hospital, Endicott, Broome, NY and passed
away 14 Dec 1975 at Wilson Memorial Hospital, Johnson City, Broome, NY.
I just thought that this information would make your records more accurate.
Thank you for such a wonderfully informed site full of so much information.
