Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on on the site by using the Cemeteries -Chemung 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 - Chemung
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Comfort or Carr] 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. 
Name of Cemetery:   Lockwood Cemetery - borders on Barton Twp., Tioga Co., NY (Rows 1-7) and Chemung Twp., Chemung Co., NY (Rows 8-15)
Read By: Marcia Simons Jankowski
Date Read:  July 3, 1999 - Oct 17, 1999
Typed By:  Marcia Simons Jankowski
Location: Town of Lockwood, Barton Twp., Tioga Co., N.Y.

Lockwood is on N.Y. Route 34 about halfway between Waverly and VanEtten. Turn West at the fire station onto Lockwood Run Road (now called Main Street) and take the first left onto Church Street. After going over the little bridge, immediately take a right turn up a dirt lane and follow it into the cemetery. The cemetery is not visible from below. From what I have been able to determine,  Rows 1-7 are in Barton Township, Tioga Co., N.Y. and Rows 8-15 are in Chemung Township. Chemung Co., N.Y. All rows were read from North to South, subjectively calling the first row on the East, Row 1, and the last row on the West, Row 15.
[If you ever want to change the wording on the site to make it simpler:
"Turn West at the fire station onto Lockwood Run Road (now called Main Street)" should really read "Turn West at the fire station on to Main Street." (There is a street sign)]

  Names of people who appear to be still living have been removed. Any questions or transcriptions can be rechecked by request to Marcia Jankowski (marjonpc@aol.com).  I also have available a Plot map (probably from 1888?), kindly provided by Bill Hotchkiss, Superintendent of the Town of Barton, for the old area of the cemetery in Barton Township, which is how the county boundaries were determined. I donít know if the boundaries have changed since that time. Lot holders were as follows:

VanEtten, Geo. Thomas, ? Thomas, Campbell, ?. Fleming, Asa Williams, R. Johnson, Green, Gordon, Hagadorn, Wright, A.T. Barden, Huldah Wilson, B. Cornell , W. S. Barrows, Peter Miller, V. Waling, W.
