Photo of Crippen Burial Ground
by Joyce M. Tice
TOWNSHIP, TIOGA COUNTY, PA.
Located in southeast Rutland township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Early cemetery with several plain fieldstones bearing no inscriptions. Markers copied Aug 1982 by J. Kelsey Jones who submitted his list for the web site.
Update from JMT - Burial Ground is in increasingly poor condition with
most stones toppled and brush having taken over the area.
2007 Update -- Brush cleared. Stones still down, but very greatly improved.
