On www.joycetice.com/cemt/nelsona12.htm there are two entries for 'Sturoivant', one for T. B. (of Co. B, NY Cav.) and one for Matilda. On www.joycetice.com/kelsey/kjws2b.htm you will find
6. Thomas Baker Sturdivant b. c. 1825 enumerated 1850 census of Jackson Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania with wife Matilda b. 1826. Thomas served in Company B, New York Calvary during the Civil War. Enumerated in Mansfield, Tioga County in 1880 in the home of daughter Nancy, Thomas a blacksmith. Thomas was in Nelson in 1899. Matilda d. 1900 (ts) Nelson Cemetery, Nelson, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Thomas has only a military marker with no dates inscribed.
One of the differences on this page from the corresponding info from the 1971 reading on www.joycetice.com/cemt/nelson05.htm is that Alanson Hoyt and wife Mary Ann (Lugg) Hoyt show full dates for their deaths in the new reading, but only had years for their deaths in the previous one. There are a number of other cases where a year only has become a full date. Is this because the new reading was done more carefully (or with better techniques) or because the reading was supplemented with data from other sources? [Note from JMT - the latter. We have not taken the same shortcuts our predecessors did. If our listing was supplemented with additional sources, our pages would say so.Our 2007 reader copies the wording of the tombstones- no more -no less. ]
On www.joycetice.com/cemt/nelsona13.htm there is a similar situation. Benjamin Parks and wife Mary (Campbell) Parks have full death dates on the 2007 reading, but only had death years in the 1971 reading on www.joycetice.com/cemt/nelson01.htm The death year to death date difference also exists for William Merritt and wife Eliza/Elizabeth Hazlett Merritt. Her name shows as "Eliza A. Hazlett Merritt" in the 1971 reading, on www.joycetice.com/cemt/nelson03.htm, and "Elizabeth Ann Merritt" in the 2007 reading.
The name of Ellen Stoddard, wife of Charles Fowler Merritt, shows on the 1971 reading as "Ellen L. Merritt" and on the 2007 reading as "Ellen J. Merritt". The Wellsboro Agitator of Nov 1, 1933, p1 has her as "Mrs. Ellen J. Merritt", so presumably the new reading is correct.
Adelia J. Merritt's death is shown as "1851, age 1 year" in the 1971 reading and as :9/5/1851, 1y10m25d" in the 2007 reading.
Otis Richards death is shown in the 1971 reading as "1891 65 years" and in 2007 as "5/27/1894 65 yr". (I believe 1894 is correct.)
On www.joycetice.com/cemt/nelsona14.htm the 3 entries for "Basard' should read 'Bosard'. And the first, 'Malgiah' is a mistake. His wife is/was a relative of mine. He is shown in Munsell's 1883 History on www.joycetice.com/1883/osceo2.htm as "Malachi D. Bosard" and again on www.joycetice.com/1897/ch60d.htm as "M. D. Bosard". On www.joycetice.com/document/tcdockb2.htm he is shown as "Melchia D. Bosard". Genealogist, Wm. E. Selph, Jr. has his name as "Malchia D. Bosard".
The 1972 reading had "Wm. H. Baxter 1832 1902 b. NY". For 2007 it's "William H. Baxter 1/6/1832 6/7/1902" (the full dates are supported by newspaper articles).
The 2007 reading for Carrie A. (Amanda BUCKBEE) Hazlett has no birth date for her but shows 5/22/1840 as her death date. The 1971 reading correctly has that as her birth date, and no death date. She was the wife of Edgar Hopestill Hazlett (1843 - 1910), and mother of Ernest M. Hazlett (1872 - 1898). I don't know her death date, but it's after 1922.
Similarly the 2007 reading for Polly (CADY) Preston has no death date for her but shows 18/1848 as her birth date. I believe that the 1971 reading correctly show it as her death date (no birth date) and that she was the first wife of Asa Preston (1803 - 1874). I believe Asa's 2nd wife was Betsey (LOCKWOOD) Bottum Preston (1817 - 1870), who 1st married Nathan S. Bottom.
