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 on the north side of Scouten Road in the western portion of Sullivan Township near the Sullivan-Richmond Township line. See 1875 atlas of Sullivan where George Seelye resided and the cemetery would be across the road from the residence.
Markers copied October 1983 by J. Kelsey Jones. Seely and Seelye appear on markers and are given below as they appear.
Note from JMT. The markers are still intact at the present (1999/2000) but the area is overgrown and not protected in any way. I would say that this burial ground is threatened.
