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.

Comments by Joyce M. Tice - Cemetery is badly overgrown as of Autumn 2005. Mr. West, who lives at base of the hill on which it is located, can no longer keep it clean as he did for so many years.

Carpenter Burials are located on Rte. 249 about 1/2 mile from  Middlebury Center. There are three graves marked with only field stones. Supposedly some graves were moved to Keeneyville (Middlebury Union Cemetery), but we do not have documentation on that. Presently only one engraved tombstone is present.

Locey Creek Cemetery, Day Cemetery - Tombstone listing 2005 under preparation.

Photos by Joyce M. Tice 31 OCT 2005
This cemetery is entirely engulfed in a thicket of honeysuckle shrubs. While they protect the cemetery, they also limit access. This cemetery must be entered on one's hands and knees - a hard hat and safety glasses would also be helpful. As of April 2006, the cemetery has been cleaned up and we will be going in shortly for a better reading.

See Also Locey Creek - Day Family Obituary page



The following sent in by a Day family member.
I know that most of the stones were leaning up against a tree. I tried to get my brother to clear out the Honeysuckle & other nuisance bushes.......but he never gets around to it. It is fearful that if we remove too much, the creek may erode the bank more. I had wanted to erect a plexiglas protected map stand there.

Our Great-Great-Great Grandfather John Day is buried there ......he died Apr 4, 1850 At age 64, 9 mos & 22 days. If my calculations are correct, his birthdate should be Jun 13, 1785. His wife Electa Wormer Day is buried in a Cemetery on another DAY farm in Youngsville, Warren Co., PA
