Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd, formerly of Wellsboro, dedicated a liefetime
to the accumulation of genealogical materials which are available at the
Tioga County Historical Society in Robinson house in Wellsboro, PA. Thanks
to her efforts and accomplishments, today's researchers in Tioga County
have available easily accessible research tools which she compiled. These
include several volumes of newspaper clipping abstracts, lists of the cemetery
burials in the county, Bible records, census data and much more. These
volumes are available in many other libraries as well. At her retirement,
she also donated the personal genealogy library that she and her husband,
William Ladd ,had accumulated. She presently resides out of state, but
I think of her every time I so conveniently walk to my shelves to take
down the abundance of material she made available to us. When we research
in other counties where such materials are not so easily available, we
are reminded how fortunate we are to have had such a committed genealogist
in our county. We can now build our research on the foundation she created.
Thank you, Rhoda.

I am so deeply grateful to you for all of your work! I first encountered your transcriptions when I had the Tioga County Historical Society conduct surname searches for me; (I live in Virginia). Then of course, when I got online about six months ago, I could hardly believe the volume of material available to me -- including so many of your transcriptions -- on Joyce Tice's Tri-Counties Genealogy & History Sites!
I have just found Joyce's webpages that are devoted to you, and I am learning yet more...
ALL of my ancestors on my Father's side were Tioga County residents. Even though my grandparents, Damon and Carrie (Wilcox) Holton left the area in the 1930s, they always maintained close ties, even taking us up for visits. Largely because of your work, I have been able to conduct family research to breadths and depths way beyond my skill level, despite my geographic distance and time constraints.
