Joyce's Search Tip - November 2008
Do You Know that you can search just the 700 pages of School Records on the site  by using the Schools button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page?  You can narrow your search by entering a township name and a surname and using the Find All Words option

Gafford School District in the southeast corner of Sullivan Township is mostly "on the mountian," Armenia Mountain that is. It borders Ward Township to the south in Tioga County  which once was part of Sullivan Township, and Armenia Township in Bradford County. The township always was sparsely populated and is even moreso in the present time. It is still all dirt roads.

It is a little known fact that the remains of the Gafford School were moved down "off the mountain" and attached to the State Road Baptist Church where it remains to this day.
