Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the Bradford County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Bradford 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 - Bradford. 
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Ballard or Berrytown] 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. 
Bailey Cemetery--No. 115  Located on T 547 north off Route 6, about on the Township line between North Towanda and Burlington-- on a steep hill on the North side of the road.  It is accessible only on foot, and on private property so permission should be obtained.  The cemetery is fenced.  Quite a few stones are believed to be flattened and overgrown.  Copied by Ellen R. Glueck in 1976.  (retyped for Tri-Counties by Reva Wagner)

I saw you just added the Bailey Burial Ground reading to the website.  I wanted to share these photos taken in July 2003 of some of the stones in this cemetary.

Dennis Carter now owns the old Bailey farm.  He was gracious enough to accompany me up the hill to the cemetery during my research trip to Bradford County.  He helped me pull back the weeds covering some of these stones.  One of these pics is of the grand oak tree that stands over the cemetery.

Please note there is a photo of Electa Baldwin Bailey's stone, b. 1822 d. 14 Sep. 1881.  She is the wife of Jeremiah Bailey b. 19 Nov 1817 d. 1891.  Electa is not listed in this reading; but since this stone is there, I would think it safe to assume she is there as well.  The stone is hard to read unless you zoom in on the photo.

Also shown on the photo of Thomas J. Bailey and Lydia, his wife, Lydia's dates are given as follows...b. 22 Nov 1844 d. 8 Jan 1873.  The reading gives her dates as identical to Thomas'.
