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.

This Old cemetery is on State Route 2014 as it loops around in the bend of the Susquehanna on the way to the Aslyum Methodist Church and the present day Frenchtown Cemetery. This old cemetery is in two sections. This monument at the top is in a field where the road turns. It is surrounded by a metal bar fence and you really can't miss it. The other and much larger part of the cemetery is in the woods beside the field and that would be easy to miss. It is, however, adjacent to the road and very easy to get to. 

September 1999 photos by Joyce M. Tice and the May 2000 photos are by Dick McCracken & Joyce M. Tice.

Update :: In early May of 2000, logs were removed, at the request of the landowner,  as a first step in getting this cemetery into better condition. Many of the stones have fallen over and been covered with leaves and growth. As of May 6, some of the stones have been read by our local crew, but many others have to be dug up and that will take some time - and EFFORT. At left below, Kevin, Lynn, Ken and Pat demonstrate Team Work at Old Frenchtown.
