Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
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. 

The following list is part of the Tioga County Cemetery Inscriptions– Volume 1. Cemetery read and published 1970s.
Reprinted with Permission of Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd.

Though there are four large cemeteries here, this, the oldest, has been neglected to extent that it is a mass of briars and weeds, holes and gullies. Stones have sunk into the ground, toppled over and, some used to fill holes.

Here are the names and dates of the Howard ancestors in Blossburg Cemeteries that are _not_ included in the Cemetery indices on line.  Please add their names to the listings.

*Arbon Cemetery*

Hannah Carroll Howard 1828 - 1915
Elmore Carroll Howard 1898 - 1926
Samuel Carroll Howard 1856 - 1938
Jane Howard 1864 - 1948
M. Zoe Howard 1884 - 1967

*Blossburg  Cemetery (Oldest)

This cemetery has a variety of names: Old Cemetery.  Old Union Cemetery and probably others   It is now managed by the Borough.   I have suggested to them that they decide what it is called and post a sign at the cemetery to identify it.
Asher Howard 1858 - 1882

This entry for Asher was probably missed by the reader for the same reason we walked past it about a dozen times without seeing it.   The name Frank Howard is carved on the front side of the obelisk facing the road.   The name Asher Howard is carved on the side facing St. Cemetery.   There is an unmarked head stone leaning against the back of the obelisk that I a suspect is for Henry Keagle Howard.   Alas no proof.

We are enjoying beautiful weather in Belleville.   I hope you are having the same in Tioga county.
