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. 



Located in southeast Rutland township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Early cemetery with several plain fieldstones bearing no inscriptions. Markers copied Aug 1982 by J. Kelsey Jones who submitted his list for the web site.

Update from JMT - Burial Ground is in increasingly poor condition with most stones toppled and brush having taken over the area.
2007 Update -- Brush cleared. Stones still down, but very greatly improved.
