Black Cemetery in Liberty Borough
Located by Rob Schwarz and Dave Darby on Information Received From Harold Brown Using the Tioga County GIS System
Rob Schwarz GPS Coordinates
Location: A Small Deeded Cemetry 325 Yards North of SR 414 or Just East of the Liberty High School Athletic Fields

[A small, old, deeded cemetery just east of the Liberty High School athletic fields. It virtually unknown by the residents of Liberty, Harold Brown a lifelong resident did seem to remember an old, small cemetery located between the High School and downtown Liberty. It was through the use of the Tioga County GIS System that a small parcel of land (.08 of an acre) was located. When the owner of this parcel was queried, the results came back Black Cemetery the owner. Rob Schwarz visited the site and there were at least two stones which were readily readable both with dates in the early 1800’s. There were other stones present but Rob did not attempt to read them. This cemetery should be read while some of the stones are readable. All stones are on the ground.]

January 2009 - I came across a photo of the Little Cemetery which is below the present Liberty High School off Rt 414. It is a very early photo.  Thought perhaps you could use it for your cemeteries on your site. It came from Lucille Kehler collection 
I do not know the name of it but will try to find out.  When I was there the stones were all over & in complete disarray. At that time it was a cow pasture 
Note from Joyce - Sounds like Black Cemetery identified above.

It bears the names and dates of birth and death of Frederick Boger and Sophia, his wife. There are three rows of smaller stones measuring about 16 inches tall. The only inscriptions on these smaller stones are initials (8) and some are blank (5). The 1850 Census reported 13 Bogers living on a 75 acre farm in this area.]
