Introduction by Florence Parks

Mt. Pleasant Cemetery , located in Westfield Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, was incorporated on April 19, 1892, in the court of Common Pleas by the Honorable John I. Mitchell, according to Tioga County records.

It was established to exist perpetually and “ providing and maintaining a suitable place for the burial of the dead.”  The officers and incorporators, being O.A. Tremain, president; Albert Baker, secretary; Clarence Hancock, treasurer; James Tubbs, superintendent; and J.W. Hancock, James Champlin, and John G. Bowan.  The first subscribers were:  Albert Baker, E.M. Gardner, L.H. Knapp of Westfield and Hiram Hunter, Cowanesque, PA.

It is located on over forty acres of a beautiful hillside, rising above Westfield, PA, north  of the town, with a private road leading from the east end of Mill Street, near the intersection of the California Road.  Burials are on several levels, some extending along the access roads.  The uppermost  plots, with some of the earliest burials, are at the very top of the hill and accessible by a  narrow hill road. There are many early burials in the lowest section although newer burials have been, and are continually being added.

Access roads to the lower levels are now very adequate and the cemetery has undergone much improvement since the last records were obtained.  This beautiful acreage was not appreciated during past years when maintenance was not available.  However, now it is well-taken care of by dedicated individuals who have been determined to restore it as their ancestors envisioned.

When the recording was done many years ago by Eagle Scouts Bradley Hunt and Bill Tubbs, they established a plot identification system.  This was an extremely difficult task because all but a small section was overgrown, and they worked with great disadvantages.  We have continued to list their plot numbers but sections may not follow through as consistently since it has been cleared and improved.  We have not assigned numbers to those recently found or new burials added.

There were many stones that were barely legible and we have attempted to identify them as accurately as possible.  As hard as recorders try, there will always be errors.

Location:  Lowest level - First road to the left, beginning on the left (south) side, running westward
