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. 
Potter Brook or Pioneer Cemetery was established 1874. This cemetery is in Potter Brook, Tioga Co., PA. on Route 49 and on the north side of town across from the church. Many stones are too weathered to read.  Others have been overturned or broken. Faith Cary, Eleanor Hurler and Betty Cary read this cemetery in May 2002.  We compared our reading to the Tioga County Cemetery Inscriptions, Vol. 7 (1972)as reprinted on Tri-County Site.  Typed by Betty Cary

Subj:  Additional cemetery data
Date:  9/24/2002 8:43:02 PM Eastern Daylight Time

For several years I've wanted to say THANK YOU for all the time and effort that you've put into the Tri-county website. I've found much useful and needed data therein, and have used it when we've gone to Tioga County. I thought I'd say that now, when I can add a little to the tremendous amount of information you have.

I have additional information about 2 burials in POTTERBROOK CEMETERY.
1)  To the left of the gravestone for "Charles Stebbins   May2,1854-May 11,1884" is a slate grave marker with the initials "CLB" scratched on it. That is the grave of CHAUNCEY L. BUTTON , 1872-1921, son of Abner Button" [What would it take to have that engraved on it????}
2) To the left of that one is a now-almost-unreadable gravestone; it marks the  gravesite of "JULIA BUTTON JEFFERS, Mar 31,1878-Feb 11,1939, daughter of Abner Button, wife of George Jeffers".

I hope that the above info about those people can be entered into permanent records.
Again, thank you for all your work on behalf of all us.

Anthony, husband of Carol Schiraldi
