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. 
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

Hi Joyce,

I have been researching some new-found ancestors who lived in Tioga co., PA. The names were Peter W. GRIFFIN and Sarah (FOSDICK) GRIFFIN who lived in Clymer twp., Tioga co., PA from 1852 until their deaths after the 1870 census.  (They were both born in 1795 in Clinton, Dutchess co., NY & moved to Steuben co., NY before 1840.)  They were buried in Potter(brook) cemetery Tioga co., PA /Potter co., PA - but were listed as Peter W. and Sarah F. "GRIDLEY" instead of GRIFFIN.  This occurred on both versions for the Potterbrook cemetery.  However, has a 3rd version that lists them as GRIFFIN.  I am sure that the "GRIDLEYS" are a match for my GRIFFINS, from their birthdates and the fact that they are buried next to
Jane GRIFFIN TANNER (their daughter, b. 1829).  They also have a son-in-law in the cemetery (Osborn WYATT, husband of their dau Mary GRIFFIN) and a grandaughter (Sarah WYATT, wife of Alvah STILES) in Potterbrook cemetery.  I could find no other burial for a Peter & Sarah GRIFFIN in Tioga co. or surrounding area.

All the best to you in the New Year,

Linda Z. O'Halloran 

Hi Joyce,
I don't know if you make the corrections or additions to cemeteries or not but wanted to tell you that in Potter brook cemetery there is DALABA Maria
1868 1903  (Mariah Myra MARVIN "Dalaba") Her husband Soloman Dalaba is also supposed to be there. Another stone that I have information on is Julia Lillian Button Jeffers b. March 31, 1878 d. February 11, 1939. wife of George Benjamin Jeffers. I also have her parents names if you want it.
Thanks Bea Daggett
