Old Shellman Cemetery (aka Woodbury) Chatham Township,
Tioga County, Pa 2012
The old family burial ground is located in Chatham Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania on Swing Gate Road, 1/2 mile west of the intersection with R436 (Dug Road). It is 260 feet south of Swing Gate Road in a clump of trees and shrubs. It is also located 290 feet west-southwest of the NW corner of the nearby pond. The burial ground is located on private property, owned by Mr. And Mrs. Ric Vespe.
The Old Shellman cemetery is a family burial ground with two visible fallen headstones. It is overgrown and in poor condition. There is some evidence of possible other burials but visual inspection and probing did not locate other headstones in 2012. Due to woodchuck activity, the two sunken areas are in doubt as to whether they are burials. Stones turned up by tree growth and thrown into the area from the fields has confused the evidence to whether there are field stone markers.
