Permission Granted by Rhoda for reprint on Tri-Counties Site

Spelling of names and places are copied as in the books, though they may look like mistakes. In some cases, the name is spelled several different ways. Father and son, will have different spellings.

The date at the heading of will or administration is the probate date.

Date of death was not required until 1874. I have put in, in quotes dates of death taken from our cemetery books, where I was sure.

Bonds, Bail, and Sureties were money put in for security by the administrators.

Abbreviations of words, most are as follows -

Exec. - Executor or Executrix

Adm. - Administrators

Wit. - Witnesses

Appr. - Appraisers

The first book of wills of Tioga County only went to 1860 and the index was poor. It also included some Orphans Court, naming guardians for minor children.

The Registers Docket has interspersed with the wills this information.
