In August 2005, Deb Wilson sent us the beautiful pictures of the cemetery shown at the head and foot of the transcriptions. She also offered to post pictures of selected tombstones and markers from this cemetery. We will link these pictures as they become available and are appreciative of Deb's efforts in this regard. She is a descendant of the Keeler family from the Davidson/Nordmont area.

In April 2010, June Howard contributed pictures of several tombstones and markers from this cemetery. We have linked these pictures in the listing below. We are much appreciative of June's efforts in this regard. She is a descendant of the Rowe, Molyneux and Tomlinson families of Sullivan County, and is related by marriage to the Vough family. You can learn more about these families at
The Grain of Salt in Streby...Early Settlers of Lycoming County.

Beginning in August 2013, the Sullivan County Historical Society (SCHS) contributed updated listings and obituary postings periodically to this page. These inputs are marked in crimson. We are grateful for their participation.
