Beginning in November 2009, the Sullivan County Historical Society and Museum (SCHS&M) provided an update that includes previously unlisted interments, as well as obituaries and additional information on several of the interments that we did have. This information was extracted from current and old records in the possesssion of that organization. Where you see "* Per listed obituary", the reference is to Bettyann Sick Goodyear's Registry of Obituaries and Related Photos: 1800-2008. We have color coded revised entries in crimson, and express our sincere appreciaton for this information to our colleagues at SCHS&M and to Bettyann.

In August of 2010, June Howard contributed several pictures of several tombstones and markers from this cemetery. We have linked these pictures in the listing below and color coded the surnames for these entries in green. Naturally, 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.
