Cemetery notes and/or description:
Members of the DeWitt and Joralemon families were the first to be buried in
the cemetery. These families came to Wells and Columbia Townships from
Sussex County, New Jersey. Azuba DeWitt wife of John Joralemon, Elizabeth
DeWitt wife of James Joralemon, John Bostwick DeWitt, Joseph Hopkins DeWitt,
and Doctor Barnet DeWitt were all siblings. These families were instrumental
in forming the Methodist Church and several members of these families
entered the ministry. The oldest dated marker in the cemetery is that of
Mary Elizabeth Gifford who died in 1841, but she was perhaps reinterred
there. Sarah, wife of Joseph H. DeWitt, died in 1842.

Michael Rozell and Elizabeth his wife for $1 deeded on 24 November 1852 to
Silas Davey, John J. Barnes, Thomas Baker, Alson LaRue, and Whiting Gifford,
their heirs or successors, 1 acre. The Trustees of the Estate of William
Bingham deceased (wealthy Philadelphian who had originally owned much of
Wells Township) had set apart for the use of the inhabitants a burying
ground of 1 acre and "said ground is now occupied for purposes aforesaid"
and the trustees conveyed 14 7/10 acres including the burying ground to
Michael Rozell by deed dated 1 September 1852 (Bradford County deed Liber
38:157).
