Greetings.
Over the past 2 weeks I have spent about 8 hours at Bloomfield. I have been over every inch of every stone. As I mentioned before there ARE a few headstones that are face down, several more that are worn down to illegibility, and more that are just plain missing. (stolen/vandalized/wood ones that have rotten away)
I have emailed the Cemetery Association, and there ARE some old records. I'll see if he would be willing to see if he can find a location.

Greetings!

I have been through Bloomfield on several occasions looking for any stone that had no photograph.
I can't say with 100% certainty, but after many hours there, I doubt there is a stone to find.
The creator of the memorial, Eileen, used old county records to create this memorial.
I do know that the cemetery went through a time of disuse and neglect until several volunteers stepped up to restore the cemetery.

I would be happy to go back and look again for Charles in particular, but it may be some time before I can get out there. If someone else wants to look, that's fine too!

If the request is not claimed, let it sit there, and when I can get to it I can. That's how I got started out there, there was a request for Bloomfield that was up for ages and ages... then I decided to go look!

Ebenezer Seelye
Hi Michael,

I noticed that you ask for a photo of Ebenezer and Mehitable Seelye's headstone. There aren't any headstones. Many Quakers did have headstones but if there ever were headstone they are gone now.

This is my source: 1897 History of Tioga County, Pennsylvania, Chapter 14, page 206, -- Early Settlers Who Were Revolutionary Soldiers --
Ebenezer Seelye, a native of Connecticut, settled immediately east of Academy Corners in 1798, and resided there until his death, June 23, 1837, in the eighty second year of his age. He served throughout the Revolutionary War in Sheldon's Light Horse, a Connecticut company, and a portion of the time under Washington. Before coming to Tioga county he became a Quaker, and was a consistent adherent of that faith during the remainder of his life. He lies buried in the old Quaker burying ground at Knoxville.

Your welcome Michael. I live in Georgia. I saw your posting on facebook and went to your mother's page. Something told me to sponsor her page so I listened to my heart. I am so sorry for your loss.

RE: find grave
I was able to post the photographs of the cemetery stones, but since I was not the person who originally posted the information on your relatives I cannot add or change any information. I can add a comment with the photo, but that does not show up in the proper categories. If you contact the person who originally created and submitted the information, hopefully they will add the information you want. The name of the person that originally posted the information is listed under `created by' on the webpage.
