Bio and Links
I've been working on genealogy for twelve years, researching both my family and my husband's. My husband and I volunteered for five years at the Yates Co. Genealogical & Historical Society. We are retired and in addition to pursuing our family histories, we enjoying motorcycling and gardening. I am an avid quilter and enjoying reading non-fiction and historical novels. I'm entering our family graves on Find-a-Grave as well as other persons buried in those same cemeteries. Please contact me if you have any questions or corrections.

Tioga County PA Butler Cemetery and Stony Fork Cemetery are one and the same.
Field visit 25 Sep 2011.

At the same approximate coodinates designated by Google as the Butler Family Cemetery (not to be confused with the FindAGrave "Butler Family Cemetery"), is off Stony Fork Road at the southwest edge of a mobile home park in a grove of trees about 1 mile north of Stony Fork Village.

Lat-long 41.682117 -77.358167 elevation 1427 feet

Called the Butler Family Cemetery by local residents and Google, however, although there is a prominent Butler family monument at entrance dated 1907, the cemetery was used by Stony Fork, Delmar Township, Tioga County area residents
in the same era as the Butler family.

The 1907 monument at the entrance dedicates:

Allen Butler b. 1853 d. 30 Nov 1904
h/o Susan
Susan Butler b. unknown d. unknown
w/o Allen Butler
Wellman Butler b. 1801 d. 1884
h/o Susan and Matilda
Matilda Butler b. 1802 d. 1864
w/o Wellman Butler
Nancy Butler b. 1803 d. 1883
w/o Wellman Butler
John M. Butler b. 1830 d. 26 Oct 1905
Amanda M. Butler b. 1835
(perhaps still living 1907)

These are the some of the same names and match monument photos listed in FindAGrave as Stony Fork Cemetery Heise Run. However, Heise Run is 5 miles away.

Summary:
The FindAGrave Tioga County PA cemeteries listed as: "Butler Cemetery" coincides with Google Butler Family Cemetery coodinates
AND
"Stony Fork Cemetery Heise Run" with the Wellman Butler and family monument are one and the same.

These should be merged.

Location of the FindAGrave entitled the "Butler Family Cemetery" is yet to be determined.
