"Stephen A. Dodd Born 20 Aug 1836 in Nichols, Tioga, New York; Died 26 Dec 1906 Mountain Lake, Bradford, Pennsylvania; son of Harrison and Elizabeth Dodd." --[info added by Find A Grave Contributor, Terry].

Find A Grave contributor notified by a direct descendant that Stephen Dodd's death certificate gives 20 Dec 1906 as date of death and that he died in Wilmot township, Bradford County, PA.

Directly behind the gravestones for Reuben Detrick's children, plot #8, is a military marker which at the time we cataloged this cemetery several years ago, was in bad condition and extremely difficult to read. We managed to get "___phen A. D.___, the name carved inside a circle on the back of the stone. There was a Veteran 1861-65 standard and US Flag beside the military marker.

Stephen A. Dodd is listed on Bradford County Veteran Burial Maps as #3 for Quicks Bend Cemetery.

From PA Veterans Burial Cards, Stephen A. Dodd served in the Army during the US Civil War. He was a Sergeant in Co. "E" 52nd PA Vols., the document marked "government" headstone. --[info given by "Project No. 18078 - 27798 under dates of 10/20/41 & Mar. 27, 1939 respectively].

You can locate this Vet Burial card on ancestry.com as well as an interesting account of Stephen Dodd in PA, Land Warrants and Applications, where he was an applicant petitioning 5 acres, 13 perches, an Island in the middle of the Susquehanna River, Wilmot Township, commonly called the "Grape Bar". His signature is among the documents.
Stephen had a wife, Betsy Ann b. Oct 1839. They had 10 children, 6 living by the 1900 census.
