Briggs Cemetery, Middlebury, Tioga, PA, USA

Notes: Joyce M Tice, "Tri-Counties Genealogy & History" writes: "These two [Briggs one and Briggs two] very old burial grounds are located in a difficult to accesss back area of Route 287 in Middlebury on private land. This area was once nearer a road than it is now. The relocation of the roads isolated these small burial grounds. One can drive part way on a farm path and then walk a mile or so to the grounds. The smaller of the two contains maybe eight to ten graves all marked only with uninscribed field stones. The second burial ground is in a wooded area maybe 1500 feet from it. It has recently (2006) been cleared of multiflora rose and grapevine that had choked it. It has possibly 50 to 70 burials but only a dozen are inscribed tombstones. Many graves are marked by both headstone and footstone, consisting of fields tones brought up from the creek below, are very short, indicating a large number of children. The oldest stone that could be read was about 1824 which indicates the earliest pioneer population.
