Tioga County

Book Description:

History of Tioga County PA. In 1885 the Gazette Company of Elmira New York published a local history book as a premium for the subscribers of the Weekly Gazette and Free Press. This extremely rare book, An Outline History of Tioga and Bradford Counties in Pennsylvania, Chemung, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins and Schuyler in New York, is as meaty as its title. We've broken it into booklets for the benefit of those seeking genealogical clues or historic data on the various counties. The original book was in tiny print on newspaper stock. This 64-page edition of the Tioga County Pennsylvania section is printed one-sided on 60# bond. We've enlarged the print somewhat, although it's still fairly small. There were a few smudges and light spots in the original booklet that we couldn't clear up, however they do not effect readability. The spiral-bound booklet is on 8.5" x 11" paper with the cover protected with a vinyl sheet. Places mentioned in the booklet include: Arnot, Atrim, Bloss Township, Blossburg, Brookfield Twp, Charleston Twp, Chatham Twp, Clymer Twp, Covington Twp, Covington, Daggett's Mills , Deerfield Twp, Delmar Twp, Duncan Twp, Elk Twp, Elkland, Fall Brook, Farmington Twp, Gaines Twp, Gurnee, Hamilton Twp, Jackson Twp, Jackson Summit, Knoxville, Lawrenceville Twp and Borough, Liberty Twp, Mainsburg, Mansfield, Morris Run, Morris Twp, Nelson Twp, Osceola Twp, Richmond Twp, Roseville, Rutland Twp, Shippen Twp, Sullivan Twp, Tioga Twp, Union Twp, Ward Twp, Wellsboro (County Seat), and Westfield Twp. The information, probably gleaned from the pages of old newspaper files, includes hundreds of names -- for as journalists know, names sell newspapers! While many county histories list the names of county officials, this booklet has separate histories for townships and borough, with the names of local officials and early settlers, and the founders or first officers of many local groups. There are also lots of dates to settle all those arguments about which came first: the tavern or the schoolhouse, etc. There are no biographies and details are limited, but if you're searching for names of early Tioga PA residents, this is a good place to start.
