  • There are 67 counties in Pennsylvania:  Outline Map of the Counties of Pennsylvania.
  • The first Pennsylvania counties were formed in 1682; county names and boundaries did not stabilize until 1878 which means for nearly 200 years they were changing!
  • County evolutions were compiled from information at the various PAGenWeb county sites and by using "AniMap" software from Gold Bug.
  • Township and borough names on this page are from the 1990 Municipal Census Profiles at the Pennsylvania State Data Center.
  • USGenWeb's collection of Pennsylvania Maps.
  • United States Digital Map Library: Pennsylvania (online in the USGenWeb Archives).
  • I'm told that William L. Iscrupe's book Pennsylvania Line:  a Research Guide to Pennsylvania Genealogy and Local History (1990, Southwest Pennsylvania Genealogical Services, Laughlintown, PA) is a good source for county and township histories.
  • One of the most useful books any genealogist can own is:
    • Webster's New Geographical Dictionary.  G. & C. Merriam Co., Springfield, MA.  (My edition is 1977, but I'm sure there must have been later ones.  In addition to just place names and their locations, it includes historical notes and capsule histories for many locations.)
  • Johns Hopkins University Color Landform Atlas of the United States, including individual states, such as this shaded relief map of Pennsylvania. [Kewl!]
  • General geographic search engines:  Geographic Nameserver at MIT; GNIS (USGS Geographic Names Information System); United States Town/County Database search engine at RootsWeb.com; Global Gazetteer.
  • Townships/Boroughs in the 1790 PA Census and what counties they later ended up in.

TOWNSHIP HISTORY (Bell 1891):  Northumberland Co. ceded the following townships in 1813: to Columbia Co. went Bloom, Brier Creek, Catawissa, Chillisquaque, Derry, Fishing Creek, Greenwood, Hemlock, Mahoning, Mifflin, Sugar Loaf, and Turbot; to Union Co. went Beaver, Buffalo, Centre, Hartley, Mahantango, Penn, West Buffalo, and White Deer.  In 1815, Turbot and Chillisquaque were reannexed to Northumberland.  "Turbot" is the current official spelling, but you will often see it spelled "Turbut" or "Turbet" in historical documents.  (The Washington Twp. in Snyder Co., today, was formed in 1818 from Penn Twp. while in Union Co., i.e., the Washington Twp. currently in Snyder Co. was a new creation and not originally part of the Washington Twp. currently in Northumberland Co.)

In the 1830 Census, there was an Augusta Twp. in Northumberland Co.  Presumably, this township was later divided into the Upper and Lower Augusta Twps. above.  Ditto Chillisquaque, into East and West sections, which also occurs in the 1840 Census.

PERRY COUNTY 
FORMATION:  1820 from Cumberland Co.  The region that would become Perry Co. was Amerindian territory prior to a treaty in 1754 that annexed the region into Cumberland Co.  In 1820, Perry Co. was formed from seven Cumberland Co. townships, namely:  Buffalo, Greenwood, Juniata, Rye, Saville, Tyrone, and Toboyne.

SNYDER COUNTY 
FORMATION:  1855 from southern Union Co.  It's boundaries have not changed since.

TOWNSHIPS as of 1990 (formation dates):  Adams (1874), Beaver (1787), Center (1805), Chapman (1820), Franklin (1853), Jackson (1854), Middlecreek (1838), Monroe (1856), Penn [historically Penns/Penn's] (1758), Perry (1816), Spring (1885), Union (1869), Washington (1818), West Beaver (1843), West Perry (1858).

EXTINCT TOWNSHIP (Bell 1891):  Mahantango Twp. was formed in 1795 from Penn's Twp.  In 1816, Mahantango Twp. ceded land to Perry Twp. and, in 1818, to Washington Twp., at which point Mahantango Twp. ceased to exist.  Perry and Washington Twps. were further subdivided to form West Perry, Chapman, and Union Twps.  These were among the townships ceded by Union Co. to form Snyder Co. in 1855.  Therefore, inhabitants shown living in "Mahantango Twp., Northumberland Co." in the 1800 or 1810 censuses were actually living in what later became south-central and southeastern Snyder Co.

BOROUGHS as of 1990:  Beavertown, Freeburg, McClure, Middleburg, Selinsgrove, Shamokin Dam.
