The re?ecting reader will justly appreciate the difficulties in procuring minute and accurate topographical and statistical information; and will not be surprized if, notwithstanding the efforts of the compiler, by visits to many parts of the state, by personal intercourse with official and intelligent gentlemen of every county, and by laborious research among the public records, some inaccuracies Should be found in the work.

In the first edition of such a work error is unavoidable; but the publisher ?atters himself, that there is not more in this than in others of like character, and that it will prove useful and satisfactory to the public.

It was supposed, when put to press, that the volume, in] eluding a concise historical sketch of the State, would not exceed five hundred pages; but it has swelled considerably beyond that limit, and imposed on the publisher the necessity of omitting the historical sketch, or of giving a meagre and unsatisfactory outline. lie has preferred the former, in the hope that at 110 distant day a second edition will a fiord him an opportunity of presenting a lull historical view of the commonwealth, of supplying any omission, and of correcting any error which may have occurred in the present.

Book Description Closson Press. Condition: BRAND NEW. BRAND NEW Oversized Softcover - 508 pp - 1832 Reprint. Enlarged print. A gazetteer is fundamentally a geographical dictionary which lists names in alphabetical order. Mr. Gordon, an eminent historian in his time, did laborious research of public records and had personal contact with officials of every county in an effort to make this book as complete and accurate as possible. Pennsylvania land record research is often made difficult by the lack of a specific location within a given county. Itís not unusual to find the only description of land is the name of a road, mountain, or a creek mentioned in a deed but which cannot be found on a modern map. Many towns and settlements which existed in previous years either completely disappeared and/or the place names were changed. In these instances, even the best current maps are of no use and earlier century maps are not readily available in most of the United States. For this reason, the value of old gazetteers in locating and identifying our ancestors cannot be overemphasized. Names and locations of all cities, towns, villages, rivers, creeks, mountains, lakes and hamlets that existed in Pennsylvania in 1832, including some of the most unusual places are found in this gazetteer. Once located in this book, in most circumstances, these sites can be correlated in relationship to present day jurisdictions. Statistical tables for each county listing the townships which existed in 1832 as well as population schedules and the number of taxables for each township are included. The last section of the Gazetteer lists all the post offices in the state for that year. A very valuable tool for the genealogist. Enlarged to provide easier reading, this reprint, out-of-print for many years, should be of great value to the genealogist, historian or geographer.
