I came across a scanned book online that contains tons of info on Washington Co. people in late 1700s and early 1800s. The book is: The First Hundred Years of Townville (Pennsylvania) and Vicinty, by Mary Ann Bidwell Higby of Townville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, 1924.

“Townville and the other places in the central part of Crawford County received nearly all their first settlers from the Whitehall Country.” (“Whitehall Country” defined earlier as Whitehall, Fort Ann, Granville, New York.) Some of the many names listed are: Zephanish Kingsley, John Baker, George Northam, Silas Mason, Harvey Hull, Hollis Hull, Noah Town, Lyman Lorenzo Lamb, Amby Higby, Orange Noble, Thomas Delamater, Ezra Carpenter, Joel Andrus Pond, Harvey Coburn … Moses Gilbert … Samuel Hatch, Luke Hotchkiss …
