COLUMBIA COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA
2016-USGenWeb Celebrating 20 Years!
The book, History of Columbia and Montour Counties, Pennsylvania, edited by: J. H. Battle, 1887, has tons of information. This site does not contain a complete copy of this book but it does contain portions of the book that deal with the local histories of Columbia County's Townships. These have been transcribed from the book by the volunteer listed on each page.
Many of these histories include the names of Columbia County's earliest settlers. Some families are only mentioned briefly, while others receive more attention. I hope you are able to find someone you are looking for. A complete copy of the book with all sketches can be found on the Archive.org website at
History of Columbia and Montour Counties (1887), by J. H. Battle.
NOTE: Some townships are combined into chapters. Therefore, each township may not start on a full page. You may find the same page numbers on two different townships. It doesn't mean that there is an error. The page numbers are included in case you want to refer to a page in the book. Also, when a sketch is included, a history may appear to be missing a page. The book puts a blank page on the reverse side of the sketch.
