March 16, 1819, an act was passed providing for the separate and independent organization of Warren County.

Finding your family genealogy in northwestern Pennsylvania is complicated due in part to changing county and township boundaries. Prior to becoming Warren, this land was also part of AlleghenyCrawford, Lycoming, Northumberland and Venango counties. Township boundaries changed; a few townships were divided and dissolved.
