BEDFORD COUNTY, PA QUARTER SESSIONS, 1771-1801
presentation

The Bedford County Historical Society is hosting a special presentation on Saturday, November 12, 2011, at 1:00 pm. He will be presenting his book, "Bedford County, PA Quarter Sessions, 1771-1801," which includes abstracts of Docket 1 (1771-1789) and Docket 2 (1777-1801) which both begin with events at the formation of the county. Docket 1 begins with case entries and Docket 2 begins with oaths of office and oaths of allegiance; thus at the formation of the county two registers were kept concurrently. While most of this work abstracts court case information, certain items of historical interest, such as the oaths, are fully transcribed.

 

The presentation is free and open to the public; donations are welcome. There will be refreshments following the presentation.

 

For more information, contact the Society at 814-623-2011, bedfordhistory@embarqmail.com, www.bedfordpahistory.com or stop by 6441 Lincoln Hwy, Bedford.
