This 19th-century work, written in the flowery language of the time, gives a detailed picture of early Delaware County. Beginning with descriptions of the native Indian tribes, the book also discusses English, Dutch and German Palatine settlement. Much attention is focused on the activities that took place during the Revolutionary War, including Sullivan’s expedition against the Indians, and numerous tales of Indian captivities and outrages on the frontier settlements. There is also a biography of the famed rifleman, Timothy Murphy. As the population of the state increased, the need for further civil divisions resulted in the creation of Delaware County. Land grants and a manorial system of titles led to serious “rent difficulties” among tenants. Other features of this work include obituaries of well-known persons, lists of state legislators and judges, and an appendix which gives the history of local newspapers and organizations

About Our CDs

      Many of our CDs are composed of collections of multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject areas.  Many contain 5, 10 or more separate publications.  Each CD is truly a reference BONANZA to the home historian with thousands of pages of research information.  The age of most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher.  Naturally their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire  hence often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately this also makes them unavailable for public view. Our CDs are produced by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations. If you could find a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars - individually worth many times the cost of  a CD.
