History of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania
Col. Thomas W. Lloyd, 1929, 1247 pages

From the Preface:
"To write a history of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, is no easy task. So many things enter into a discussion of the subject, many of them of minor importance except as they are related to others of greater moment, that to fully cover the entire ground is somewhat difficult.
In the present history that of the late John M. Meginness has been freely drawn upon and no attempt has been made to supersede his great work. That veritable mine of information will remain for all time the source of original research for everything relating to the early history of Lycoming County. It has only been the aim of the writer to supplement the labors of Meginness and bring them down to date as well as amplify some of the subjects which he treated only briefly. One of the most important of these is the giant lumber industry which made the city of Williamsport famous and its present prosperity a possiblility. Other chapters have been added covering subjects of special historical interest which seemed to warrant more extended treatment.
There has been no attempt at fine writing, but only an earnest effort to tell in plain, simple language the story of the wonderful progress and development of Lycoming County and the city of Williamsport."

This publication was originally written in two volumes: Volume 1 covers the historical aspects of the region, the settlement and civil development of the county, as well as a brief historical sketch of each township and major borough. Volume 2 contains the biographies of hundreds of prominent and leading individuals of the county. Many of these are also represented by portraits, although some are not as clear as others.
