Beaver Argus: by Mark Welchley

A careful reading of every news item, advertisement or public notice in the microfilms of the oldest surviving newspapers of Beaver County, Pennsylvania, Argus (known as the Western Argus until 1843). Includes items containing genealogical information of a local nature from Western Pennsylvania and parts of Ohio and Virginia. Marriage notices were omitted so as not to duplicate material from his earlier book, Beaver County, Pa. Marriages, 1830-73. The only exceptions to this were a number of marriage notices, mostly from the 1840’s, that were inadvertently omitted from the earlier book.An index provided for names that are not alphabetized in the text.
