INDEX TO THE WARRANT/PATENT MAPS OF FAYETTE, GREENE & WASHINGTON COUNTIES. 2003 compiled by C.G. Frost. The basic procedures used to transfer PA land to private ownership was established during the proprietorship of William Penn. First title to land in Pennsylvania was and is acquired through a five-step process including warrant and patent. The warrant is a written order to survey, and usually restates the amount and location requested in the application, and the patent is the final deed from the proprietor to the purchaser. This index was compiled using Volume 3 of The Horn Papers (now out-of-print). Each county is indexed separately in three parts by grid locations, map number and warrantee to patentee. Copies of the original Warrant/Patent maps for each township indexed in this work can be ordered from the PA Historical Museum Commission in Harrisburg. 131 pages, 8 1/2 x 11 Softbound.

THE BLOODY 85th: THE LETTERS OF MILTON McJUNKIN, A WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR. 2000 compiled and edited by Ronn Palm, Dr. Richard Sauers, and Patrick A. Schroeder. The letters transcribed in this book were penned by Milton E. McJunkin, a 24-year-old farmer who lived near the village of Bentleyville in west Pike Run Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. He joined the Union army on October 15, 1861. These letters provide a different view of the war than that of the average Army of the Potomac soldier--the 85th PA Volunteer Infantry served in both the Army of the Potomac and the Army of the James. This distinguished regiment fought from Williamsburg, PA, to Suffolk, VA, to Goldsboro, NC, to Charleston, SC, and Morris Island. "This work is an apt tribute to a noble spirit and fine soldier as well as commemorating the reputation of a gallant and hard fighting regiment from western Pennsylvania." Included are 63 photos and military biographical sketches of McJunkin's comrades, with a post-war roster. Indexed. ISBN-1-889246-13-1 216 pages, 6 x 9 Hardbound
