Data and stories about persons or families from Little Washington, Washington County, Pennsylvania.

This site focuses on how folks lived their lives, the occupations they had, where they attended church, and their families.  If you want to include your family who lived in Little Washington, Washington County, Pennsylvania at anytime throughout history to recent times, please submit biographical information or your and family stories.

Some of the first settlers in the area came as early as 1744, with the majority arriving after the 1760s.  The 1700s is less documented, of course, than the 1800s, so I welcome any submissions you might have for the 1700 time-period.  The very earliest newspaper that is available on microfilm is also closer to the 1800s for this area.  I will do my best to provide 1700s information.
