Type Summary
Text PLUM.--'Beginning at the mouth of Brush creek, thence by a straight line to the mouth of Plum creek, on the Allegheny river, thence up the said river to the county line, thence by the said line to the place of beginning.' The above is extracted from the minutes of the court of quarter sessions at its first session in 1788, and the township thus described was one of the original subdivisions of the county. In June, 1789, the boundary between Pitt and Plum was established as follows: 'Beginning at the mouth of Thompson's run, thence up the said run to the Lick fork, thence up said fork to the head thereof, thence by a direct line to the mouth of Plum creek.'\"
