Text At the March sessions, 1790, as it appears by the Quarter Session Docket of Luzerne county, "It is ordered by the justices, that this county be divided into eleven townships, viz. 'Tioga,' 'Wyalusing,' 'Tankannock,' 'Lakawanuk,'" etc. Lakawanuk was "bounded on the north by Tunkhannock Township, on the east by the county line, on the west by the river Susquehanna, and southerly by the old boundary line of Wilkes Barre, and the continuation thereof east to the county line."
