Text 42. Mill Creek. At March sessions, 1878, a petition was presented praying for a division of Muncy Township. Viewers reported favorably, and an election was ordered December 10, 1878. The result of the vote was 122 for division and 104 against, whereupon Judge Cummin ordered the new township erected February 25, 1879. The heads of Mill Creek rise in and drain most of its territory — hence the name. It is the thirty-sixth in size and has an area of about 8,000 acres.
