Type Summary
Text QUEMAHONING, now part of Somerset county, was organized from Brother's Valley township during the April sessions of court in 1775. Originally its boundary lines ran as follows: 'Beginning where the Great road, which is laid out through the Glades, crosses the Allegheny mountain near Burd's gap, and along the said road to where it crosses the Laurel Hill at Matthias Ditch's gap, then along the Laurel Hill by the line of Westmoreland county, to the head of Little Conemaugh, and from thence along the dividing ridge between the waters of the Susquehannah and Little Conemaugh to the Allegheny mountain, and by the same mountain to the place of beginning.'
