Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylvania Vol. 1-3
(John W. Jordan, 1915, 1996 pages)
The Foreword of this publication makes known its purpose and contents: "The present work, "Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylvania," presents in the aggregate an amount and variety of genealogical and personal information and portraiture unequalled by any kindred publication. No similar work concerning Western Pennsylvania has ever before been presented, and it contains a vast amount of ancestral history never before printed. The object, clearly defined and well digested, is to present in concise form the history of Western Pennsylvania Families of the Colonial Days. There are numerous volunimus histories of the State, making it unnecessary in this work to even outline its annals. What has been published, however, relates principally to civic life. The amplification necessary to complete the picture, old and nowaday, is what is supplied by these Genealogical and Personal Memoirs. In other words, while others have written of "the times," the province of this work is as a chronicle of the people who have made this magnificent region what it is." This is an extensive biographical publication which covers western Pennsylvania, including the cities of Pittsburgh and Allegheny City, and the counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Fayette, Indiana, Mercer, Somerset, Venango, Washington, Westmoreland. Included with the biographical information are hundreds of portraits of this areas leading men and women.

History of Butler County Pennsylvania (C. Hale Sipe, 1927, 1330 pages)
From the Preface: "In this history, the perspective has been so arranged as to cause the early events of the region embraced within the bounds of Butler County, to stand out prominently. Most of us know too little about the stirring events and the strong men and women of the days when the foundations of America's present greatness were laid." Originally published in 2 volumes, this is an excellent addition to the earlier historical and biographical volumes written for Butler County, PA. It contains a history of the county, its early beginnings, pioneer settlers, the organization and development of the county, and the war involvement of its citizens. It also contains a historical account of its townships and boroughs, and the growth of its various organizations and industries. The Second half of the publication is biographical in nature and highlights hundreds of the county's prominent and influential citizens.
