Cambria County Pioneers (James M. Swank, 1910, 136 pages)
Regarding this publication, the Preface notes:
"It is a compilation entirely, with two exceptions, of twenty biographical and other sketches relating
to Cambria county that were written years ago, some of them many years ago. It has fallen to my lot to prepare from time to time and publish biographical sketches of some of the prominent men of Cambria county in the old days, a few of whom were then living but most of whom had passed to the other side, and these sketches, now reproduced, occupy the larger part of the following pages; the remainder of the volume is devoted to subjects of historical interest relating to pioneer days in Cambria county which I have had occasion to consider in years gone by."

Town, Township & Regional Histories

The Valley of the Conemaugh (Thomas J. Chapman, 1865, 201 pages)
From the Preface:
"The scope of this little work is to give an historical and descriptive account of the Valley of the Conemaugh, which embraces the county of Cambria, and a portion of the counties of Somerset, Indiana and Westmoreland.
...so many older men still live, natives of this valley, and better acquainted with its early history... meanwhile, the time is passing away, and the scanty materials out of which to form a local history of the Conemaugh valley are yearly growing less and less. The author has gathered up such of the incidents in the early history of this section of the country as have been thought worthy of preservation, and he takes pleasure in thus submitting the results of his labors to the judgment of his readers."
