Cameron, Clearfield and Elk County wills available to date. Clinton and Lycoming County info to come.


Wills were not always filed in the county where the person lived; some people filed their wills at the closest county seat. Also, township and county lines changed often between 1780 and 1860 (and the court house records were not passed on when the county lines changed). Gibson Township of present-day Cameron County changed township lines several times and was part of at least 5 different counties since 1780.

As always, please check for alternate spellings of your surname.
