1. From History of Meadville Pennsylvania. (General David Mead, leader of the men and founder of Meadville, relates the events and trials of the early years of the settlement as he told it years later in a Circuit Court of the United States.) During the years 1792, 1793, 1794, and the greater part of the year 1795, I did consider it imprudent, for a single Family with Women and Children to attempt to make a Settlement and Residence, and none did make the attempt West of French Creek during that Period, nor to any other place to remain permanently until the Fall of 1795.
