Ephraim Killam's 1887 History of the Settlement on the Wallenpaupack

This history of the Wallenpaupack was written in 1887, just before the author's death.  The first part contains a history very similar to other contemporary histories of the Wallenpaupack settlement.  The second part is a unique compendium of family trees of the original settlers.  The volume is completely indexed by name.  The family names include:
