LINDLEY - pgs 451 & 452

"Township was formed from Erwin, May 12, 1837, and was named in honor of Col. Eleazer Lindsley, the original proprietor. It lies upon the southern border of the county, east of the centre, and was "Township No. 1, of the Second Range." It is bounded north by Erwin, east by Caton, south by Pennsylvania state line, and west by the town of Tuscarora. The east and west parts are hilly uplands, divided by the valley of the Tioga river, which is bounded by steep hillsides from four to six hundred feet high. The course of the Tioga is from south to north through the town, a little east of the centre. The soil upon the hills is a heavy, shaly loam, and in the valley, which is about a mile in width, a rich alluvium.

The population of the town, according to the census enumeration of 1890, was 1,527."
