1859 Erie County Directory

Contributed by Shanon Crowther

Shanon and Melanie Crowther have a long established web site at that focuses on genealogy, among other items of interest to them. Shanon emailed several months ago that they had come into possession of an 1859 Erie County Directory and Handbook and that they were in the process of scanning the page images. This has now been done and posted. Shanon invites you to take a look at the online images at:

Below is a listing from this directory of the locations that may be accessed. They have been soliciting volunteers to provide surname indexes. As of this date, the locations with "Surnames" after the location name have compiled indexes. Anyone is invited to create a text file surname index. It would be nice if some of these indexes could be provided to this web site so that the surnames might be included in our PICO Search.

The referenced web site also contains the following information: "Here is a list of our surnames we are researching in Erie County: Sweet - Little - Hirt - Blakeslee - White - Shunk - Krumpe - Hibeck - Hillman. Check our databases and photo gallery for more information on these families."

Any questions or comments should be sent directly to Shanon Crowther.
