Note: The following transcription is partial, but as comprehensive as is possible at this time. Quicks Bend is located in Wilmot Township, Bradford County, PA. Although never actually a formal town, "Quicks Bend" is the name given to a spot near a bend in the Susquehanna River. We are grateful to Alice for this valuable part of the history of Bradford County where so many Sullivan County folks were born, lived their lives and came to rest. To use her own words, Alice is a "family historian". Her youngest daughter, Janet Matson, recently linked herself to the well-known Sullivan county "Messersmith" tree, via marriage to Frank Messersmith, son of Marian and the late Earl Messersmith. That practically makes Alice a bona fide local!!
