A Directory of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Blacksmiths

A Directory of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Blacksmiths
MWTCA


This book is a compilation of names of blacksmiths who were working in Lancaster county in the 18th and 19th Centuries. No biographical information is provided about these blacksmiths, just their location and the date of the record in which they were located. The primary source for this data was tax records. It is remarkable how many names appear in the book, and this is not even comprehensive, since some townships have lost their tax records. There is also a list of know marks used by Lancaster County blacksmiths, but this list is far less extensive. This book represents a very good first step into a field of academic study that is ripe for further research.
