Letters From Ceres PA

08 Feb

Today, I wanted to highlight an item of interest being auctioned on eBay.com most who follow my MixedGenes.

The seller has 3 handwritten letters addressed to John King (of King’s Run fame in Ceres Township, McKean County, Pennsylvania). As an historian I would LOVE to read these!

The seller (who has NOT paid me anything to highlight this, nor do I know him/her) has researched a bit into the 1840’s in the Ceres area and includes that info into the auction’s description.

As already stated all three of the letters are addressed to John King: they were written by John Keating, George Stewardson, and one from Robert Rove. The letters are dates 1842, 1845, and 1848. They address land concerns and financial transactions.

The price is already above what I can bid on, but for others studying the McKean and Potter County histories, these might be something you would find interesting. I have just one request: If you do bid on them, and win, please let me read a copy or a scan. THANKS!KING 01
