More Details About This Book

Somerset County was created in 1795 from the neighboring county of Bedford. It is located in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania and has a rich history. The two books described on these pages offer insight into what life was like there in the late 1700s and the 1890s.

"Recollections ..." is based on the diary and personal papers of Herman (Harmon) Husband, one of the first permanent settlers in the county. "Glimpses ..." captures snapshots in time based on newspapers printed in the 1890s. Both contain surname indexes, making them valuable resources for genealogists.
