PATRIOT PUBLISHING COMPANY, 320 Market st., Harrisburg, Pa.


The Publication Committee of the Historical Society of Dauphin County, in pursuance of one of the objects of its organization, to preserve the records of the early settlements of the county, take pleasure in presenting to its members the second number of its contributions to the historical literature of this locality—the proceedings and addresses on the occasion of the Centenary of Independence, July 4, 1876, being the initial publication. The present pamphlet comprises

1. Historical Sketch Of Old Hanover Church. By Rev. Thomas H. Robinson, D. D.

2. Notes Relating To The Church At Conewago, And The New-Side Grave-yard In Lower Paxtang Township. By A. Boyd Hamilton.

The history of Old Hanover Church will prove of great value, especially for its genealogical data, meagre though that may be, and will be highly appreciated not alone by the members of the Society, but by the descendants of the many good and true whose dust lies within the stone-walled enclosure on Bow creek, a tributary of the Swatara, three miles from Manada Gap. The record given in these pages comprises all information accessible worthy of preservation. The Notes relating to a Congregation of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians of which little has been known, will also be an acceptable contribution. In the hope that these records herewith presented will awaken more anxious inquiries and tend to the preservation of every letter, document and newspaper relating to the biography or early history of our county of Dauphin, the Committee submit with pleasure the following pages.
