My interest in this subject is somewhat tangental. I'm the overseer of a PATC cabin and property in Warren Township, PA. PATC members maintain the Tuscarora Trail which runs along the top of the mountain near the property, and the club wanted a hiker shelter in the area, hence the property. When researching possible names for the proposed shelter (now completed) I went to the 1868 Pomeroy & Beers map of Warren Twp. and found that two families of "Reese" lived on the property. The map clearly shows one name as J. Reese, and the other could be H. Reese, although the "H" is smudged with stream and hill markings and so is unclear.
I have much more info, but am out of space :(
"collier" instead of "cobbler" check census records.
