  • Notes 
    • Most people familiar with Towanda history know that the borough's oldest house is located at 1 York Avenue, at the bend with Main Street. An example of Federal architecture, it was built in 1812 and was originally built as a combination tavern and home by Col. Harry Spalding. It was a stagecoach stop when York Avenue was known as Post Road and once even contained a ballroom for dancing during one phase of its 192 years of service. As is the case with most of these homes, it still serves as a home and retains its historic look.
    • Ebenezer P Clark did teaming work for Col Harry S Clark. Hence the naming of 2 children in his honor (Harry Spalding Clark, and Lemira Satterlee Clark)
    • William Myer, born February 8, 1780, was the eldest son of Jacob Myer. In 1800 he went to Wysox, purchased a mill site and secured the right to control the flow of water from Lake Wysauking. He put up a hewed log house into which his father and family moved the next year. Working together, they built a grist-mill, which was supplied by water power from Wysox creek and Lake Wysauking. They soon after built a saw-mill that was run entirely by water from Wysox creek. He early took an active part in public affairs, being commissioned a justice of the peace, 1807. Upon the formation of Bradford county, he was elected one of the first county commissioners, 1812, and again elected to the same office, 1819. He was chosen a member of the Pennsylvania assembly in 1822 and also served his townsmen in many civil capacities. He married Joanna, daughter of Nathaniel Hickok, died May 15, 1842. She was born, 1783, died April 15, 1825. Their children were: Harriet, Elizabeth, Sarah, Emeline Esther, Mary Ellen, Susan, Elijah Reed and Helen Maria. Mr. Myer married for his second wife, Mrs. Lemira (Satterlee) Spalding, widow of Col. Harry Spalding. ** From Heverley Pioneer and Patriot Families of Bradford County, Page 314
    • Samuel Clark came to Ulster soon after his brother, Capt. Benjamin Clark. In the census of 1790 his family is given as consisting of five males and three females. Mr. Clark met a tragic death on Christmas, 1808. He had a contract for building a section of the State Road, crossing the county from east to west, and while engaged on the Gregg place in clearing away brush, was shot in mistake for a deer by a neighbor. But little is known of his family. One son, Ebenezer P. Clark, was for a number of years a resident of Towanda and did teaming for Col. Harry Spalding. Harry S. Clark, son of Ebenezer P., born 1823, is still a resident of Towanda. .... FROM Pioneer & Patriot Families of Bradford County PA 1770-1800
