A town in Armstrong County in western Pennsylvania located on the Allegheny River 37 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. In Iroquois dialects the word, kittanning, means "on the great stream."

(YTB-787: dp. 325 (It.) ; 1. 109'; b. 28'; dr. 13'; s. 12 k.; cpl. 12; cl. Pontiac)

Kittanning (YTB-787) was laid down 22 December 1965 by Marinette Maine Corp., Marinette, Wis.; and launched 29 March 1966.

The new large harbor tug was placed in service in the Pacific Fleet 27 October 1966; and in 1967 operates out of Yokosuka, Japan, assisting ships of the American and Allied navies in the Far East. Her labors, like those of countless other service ships, are a major source of American naval strength in the Far East helping to prevent that troubled region from being engulfed by war or communism.

When Freddie Cunningham was born in Manorville, PA in 1893, he was the youngest of 5 children born to Westley and Elizabeth A. (Shaul) Cunningham. His Father was employed as a painter and specialized in painting very high edifices like bridges and coal tipples, etc. In 1903 at the tender age of 10, he lost his mother. His older sister Armintha was married, as were his two brothers Wesley and Chester. His brother Chester had joined his father in the painting business and when his sister Eva married the following May, Westley out of necessity began to take the young Freddie on the job.

The young dare devil became quite adept at climbing the high towers and was fearless when it came to heights. At age 13 he had become renowned as a high wire artist, working with Rutherford Greater Shows. His father accompanied him on his tours. They continued to travel while doing painting work in the off season.

In May of 1917 at age 24, Freddie joined the service. He became a Corporal in the 14th U. S. Cavalry and was Honorable Discharged on March 17, 1919. While he was stationed in Texas in October of 1917, his Father and brother Chester fell while painting a coal tipple at Mohawk Mine in East Franklin Township. His Father was killed and his brother seriously injured. Freddie continued to work the high wire although little is known of when or where. In 1923, he traveled to Havana, Cuba to perform and there met Providenzia Lopez. They married in December of 1923 and traveled between San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the United States, residing in many areas. He had added trapeze artistry to his high wire act and was employed by Dixie Carnival Company.

On November 24, 1934, while traveling “over-the-jump”, a term used by carnival workers when traveling between engagements, he fell from the back of a truck as it passed through Augusta, Georgia and was killed. He is buried in West View Cemetery, Augusta, Georgia. His wife survived him passing away in 1976.

Kittanning was the site of a major battle during the French and Indian War and later settled. The borough was incorporated in 1803 and eventually became the seat of Armstrong County. By the early 20th century, the area around Kittanning had become an important industrial center, with several mines, mills and factories. Among these facilities was a clothing factory owned by Sidney Kaufman, who was a member of Rodef Shalom Congregation in Pittsburgh.

Various sources provide conflicting dates for the beginning of a Jewish community in Kittanning. According a January 1940 survey conducted by the Works Progress Administration Church Archives, a group of Jewish families first began meeting in 1896, for the purposes of starting a religious school. In his book The Jewish Experience in Western Pennsylvania, A History: 1755-1945, Jacob Feldman places the beginnings of the community in 1900, when several Jewish immigrants from Lithuania began walking to religious services at the home of Louis Pollock in Manorville, which was equidistant from the bigger towns of Kittanning and Ford City. A community history published in 1954 put the date of these services at 1905. According to a different community history, 15 women founded the Mother’s Club of Kittanning in January 1912 and ran a religious school at the International Order of the Odd Fellows Hall at 315 Jacobs Street and later at the Kittanning Academy Building at 370 N. Jefferson Street until approximately 1918, when the school joined the Southwestern District of Pennsylvania Jewish Religious Schools program run by the National Council of Jewish Women.

Some of the earliest Jewish families in the Kittanning community were the Appels, the Adelsons, the Caplans, the Gruskins, the Pollocks, the Rambachs, the Silverblatts and a shochet (ritual slaughterer) from Ford City named Harry Friedman. No later than 1918, these families chartered Kneseth Israel Congregation and purchased an existing residence that they converted into a synagogue. Israel Rambach was the first president of the group and Morris Adelson was the first vice president. The congregation paid off the mortgage for the building in 1941. A decade after, a newly formed building committee began discussing plans to build a new synagogue. The congregation eventually sold its original synagogue and hired architect Alexander Sharove to design a new synagogue . The congregation broke ground of the building in 1953 and dedicated a new synagogue at 599 N. Water Street in 1954.

An important feature of the new synagogue was two series of stained glass windows. One series of 13 windows depicted Jewish history from creation to the founding of the State of Israel. A second series of eight windows depicted the major Jewish holidays.

The American Jewish Yearbook listed a population of 145 for Kittanning in its 1918-1919 edition. The figure might have included Ford City, given that the yearbook listed a population of 109 for Kittanning and 68 for Ford City in the 1928-1929 edition. In the 1940-1941 yearbook, the population of Kittanning increased to 167 and the population of Ford City decreased to 35. Kittanning and Ford City had a combined Jewish population of 200 in the 1951 yearbook, and Kittanning had a Jewish population 175 in the 1984 yearbook. According to congregational notes, Kneseth Israel had approximately 200 members at the time of a mortgage burning ceremony for the new synagogue in 1960 but only 20 members when the congregation sold its synagogue to a local church in 1987.

I have had a difficult time in preparing the following article whether is was due to lack of ‘time’, concentrating on the actual delivery and writing of the content, or simply old fashion laziness, I decided I needed to complete it before I started articles of other matters. In my recent quest of becoming a clock collector, and researching the history of the nearly two dozen clocks that have come home with me, I reminded myself that somewhere in my readings and research on other subjects, there was once a clock maker in Kittanning. It didn’t take any real amount of time to locate John Clugston, the individual who built the clocks. This little afternoon curiosity, quickly turned into a quest to learn more about this seemingly obscure piece of Kittanning history.

This frame building is believed to be John Clugston’s clock store.

On June 21, 1828 in an ad taken out of the Columbian, a newspaper published in Kittanning, that he had “commenced the manufacture of eight-day and thirty-hour brass clocks, in the frame building next door to Thomas Blair’s office. ” This was located on lot No. 122, on the north side of Market, a little above Jefferson street, and opposite the old Register’s office. It was quickly learned that Clugston never built and of his thirty-hour clocks, and only completed and sold five of the eight-day clocks.

These five clocks that were made cost in around the $40 mark and were made of the finest materials available at that time. One of the clocks was purchased by John Mechling, which later was purchased by J. E. Brown. Another clock was sold to James McCullough Sr., one by Mr. James Montieth, another to James Matthews and finally one to David Reynolds, owner of the Kittanning Inn. Mr. Clugston carefully constructed, polished and fitted each intricate part into creating these clocks. They also included attachments which indicated the day of the month and the current moon phase.

The clock owned by James Montieth, who was a charter member of the First Presbyterian Church, trustee of the Kittanning Academy in 1821 and operated a store in the 1820’s on Market, would become the property of his daughter, Mrs. Nancy Gilpin, whose husband, Dr. John Gilpin, moved the clock to Elkton in Cecil County, Maryland after his wife’s death. This clock originally stood in the mansion on Jacob’s Hill, built by Dr. Gilpin. After Dr. Gilpin passed away the clock was owned by his second wife, Olive Gilpin. Upon her death the clock was brought back to Kittanning by Mary Elizabeth Adele Gilpin McCain, the great granddaughter of the original owner, James Montieth. Jim McClister, and attorney from Kittanning once found McCain standing on a chair to wind the clock. He happily volunteered to the task of winding the clock every Sunday over the next several years. Mr. McClister remarked that the clock was quite tall and was very handsome with beautiful veneer, and that it kept great time.

The clock that was purchased by David Reynolds, was perhaps the best known of all five built by Clugston. This clock was placed in the Kittanning Inn, and it was that clock that became the official time for all business conducted at the Armstrong County Courthouse. Each day the county crier would transverse the Market and Jefferson Street intersection from the courthouse to the Kittanning Inn and find the ‘official’ time before returning for the start of each days court. This clock eventually fell into disrepair and wasn’t kept running. The clock remained in the Reynolds family until the great-grandson of David Reynolds sold it to Dr. Douglas and Mrs. Caroline Shaffer. Dr. Shaffer, a horologist, was at one time President of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. In 1984, the Shaffer’s donated the Clugston clock to the American Clock and Watch Museum in Bristol, Connecticut. This clock which is made from walnut and tiger maple rises at 8’ 11″ tall, and stands as a testament to the craftsmanship of John Clugston.

The Clugston clock that was purchased by David Reynolds stood for many years in his Kittanning Inn and later in the Reynolds Hotel. The dial on the Clugston clock owned by David Reynolds is thought to be made by Philadelphian, William Jones.

Mr. Clugston who was believed to be born in Kittanning about 1802 only remained in Kittanning until sometime just before 1840,when he moved his family to Portsmouth, OH. There, he went from being a tall case clock maker to a watch maker. His wife, Caroline, passed away in 1858. Mr. Clugston then virtually vanishes and it is only known that he is buried in a cemetery in Calhoun County, Illinois near where his son William lived.

It is my desire to continue research on the remaining four Clugston clocks to see if any have survived the past 180 years. My clock and Kittanning memorabilia collections would be near complete with a Clugston clock in it.

The long walnut case from the Clugston clock now stands with many other great clocks at the American Watch and Clock Museum in Bristol, CT.

1843 History of Armstrong County PA

Armstrong County derived its name, from Gen. John Armstrong, who commanded the expedition against the Indians at Kittanning, in 1756. The county was taken from Lycoming, Westmoreland, and Allegheny, by the act of 12th March, 1800. In 1802, commissioners were appointed to fix the county seat, and upon their report, in 1804, the present site was laid out in 1805, the county was fully organized for judicial purposes. James Sloan, James Matthews, and Alexander Walker, were appointed the first commissioners for locating the county seat and organizing the county but Alexander Walker declined serving. The county has recently been curtailed by the separation of Clarion. Average length, 25 ms. breadth, 25 area, about 625 sq. miles. The population, in 1800, 2,399 in 1810, 6,143 in 1820, 10,324 in 1830, 17,625 in 1840, 28,365, of which about 9,500 should be deducted, being now in Clarion co. A great portion of the population is of German descent, having emigrated from Northampton and Lehigh counties.

The most important feature in the county is that noble river, the Allegheny, which traverses its entire length. The general features of the Allegheny are peculiar, and in some respects remarkable, particularly as regards its connection with great channels of internal communication in other sections of the country. By means of French creek, and Le Boeuf lake, and Conewango creek, and Chautauqua lake, on the northwest, it almost touches Lake Erie on the northeast it stretches out its long arms towards the Genesee river, in New York, and the west branch of the Susquehanna on the east, through its branches, the Kiskiminetas and Conemaugh, it is chained by an iron tie over the Allegheny mountains to the sources of the Juniata while on the south it pours its waters into the Ohio. On all these routes great public improvements have been projected, and on several completed. For the greater part of its course this river flows, not through a broad valley, like most others, but through a great ravine, from 100 to 400 feet below the common level of the adjacent country. From about the middle of Armstrong county, downwards, it is true, there are many fine bodies of alluvial land, (on one of which Kittanning is located,) but from that upwards precipitous hills, for the most part, jut close to the water's edge on both sides of the river. The scenery is in some places wild and rugged, but more generally picturesque and beautiful. The hills, though steep, are clothed with a dense forest, presenting the appearance of a vast verdant wall, washed at its base, on either hand, by the limped water of the river, alternately purling over ripples, or sleeping in deep intervening pools. This regular succession of alternate pebbly ripples and deep pools is another peculiarity of this river there are no rocks, strictly so called, in the channel. This circumstance renders the navigation in its natural state very safe at full water and on this account, also, no river is better adapted for improvement by artificial means. Mineral wealth is scattered along its banks in great profusion. Bituminous coal in exhaustless quantities is found as far up as Franklin iron ore is also abundant, and limestone beds frequently alternate with the coal measures. Salt is obtained by boring from 400 to 700 feet.

In addition to the Allegheny, the Kiskirninetas forms the southwestern boundary of the co., with the main line of the Pennsylvania canal along its margin. The other streams are Red Bank, the northern boundary, formerly called Sandy Lick cr., Mahoning, formerly called by the Indians Mohulbucteetam, Pine cr., Crooked cr., and a few smaller streams, all tributary to the Allegheny. Red Bank and Mahoning drain a vast extent of pine lands, and annually bear upon their waters innumerable rafts of lumber. Water power is most abundant.

The soil of the county, though various, averages well: much of it is very good. The whole face of the country, where unimproved, is covered with a very heavy growth of timber of every description known to this section of the Union. As an article of trade, the white pine, which abounds chiefly in the northeastern portion of the county, stands foremost.

Salt-wells are numerous, both along the Allegheny and the Kiskiminetas: there have been in operation between 25 and 30 in the whole county but many have ceased operations with the change in the times. To obtain a supply of salt water, the earth is perforated to the depth of from 400 to 700 feet. In this operation the auger is driven by steam, horse, or hand power, at a price per foot varying with the depth, from 92 to $3. The fuel used for evaporation is generally coal and in many cases it may be thrown from the mouth of the mine into the furnace.

There are several iron furnaces in the county, of which the most prominent are the Bear Creek furnace on Bear creek, and the Great Western on the Allegheny, at the mouth of Sugar creek, both in the northwest corner of the county the Allegheny furnace, near Kittanning, on the west side of the river and one on the Kiskiminetas.

The Great Western Iron Works is one of the most extensive establishments in Pennsylvania. It was commenced some four or five years since, under the management of Philander Raymond, Esq., in connection with several wealthy gentlemen of New York City. The lands of the company, which before selection were carefully explored by Mr. Raymond, comprise every material and facility for prosecuting the iron business. There are rich deposits of ore, bituminous coal of the finest quality, limestone, forests of timber, water power, and sufficient land for agricultural purposes. The whole process of making the iron is carried on with bituminous coal and coke, in the manner practiced in Wales and although the article resulting from this process possesses some peculiar qualities in working with which our western blacksmiths are not yet familiarized, yet it is growing in favor with them as they learn how to manage it. The company has in operation one or more furnaces, a rolling-mill, nail factory, foundry, store, &c. and a beautiful busy little village has sprung up around the works, as if by the effect of magic. A large quantity of railroad iron has been made by this establishment.

Kittanning, the seat of justice, is situated upon a broad flat of alluvial soil, on the left bank* of the Allegheny river, near the centre of the county, It was formerly the site of an old Indian town of the same name and a great trail called the Kittanning path went over the mountains to Black Log valley, Standing-stone, (now Huntingdon,) &c. &c, by which the Indians communicated with the Susquehanna country. There was also another Indian town at the mouth of Mohulbucteetam, or Mahoning creek. Kittanning was a prominent point in the northwestern boundary of the last great purchase made by the Proprietary government, in 1768, at Fort Stanwix. The line stretched across from Kittanning to the southwestern source, or "the canoe place," of the West Branch of Susquehanna, thence by that branch to the mouth of Pine creek, &c. The country north and west of the Ohio and Allegheny rivers was purchased by the commonwealth, at Fort Stanwix, in 1784.

The present town was laid out in 1804, and incorporated as a borough in 1821. Four streets run parallel with the river, crossed at right angles by eight others. Population in 1840, 702. It contains the usual county buildings, an academy, a very flourishing female seminary, and Methodist, Presbyterian, and Episcopal churches. The Lutherans and Associate Presbyterians have no edifice of their own, although they worship regularly in the town. Kittanning is said to be very healthy, and the water pure and wholesome.

The place is well situated for manufacturing purposes. The hills which environ the town are rich in coal-one bed of which is 4 1-2 feet thick-and some of them in iron ore: a fine productive country surrounds it. The Allegheny affords ready access to market at all times by keelboats, and often by steam. A turnpike road leads 16 miles west, to Butler, and another 24 miles southeast, to Indiana. The river is crossed here by a ferry-boat driven by the force of the current. It is said to have been invented by Mr. Cunningham, the ferryman of the opposite shore, in 1834 though (as the writer thinks) the plan has long been known to French military engineers, under the name of Pont Volant, or flying bridge. About 400 yards above the landing on the west side, a strong wire is attached to a tree on the bank of the river the other end is attached to the boat by means of stay-ropes, with which it can be brought to any desired angle with the current. By bringing that end of the boat intended to go foremost a little up the stream, it immediately sets off like a thing of life, impelled solely by the oblique action of the water against its side. The trip is performed in about five minutes. The wire is kept out of the water by means of several small boats of peculiar construction, which cross simultaneously with the large boat, like so many goslings swimming with their mother.

* In the topographical descriptions in this work, the terms right and left bank of a river, in common use among civil and military engineers, arc used in preference to north, touth, runt, or wfsl bank. It is understood when these terms are used, that a person is going down the river. This method defines the petition of a town far more correctly than the other-for instance, Wheeling, Va., is on the east side of the Ohio so is Economy, Pa. Yet they are not on the Mm side Wheeling being on the left bank, and Economy on the right bank, to a person going down the river.


The following account of the destruction of the old Indian town of Kittanning, is from the Pennsylvania Gazette of Sept- 23, 1756. Dr. Maese, in a note in the N. Y. Hist. Soc. Coll., endorses the accuracy of this statement, which he had compared with the original letter of Col. Armstrong to the governor of Pennsylvania. The letter alluded to is among the archives of the state at Harrisburg, and is said to be very long and minute in detailing the occurrences of the expedition.

It is proper to observe that the current tradition among the aged men of the town now is, that no one but old Jacobs was burned in the house that all the other Indians had gone off. Yet it would seem that Col. Armstrong's official report ought to be true. The site of this house was near where Dr. John Gilpin's now stands and in excavating his cellar, the bones of old Jacobs were dug up.

Armstrong's men had quite a skirmish with the Indians out at Blanket hill, 5 miles east of Kittanning, the place at which the detachment of 14 remained. A silver medal was presented to Col. Armstrong by the city of Philadelphia, for his conduct in this expedition-a representation of which is given in the memoirs of the Penn. Hist. Society, vol. 2.

After the destruction of the Indian town, the location remained unimproved by white people, until near the close of the last century. The land remained in possession of the Armstrong family and when the establishment of the county was proposed, Dr. Armstrong of Carlisle, a son of the general, made a donation of the site of the town to the county, on condition of receiving one half the proceeds of the sales of lots.

Mr. Robert Brown, still residing near town, and David Reynolds, were among the first who erected dwellings in the place. Mr. Brown came here first in 1798, with several hunters. He first settled on the opposite bank of the river. At that time there were very few settlers in the region. Jeremiah Loughery, an old frontier-man, who had been in Armstrong's expedition, lingered around the place for many years. He had no family, and wandered from house to house, staying all night with people, and repaying their hospitality with anecdotes of his adventures. The early settlers of that day found it necessary to be always prepared for Indian warfare, and for hunting the beasts of the forest: indeed, their character generally throughout the surrounding region, was a mixture of the frontier-man, the hunter, and the agriculturist. Not long after coming here, Mr. Brown remembers attending a military review at which there was neither a coat nor a shoe : all wore hunting shirts, and went barefoot, or wore moccasins.

In the winter of 1837-8, a remarkable gorge occurred in the Allegheny river opposite Kittanning. The ice first gorged about H miles above town, and caused considerable alarm. It broke, however, and passed the town freely,-but again gorged below. The water thus checked, instantly fell back upon the town, and deluged the whole flat quite to the base of the hills. Many fears were expressed that the whole town would be swept away. The ferry-boat passed quite up to the high grounds,-and all the inhabitants had escaped to the hills. Providentially the gorge broke after about 20 or 30 minutes, and the frightened inhabitants returned with lightened hearts to their homes.

The following biographical sketch is abridged from an article in the Kittanning Gazette of Sept. 1833 :

Died, at his residence in this borough, on the 4th inst., in the 89th year of his age, the Venerable Robert Orr, one of the associate judges of this county. Judge Orr was born in the county of Derry, Ireland, and emigrated to the United States in the year 1766, and from that time until the year 1773, resided east of the mountains, in which year he married a young lady by the name of Culbertson, of respectable family, in the (then) county of Cumberland, (now Mifflin.) In the same year, he settled with his wife at Hannahstown, in Westmoreland co. Immediately on the declaration of Independence, Mr. Orr took a very active part in favor of his adopted country, and as the frontier was at that time unprotected from the excursions, depredations, and cruelties of the savages by any regular force, he was always found foremost in volunteering his services, and in encouraging others to do so.

In the summer of 1781, Gen. Clarke, of Virginia, having determined to make an excursion against the hostile Indians, down the Ohio river, requested Archibald Laughrey to raise in Westmoreland co. 100 volunteers, and on communicating this request to Mr. Orr, he immediately raised a company of volunteers, principally at his own expense, furnishing to those who were unable to do so, out of his own funds, all the necessaries for the intended expedition.

Early in the engagement Capt. Orr received a shot which broke his left arm. Of the whole detachment not one escaped the wounded who were unable to travel, were all tomahawked on the ground the remaining few, (among whom was Capt. Orr,) were brutally dragged through the wilderness to Lower Sandusky, regardless of their wounds and sufferings, where he was kept for several months and the Indians finding that they could not effect a cure, took him to Detroit, where he remained in the hospital until the ensuing spring, when he was transferred to Montreal, and was exchanged early in the spring of 1783, when the few that remained of Col. Laughrey's regiment returned to their homes. On the 13th July, 1782, (during the imprisonment of the deceased,) Hannahstown was attacked and burnt down by the Indians, and Capt Orr's house and all his property destroyed. On his return to Westmoreland co., in the summer of 1783, Capt. Orr raised another company for the defence of the frontier, to serve two months marched them to the mouth of Bull cr., N. W. of the Allegheny River, built a block-house there, and served out the necessary tour.

In the fall of the same year, 1783, he was elected sheriff of Westmoreland co.

In 1805, when Armstrong co. was organized for judicial purposes, Capt. Orr was appointed one of the associate judges of the co., which situation he continued to nil with honor to himself, and satisfaction to the community, until his death.

Freeport , a flourishing village on the right bank of the Allegheny river and Pa. canal, at the lower corner of the county, was laid out by David Todd about the year 1800. A few settlers had already occupied the ground previous to that time. The mouth of Buffalo creek, and the island, created a fine eddy opposite the village and it was probably anticipated that it would become a popular rendezvous for boatmen and lumbermen during the season of floods. This circumstance raised great expectations in the minds of the proprietors. The lots were eagerly purchased, but before long became of little or no value : many were abandoned or sold for taxes and the village made but slow progress, until the construction of the canal. This work crosses the Allegheny about a mile above, passes through the centre of the village, and then crosses Buffalo creek on an aqueduct a short distance below. The erection of two aqueducts and a lock, and the facilities offered by the canal, gave an impetus to enterprise and the resources of the surrounding country began to be developed. Many salt wells were bored at the base of the river hills south of the village, which are now in active operation. There is a steam saw-mill, a steam grist-mill, and the usual branches of manufacture for the supply of the contiguous agricultural population. The population of Freeport in 1840, was 727.

Warren is a small village in Kiskiminetas township on the river of that name, about 20 miles south of Kittanning. It contains some 20 or 30 dwellings. The Pennsylvania canal passes the village.

Leechburg is a flourishing village on the canal at dam No. 1 on the Kiskiminetas, about 13 miles south of Kittanning. It was started at the time of the construction of the canal, under the auspices of Mr. Leech, a distinguished forwarding merchant. The business of building canal boats has been extensively carried on here. It contains some 30 or 40 dwellings.

Lawrenceburg is a small village in the northwest corner of the county, in Perry township, about 20 miles from Kittanning, containing about 20 houses, stores, &c.


Several of the exploits of Capt. Samuel Brady, the captain of the spies, occurred within the limits of Armstrong county. The extract given below is from the sketches of Brady's adventures published in the Blairsville Record in 1832. These sketches were written by Mr. M'Cabe, of Indiana, and the facts were principally derived from the brother of Capt. Brady, who still lives in Indiana county.

Capt. Samuel Brady was born in Shippensburg, in Cumberland co., in 1758, but soon after removed with his father to the West Branch of Susquehanna, a few miles above Northumberland. Cradled amid the alarms and excitements of a frontier exposed to savage warfare, Brady's military propensities were very early developed. He eagerly sought a post in the revolutionary army was at the siege of Boston a lieutenant at the massacre of the Paoli and in 1779 was ordered to Fort Pitt with the regiment under Gen. Broadhead. A short time previous to this, both his father and brother had fallen by the hands of Indians and from that moment Brady took a solemn oath of vengeance against all Indians. And his future life was devoted to the fulfillment of his vow. While Gen. Broadhead held command at Fort Pitt, (1780-81,) Brady was often selected to command small scouting parties sent into the Indian country north and west of the fort, to watch the movements of the savages a charge which Brady always fulfilled with his characteristic courage and sagacity.

Brady's success as a partisan had acquired for him its usual results-approbation with some, and envy with others. Some of his brother officers censured the commandant for affording him such frequent opportunities for honorable distinction. At length open complaint was made, accompanied by a request, in the nature of a demand, that others should be permitted to share with Brady the perils and honors of the service, abroad from the fort. The general apprised Brady of what had passed, who readily acquiesced in the propriety of the proposed arrangements and an opportunity was not long wanting for testing its efficiency.

The Indian* made an inroad into the Sewickly settlement, committing the most barbarous murders, of men, women, and children stealing such property as was portable, und destroying all else. The alarm was brought to Pittsburg, and a party of soldiers, under the command of the emulous officers, despatched for the protection of the settlements, and chastisement of the foe. From this expedition Brady was of course excluded but the restraint was irksome to his feelings.

The day after the detachment had marched, Brady solicited permission from his commander to take a small party for the purpose of "catching the Indians" but was refused. By dint of importunity, however, he at length wrung from him a reluctant consent, and the command of Jive men to this he added his pet Indian, and made hasty preparation.

Instead of moving towards Sewickly, as the first detachment had done, he crossed the Allegheny at Pittsburg, and proceeded up the river. Conjecturing that the Indians had descended that stream in canoes, till near the settlement, he was careful to examine the mouths of all creeks coming into it, particularly from the southeast. At the mouth of Big Mahoning, about six miles above Kittanning, the canoes were seen drawn up to its western bank. He instantly retreated down the river, and-waited for night. As soon as it was dark, he made a raft, and crossed to the Kittanning side. He then proceeded up to the creek, and found that the Indiana had, in the mean time, crossed the creek, as their canoes were now drawn to its upper or northeastern bank.

The country on both sides of Mahoning, at its mouth, is rough and mountainous and the stream, which was then high, very rapid. Several ineffectual attempts were made to wade it, which they at length succeeded in doing, three or four miles above the canoes. Next a fire was made, their clothing dried, and arms inspected and the party moved towards the Indian camp, which was pitched on the second bank of the river. Brady placed his men at some distance, on the lower or first bank.

The Indians had brought from Sewickly a stallion, which they had fettered and turned to pasture on the lower bank. An Indian, probably the owner, under the law of arms, came frequently down to him, and occasioned the party no little trouble. The horse, too, seemed willing to keep their company, and it required considerable circumspection to avoid all intercourse with cither. Brady became so provoked that he had a strong inclination to tomahawk the Indian, but his calmer judgment repudiated the act, as likely to put to hazard a more decisive and important achievement.

At length the Indians seemed quiet, and the captain determined to pay them a closer visit. He had got quite near their fires his pet Indian had caught him by the hair and gave it a pluck, intimating the advice to retire, which he would not venture to whisper but finding Brady regardless of it, had crawled off-when the captain, who was scanning their numbers, and the position of their guns, observed one throw off his blanket and rise to his feet. It was altogether impracticable for Brady to move without being seen. He instantly decided to remain where he was, and risk what might happen. He drew his head slowly beneath the brow of the bank, putting his forehead to the earth for concealment. His next sensation was that of warm water poured into the hollow of his neck, as from the spout of a teapot, which, trickling down his back over the chilled skin, produced a feeling that even his iron nerves could scarce master. He felt quietly for his tomahawk, and had it been about him he probably would have used it but he had divested himself even of that when preparing to approach the fires, lest by striking against the stones or gravel, it might give alarm. He was compelled, therefore, "nolens volens," to submit to this very unpleasant operation, until it should please his warriorship to refrain which he soon did, and returning to his place wrapped himself up in his blanket, and composed himself for sleep aa if nothing had happened.

Brady returned to and posted his men, and in the deepest silence all awaited the break of day. When it appeared, the Indians arose and stood around their fires exulting, doubtless, in the plunder they had acquired and the injury they had afflicted on their enemies. Precarious joy - short-lived triumph! The avenger of blood was beside them! At a signal given, seven rifles cracked and five Indians were dead ere they fell. Brady's well-known war-cry was heard, his party was among them, and their guns (mostly empty) were all secured. The remaining Indians instantly fled and disappeared. One was pursued by the trace of his blood, which he seems to have succeeded in stanching. The pet Indian then imitated the cry of a young wolf, which was answered by the wounded man, and the pursuit again renewed. A second time the wolf-cry was given and answered, and the pursuit continued into a windfall. Here he must have espied his pursuers, for he answered no more. Brady found his remains there three weeks afterwards, being led to the place by ravens that were preying on the carcass. The horse was unfettered, the plunder gathered, and the party commenced their return to Pittsburg, most of them descending in the Indian canoes. Three days after their return, the first detachment came in. They reported that they had followed the Indians closely, but that the latter had got into their canoes and made their escape.

Brady's affair at Brady's Bend is given under the head of Clarion co.

The honor of having invented the "Independent Treasury" is generally awarded to Martin Van Buren, Amos Kendall, or some other statesman of Washington city and yet, according to the annexed extract from the Pittsburg Daily American, of Sept.' 16, 1842, the plan would seem to have been carried into successful operation in Armstrong co. long before it was ever thought of at Washington:-

The Widow S******-If not among the most extraordinary, this lady was, or we may say is, among flu: most original within I hi: range of our acquaintance, excepting perhaps the more lofty and renowned Madame Mitchell of Mackinaw, of whom we have spoken on several occasions. The widow S , at the time of our first acquaintance with that lady, owned and resided on one of the best farms on ____creek, in ___Co., Pa. In person she was large and masculine, and being of German descent, spoke English but badly. Her farm was in the finest order no one had better crops, or more generally had sure ones. The labor was performed principally by her sons, herself, and her daughters, with occasional assistance which she hired. But this conducting of farms is common with many other Pennsylvania widows. Some little time after our first acquaintance commenced with Mrs. S , she married [in 1825] a man named D____ .

But notwithstanding this event, she neither took his name, nor did they reside together. D____ owned and lived upon a farm some few miles distant each occupied their separate premises and fanned their own land-sold their own produce in their own name, and enjoyed their separate profits. To be sure D ____ would sometimes act as his wife's agent, and in making a market for his own produce would bargain at the same time for that of his wife but always, in this case, in the name of the widow S____ . It was the habit of D___ to visit his wife every Saturday evening, and remain at her house until Monday morning. This separation during the week was from no disagreement, but formally arranged for in their marriage settlement, which provided for this with an addition deemed necessary by the frugal and thrifty bride, which was that D____ should pay annually so many hundred weight of flour for his own board and the keeping of his horse for the one day and two nights of every week which brought him to the comfortable mansion (a large brick house with double bank bam to match) of the loving widow S ____ . The parties continued in this conjugal state for several years, when D___ died.

Her family had now grown up-her sons and daughters had become husbands and wives but all resided upon and worked the same farm. She was still the widow, not D___ , but S___ ,and by this name still announced herself, and made all her contracts and kept all her accounts. About a year after the death of D___ , she repaired to her factor and confidential merchant in the county town of , to take his counsel. An audience being granted, she stated to him that she had some intention to marry again, and advised with him on the subject, as an ordinary matter of business. " I should suppose that one so happily situated as you are, with everything rich and comfortable about you, and your sons and daughters grown up, would not think of such a thing at your time of life. I would advise you by no means to entangle yourself again in any marriage alliance." " You tink not, Mr. H____ ." " Why, it is very sincerely the advice I would give you, if that is what you want," said Mr. H___ . " Well, dat may be all very well and very goot but see here-a man I want, and a man I will have." " O, that is a very different thing altogether, and in that case I would advise you by all means to marry," said Mr. H____ . The ice being now broken, she stated to him that she had made up her mind to marry J. K____ , a substantial widower and farmer in the neighborhood-German like herself, and nearly of the same rotundity of form and feature. The same bargain was made, and the same arrangement as with D____ , and which exists, we believe, to this day. She still resides on her own place, enjoying undisturbed its control and its profits and though the wife of K ____ , retains her name of widow S___ . K____ makes his appearance, with his well-known light wagon, every Saturday evening, and takes his departure every Monday morning, and knows no more of what is doing at the farm of the widow S____ during the week, than on that of any other in the neighborhood. No two in the settlement have better horses, houses, or farms, or have them in better order, than K____ and the widow S____ , and no two enjoy more of the good things of this world to which they both add that perfect contentment of mind arising from having all that they wish and paying all that they owe, even to the annual stipend of flour, which is regularly put in the mill to the credit of widow S____ , by her affectionate and punctual spouse.

It may be added, as a remarkable fact, that this happy couple have no worldly property which they regard as being owned between them in common. We believe the widow S___ has had no children by either of her two last husbands. It is a singular instance of conjugal life, and without its parallel within the range of our knowledge. The facts are well known to many residing in the county of, by whom the originals of this story will be readily recognised.*

* The article above is copied precisely as it appeared in the paper, but in reply to our inquiries the editor has obligingly given us in full all the names left in blank above (for an obvious reason,) and has stated a number of other particulars concerning the family and characters of the parties concerned. Among other things he says: " All the particulars may be relied on as true to the letter, not having drawn upon fancy for a single fact there stated. The parties living all reside, and have done for many years, on Crooked creek, in Armstrong county are wealthy and highly respected among their acquaintances. I certainly regarded Mrs. S as no common woman, and her presence indicates this. She is large and her bearing lofty, bold, and confident, (though no way immodest) but rather as one unconscious of error, and competent to the management of her own affairs, and unconscious of any impropriety in their details. No one ever imputed ought against her honor, or fairness in dealing. She has little or no disguise, and what she wants ibe asks for." In a more recent letter he informs us that her last husband died this spring, (1843) It remains to be seen whether she will marry again-and why not?

Working as a Processing Technician for the Veterans History Project allows me to gain and capture a plethora of knowledge concerning American wars and first-hand Veteran experiences. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to step outside of the “processing box,” and give a gallery talk on the significance of two Army nurses who served during WWI. I discovered that giving a presentation can be a bit challenging, and somewhat intense. I’m so glad to have access to cool mechanisms like Facebook and this blog, which allow me to go back and summarize with clarity what I may have left out, and to reiterate the awesomeness of each nurse.

Support ships include two hospital ships, four salvage ships, two submarine tenders, four ammunition ships, five combat stores ships, four fast combat support ships, nine dry cargo ships, 15 replenishment oilers, four Fleet Ocean Tugs, four ocean surveillance ships, four container ships, 16 cargo ships (used for pre-positioning of Marine and Army materiel), and seven vehicle cargo ships (also used for prepositioning). [ 1 ]

Ships denoted with the prefix USS are commissioned ships or are nearing completion for commissioning. US Navy support ships are often non-commissioned ships operated by and organized within Military Sealift Command. Those denoted USNS are owned by the US Navy those denoted by MV are chartered.

There exist a number of former US Navy ships which are museum ships, some of which may be US government owned. One of these, the USS Constitution, a three-masted tall ship, is kept as a commissioned ship of the US Navy (and hence is listed here), as a special commemoration for that ship alone.

Current ships include commissioned warships that are in active service and also warships that are in the later stages of construction or that are undergoing sea trials but which have not yet gone through the ceremony of ship commissioning. Ships in early stages of construction (keel not yet laid down) are not included. Also included as current ships are support ships (usually denoted USNS) and leased ships (usually denoted MV) that are never commissioned but which are part of the effective force of the U.S. Navy.

There are about 436 ships listed here (238 USS ships, 198 USNS, MV, SS and other ships) that meet this definition of current ships. [ 1 ]
