Residents of Opposition 1900, known as Beaver Meadows Tuscarora Township, Bradford County, PA.
Submitted April 2005 by Carol HOOLSE Brotzman
The town of Opposition was first known as Bixby’s Pond. Named for Chandler Bixby who was the first landowner purchasing the land warrants. Then it bounced back and forth with the name Beaver Meadows/Bixby’s Pond.  This data can be found in the Rush Charge minutes and the Beaver Meadow Church records. The name Cottage Hill was the name on an 1868 map of Tuscarora Township, however I never find that name listed anywhere else. The name for the post office became disputed, and Aaron Culver said you might just as well call it Opposition, and it stuck from about 1885 to about 1905 it was a post office named Opposition, then it reverted back to being Beaver Meadow. There was never an actual “S” added, but some how history and time has made it Beaver Meadows with an “S”.

The residents in 1900 from a post office map that belonged to Herbert Keith Button (June 29, 1919 - October 30, 1998) and his wife Alma Dean Baker (June 13, 1921 - January 01, 1997)

Ford, George W. (Skinners Eddy, Wyoming Co.) r 46 cor 43, thresher, dairy 8 cows, farmer on shares for Martin Keeney of Harrisburg about 100, farm in Orwell 40 and in Auburn, Susq. Co. owned by wife.
A Google search went into your site and found this Directory. Safari browser find function located the above entry.
My grandfather was born here. "In Bradford County". He said in Laceyville, my mother figured it was Skinners Eddy but he thought that did not sound very good. That's Gramps, he did things like that. Your old directory answers the conundrum. Just into Wyoming County.
"Owned by wife" means Isabella C Keeney born Isabella Carolina Bergstresser. I can't find the location of the farm.
They went back to her ancestors' property in Harrisburg. That had been an inn in the days before the Camelback Bridge. The property was immediately behind the Harris Mansion on Front St, now the home of the Dauphin County Historical Society.
Presumably the inn was used when John Harris had his ferry there.
At that location, Martin Luther Keeney ran a grocery store.

KEENEY, Martin, grocer, Harrisburg, was born in Tuscarora township, Bradford county, Pa., August 23, 1848. He is a son of the late Luther and Arletta (Camp) Keeney. He was brought up on the farm and educated at the district schools in his township. He was engaged until 1892 in farming in Tuscarora township, where he still owns a well cultivated farm. In 1892 he sought a change of residence and occupation. He relinquished farming and came to Harrisburg, and in January, 1896, embarked in the grocery business in that city.
Mr. Keeney was married, October 15,1873, to Isabella C., daughter of William and Mary (Watson) Bergstresser, referred to in another place in this volume. They have one son, William Luther.
Mr. Keeney has served as town commissioner, school director, and inspector of Tuscarora township. He is a member of Wyoming Lodge, No. 238, K. of P., Wyoming county, Pa. In his political views he is a Republican. He and his wife are members of Zion Lutheran church.
