of Bradford County including the area along its present southern border
with Sullivan County PA was part of Luzerne County. The other one third
of Bradford County, an area in the northwest corner of the county, including
the townships of Athens, Burlington, Smithfield and Ulster was a detached
part of Lycoming County. Chemung was still part of Tioga County NY.
