The 1808 Tioga Assessment list included what is now Athens, Ridgebury, South Creek, Wells, and the western portion of Litchfield townships in present day Bradford County. Tioga Township was formed in 1790 as part of Luzerne County and was bounded by the north line of the State, on the east by the county line, on the south by an east-west line and on the west by the county line. The  township was seventy-six miles in length from east to west and slightly more than eighteen miles from north to south. In 1795 the township was divided and the southerly portion became Wysox. In 1797 Tioga was further divided and Rev.David Craft in the History of Bradford County, Pennsylvania states that the northern portion became Athens and the southern portion became Ulster and that the name Tioga was "lost to our county." However, this does not seem to be the case as the four townships in the 1800 census were Tioga, Ulster, Wysox, and Wyalusing. Each of the first three were about six miles from north to south and seventy-five from east to west. In 1801, Tioga was further reduced by the creation of Rush and Mt. Zion (now Orwell) Townships, which included present Windham and Warren Townships. There were no further reductions until the 1808 assessment list, which was probably created in 1807 for the 1808 tax year. Shortly thereafter, in 1808, present Athens, Ridgebury, South Creek, and Wells Townships that had been included in Tioga Township, Luzerne County became part of Smithfield Township, Lycoming County until the creation of Bradford County. A map on page 112a of Rev. David Craft's History of Bradford County, Pennsylvania shows Tioga Township as it would have existed in 1807-08, which is labeled as Athens, before the creation of Lycoming County, the dotted line indicating that portion that became Lycoming County - J.
