This volume contains 29 pages of lists of county-level officials in Pennsylvania from 1791-1815. The first sections are comprised of lists of sheriffs (12 pages) and treasurers (12 pages), organized by county. The names of all sheriffs and some treasurers are accompanied by dates. The third section is a 3-page list of "prothonotaries." One name is listed for each county, with the name of the "county town." This list is followed by the names of supreme court clerks (1 page). One later page has two additional names accompanied by county names and dates, though the office held by each, if any, is unknown.
