McKean County: Would love to hear more on the research of the town of MORRISONS being in McKean County. Dew Drop was in Warren County and McKean County line is north of that location by about a mile. The town of Morrison had a post office noted as Morrison's Cross Roads and was part of Warren County. Post Office opened 8-10-1828. No information has been found to the exact location of the town or the last day of service for the post office. All information welcomed!

You are most welcome

Wow who new there were so many places-thankyou!
