2. Note from Marian Biles:

 

“The Connecticut settlers came first to the mid-Pennsylvania section.  Then the King granted Pennsylvania a claim that overlapped the Connecticut claim in mid-Pennsylvania.  Captain Alexander Patterson was sent up to drive out the “squatters” (as they were called).  My Irvine ancestors were among them (on great grandma’s side).  There was actual fighting – most of the people who stayed there bought their improvements a second time.  The Stevens were among them.  Old Asa Stevens was killed in the Wyoming Massacre, and some of the people fled back to Connecticut.  His son, Jonathan, fought in the Revolutionary War and came back to the Wyalusing area to settle.  Captain Patterson also had things to do with fighting Indians during the Revolution.  The “Pennamite Wars” kind of covered the times in mid-Pennsylvania, with Connecticut versus Pennsylvania settlers.”
