    "History of the Lackawanna Valley":
    The taxables of Providence township, embracing the entire settlement from Rixe's Gap to Pittston, numbered in 1790 ninety persons, sixty-one only of whom resided within its boundaries, as will be seen by the following "Providence Assessment for the Year 1796."

    Benjamin Atwater, 0 Oxen, 1 Cow, 0 Horses, Farmer, Residence Providence Twp., Tax: $1.26

    Scott's Note: I am not sure if the Benjamin Atwater cited above in "History of the Lackawanna Valley" is the same Benjamin Atwater, born 1727 in New Haven, Connecticut, and died 1799 in Cheshire, Connecticut. In fact it seems very unlikely given his age and the fact that he died in Cheshire. But this is included here just in case for other researchers.
